The beginning of the end?
Hopefully this is the end of my off-season and I can start to get some full health in place and start to really build. I had a good week of building, but can feel yesterday's run in my upper chest (nothing too bad). I'm not even 85%, but I've been working-out. I'd like this next week to be "WEEK ONE" in my (end of) '09 - '10 campaign.
Here's my little comeback, so far:
9/30 - 4 miles
10/1 - 2 miles
10/3 - 2.5 mile hike on Ray Miller
10/4 - 4 miles (went too hard at the end. .. "I want to run, bad.")
10/5 - 4 miles (felt pretty weak)
10/7 - 40 minutes on my trainer
10/8 - 5 miles on hilly trail (run/hike)
10/9 - 8 miles (6-am & 2-pm) Felt very very tired/weak, elevated HR
10/10 - 7.5 miles, hilly. Energy was pretty good so I just ran, but the HR was way too high. Oh well. It "felt" good.
10/11 (today) - 1 hour at the gym doing core and strength work. I will take the rest of the day off. Yesterdays ("hard") run kicked my ass. I'm going to hunker-down and hope this next week can build.
~37 miles in a week and a half.
I'm drinking a bud lite right now at 12:30 watching baseball and football and procrastinating the 100+ papers I have to grade. Yuck. If I end-up in the Hop Head, trouble.
Congrats to Craig Alexander and Chrissie Wellington. Pretty convincing.
And congrats to JW on his first CX win.
