Training training.

On Wednesday after accupuncture, my pain in my adductor went away. It said Sayanora.  Adios.  etc. Amazingly even though I kind of tried to beat it up quite a bit over the weekend, it never came back. I did tweak out my lower back really a lot. New Massage guy worked on it on Monday. …

Sunday…

Today went better. I practiced that rare thing.  COMMON SENSE. When I woke up the hip was stiff and sore and I was walking around very timidly. It hurt.  My walking looked kind of like this: After I moved around a bit it got a bit better. I went and cycled.  Oddly this song kept …

Up and Down…Round and Round.

It’s been quite a week…and yes it’s only Wednesday. Monday I did a small Brick in the afternoon: Cycle 40 min and run 2 miles. While I was on the cycle the exercise physiologist at the gym stopped to see how I was faring.  I was huffing and puffing on the cycle but really was …

taking stock

So today, I feel as if I am taking stock of where I am. What a week for me.  I wasn’t feeling great, I acted like a not very pleasant person, not really on purpose, but as I see it, the result is what you get, the intent may not matter as much.  Results matter …

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 …

Won that 20 miler, and Nerves and Niggles.

So yesterday was a 20 miler.  For many people this is the Crowning Achievement in a marathon training cycle.  They run one, then taper off for their marathon. Forgive me folks if this is you.  I am going to humbly suggest that this is really not the way to go.  I will add that my …

Mid week update On Friday…Hmmm

Well….to be fair, Monday Through Friday have a set of workouts…and then Saturday and Sunday have their own Beast Mode workouts. This has been a pretty nice week.  Crazy busy and somewhat exciting. i finally got all the numbers in and calculated out the last quarter of data for some things that had been problematic. …

On the Edge

Lately I feel with my training that I am on the edge of something good…     Unlike the last super speedy ramp up marathon cycle, this one has been very tough, but more steady.  I’ve been able to handle it better.  Physically my body is sore at times, but there is none of the …

MG the Builder….

So… I’ve lived through the first 2 days of the 17 mile aftermath..Started the first of 3 very tough weeks called build weeks. On Monday I swam a little bit, and I do mean a tiny little bit…took 21 mins. I am now doing flip turns all the time, not for the “coolness” of it..if …

Grumpy Butt Wednesday

Wednesday…not entirely fun… I was hoping to be able to do a lake swim. For whatever reason, this was impossible for coach man, and while yes I could go alone, I really did not want to do that.  Firstly, I’ve not been to this lake, and I am always a bit nervous about natural bodies …
