The meds are done, energy's back and I do feel better (although I'm having some blood work done this week because I have other concerns).
60 min spin. And then I threw my lower back putting on a sock! I’ve been working on my lower back so it’s obviously a stress.

The key here is the 45 minute runs everyday since Thursday. 45 min. runs are great right now. I'm going to build build build. It's just nice to be running strong(er). Tonight the HR (yeah I'm checking periodically) was really good.
My body wanted to run faster, but I kept things totally in check. I'm going to build a base like last year. I will run hard when I can (when I can tag along with someone like JW!), but it's about getting strong and injury/cold proof.
That is the theme. March is January. I'm starting over. My big races are in (generally speaking) August, October, November and December. Staying healthy is the number one goal. Everything else is secondary. If I stay healthy, I will get stronger and since I'm getting smarter (right?), I should get faster. Whatever.
It's just nice to run and as one said to me recently "Get healed, get rid of your cold, and get some vitality back in your days and ways."
