Fingers Crossed

I am unsure but…I believe I am seeing some improvement in my symptoms for real. I am noting that gradually over the weekend and yesterday and this morning that I am moving a little bit more intuitively and naturally. I still have a lot of Nerve symptoms.  My right calf burns rather all the time. …

The rest of Peak Week.

So the rest of peak week was “exciting” Holy Heck.  It was SO HARD. Thursday I had on the docket 10 by 800 repeats.  So I put on my game face and went for it. Apparently I really LIKE 800 reps.  By the time I got to the end of the workout, I had run …

WTF moment

I’m currently living in Limbo. Not as much fun as the limbo at a party. I’m waiting to hear if our trip to Nigeria is a go or a “no”.   I’m at a point where I don’t care either way but I don’t particularly want to waste a lot of time getting the one …

Season of….

I seem to be going through an odd season in training.  I’ve been injured, and it just seems since then I have not been able to get on an even keel since then. The hip injury has pretty much healed, but every day something seems to be hurting.  On friday my leg was reacting to …

Fingers Crossed….

    Fingers Crossed, I ran on Monday and Tuesday.  Today I had 3 miles on the schedule and as discussed with Goof-ball coach, I did it in the pool after a 30 minute spin.   At work, I was walking with a curious gait.  So, I decided that Motrin was in order. I theorized …

Return to running, goof balls and….

So yesterday I returned to running with an inglorious run. Kind of like the Inglorious fruits and Vegetables:   It was just 2 miles.  He wrote: run 2 miles fast.  Not because I should run fast after 3 weeks essentially sweating it out in the pool, but probably because he knew me well enough to …

Swimming the summer away

Apparently my coach was not too impressed with my little 4 mile run on Sunday. Late Sunday Night… I get this email… Patience is prime. ‘In all your getting, get wisdom’ You need to be 100%. This week do all the runs in the pool. Just tread of the same amount of time it would take …

Sunday’s realization…

I had a pretty good mid distance run today 7 miles.  Not really a long, but I was nervous about it, mostly because 7 just seemed so different than 6. It went a lot better than expected.  I even had mile 3 at what would be considered a good “tempo run pace”  for me.  The …

speed success

Thursday.  Speed work.  Treadmill. Again work is driving me crazy.  I kind of want a different job  but…I am not sure what that would be. Anyway because of a Work Retreat on Saturday ( Retreat- code word for 8 hour meeting)  I have to take a lot of extra time off this week that I …

Messed up Tuesday

I couldn’t get out of bed this morning.  I could not sleep last night.  My sports massage has a pattern.  Post massage my knees and other joints hurt.  I should have taken motrin but I was being stubborn and thinking if I just slept it would improve. I just couldn’t sleep though because things were …
