Sooooo

I took a rest last weekend,  and this week has been a nice week of “active rest” so far.  No grueling workouts.  It seems this week, I just breeze into the gym, cycle a bit, and head out. That is not entirely true, but it is a week of active rest. I am slower than …

Who is the Coach?

What a week of lessons. I was really excited to run the Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon this Sunday.  I mean REALLY excited.  I have not raced in a long time.  I wanted to get out there and I wanted to see what I could do with a bit of rest.  The weather was slated to …

The rest of the Week.

Wow what a CRAZY week. Look here for some details.  I actually didn’t give all the details, but really…it’s enough.  by Tuesday I was having major problems with fatigue and continuing myalgias.  I attempted my workouts and they were AWFUL.  So I went and had a consultation with my coach…and another guy at the gym …

Monday.

Well, this monday was a doozie. I did not get a lot of sleep over the weekend.  My legs were in too much pain.  Soooo, on Sunday…when I started to feel better, I was able to sleep better. THis was a good thing, except that I had to get up super early for the Infection …

And the Burning Calf Saga continues.

So… the calf problem really continued through the night and kept me from sleep… Here is a excerpt from the longest email in the world about legs. On Friday… I started to have this kind of burning, soreness in my calves.  I chucked on compression and didn’t think too much of it.  It continued on …

Hunk of Hunk of burning legs.

Today I resumed my normal training.  I am really regretting my choice to do the pool workout.  My calves are KILLING me.  They feel like the last training cycle, when I did a lot of pool work.  Just burning and burning.  I had trouble sleeping last night because they hurt terribly.  So I took motrin …

And the training continues.

So, I did not do yesterday’s track workout.  I feel entirely LAZY.  That workout is one of the hardest ones I do weekly, and I usually am still tired from it the next day.  So today…not so tired. But my legs have started to get that bad knotty feeling. Yesterday I pool jogged the speed …

totally unexciting post

I am taking a quasi rest day. My hip flexors are still not quite right.  Got email from the coach telling me to just bag the 800’s workout.  I feel like a total slug, but he is correct, I have some pain that if I continue to just hammer at this stage, will just turn …

Mid week….

So today was sort of the proving day after the massage.  I woke up and found it was easier to actually sit up and get out of bed. My hip flexor on my left felt like something unusual though.  My Psoas which was Messed up seems to have figured itself out. My left ankle feels …

Running and getting wet.

With the scare of the ab tweak… my swim/run/swim/run seems to have been dramatically shortened.   Took advantage of my manager and decided to go into work at 7, rather than 8 to get prepared for a meeting at 11 am.  As it turns out all the meeting prep that my manager seemed to feel …
