Peak…week.

This week has lower miles than last week….but… it’s still….  exciting. Monday I had a swim.  This was not exciting. It was peaceful, and long and stretchy. I was still tired from the longer run on Sunday, so… Monday night I had a deep tissue massage.   It was a challenge to get through.  The …

Yassos

I have not been very faithful about posting for a bit now.  I have been entirely full up of “life”  on time, which I think is a great thing.  I’m frankly amazed at myself that since the end of August and beginning of September, I’ve managed to go to Nigeria, interview for a new job …

Recovery Miles.

Wow.  So Sunday I did my ever so slow 12 miler and then spent the rest of the day kind of recovering.  I woke up a few times in the night and found moving about to be challenging. I knew I had 2 measly miles on the schedule.  I debated doing them in the pool…doing …

Could I be winning?

So yes, I am still sitting here in Florida.   Limbo Limbo.  I go back and forth, i want to go, then part of me doesn’t.  In part because training is going pretty much better than I expected this week. Tuesday I awoke and was disappointed to find out my left back tweak was still …

Boring…

Sooo,  my leg… It isn’t really better. It also isn’t all that bad. It’s a bit hard to tell what exactly is going on with it. I ran 2 miles today and struggled with all sorts of little niggles here and there, the intense heat and a feeling of frustration. I never settled into a …

Rest week continuith

I’m enjoying the workouts from rest week. They are all very short, and as such I can “push it”  a little on pace and such and kind of have a bit of fun seeing how fast I can go on these shorter workouts. I also feel somehow energized from the workouts, rather than beat down. …

Time Trial Friday

I’m rarely asked to do a time trial by my coach, so I was a bit surprised to see it on the plan, but, it occasionally happens. So today was a 1500 time trial in the pool.  Sadly in the morning, I realized there was also a 2 mile run.   2 miles is not …

It continues…

I had a bit of a bad feeling about Speed work today. I wanted to do it, but…like everything this week, I got out of the house a little late.  I slept OK.  I’m not really recovered from the lack of sleep. I saw the coach of tuesday and he reminded me that I need …

Sufferin’

Yeah, this is the week of suffer. Monday I swam long and ran 1 mile.  That one mile was incredibly painful. I was so excited too about monday as it is typically massage day.  Noooooo. My massage therapist took ill.  So I had to foam roll. which helped but it is not the same. Had …
