Training Updates

motivation-irresistable

For those of you playing our home game, you noticed I haven’t been doing daily posts every day this week. Between being sick and subsequently doing something to anger both my IT bands, I haven’t been running for two weeks. It seemed repetitive to come on each day and say “Yep, still not running.”

But there is good news to be shared. I accompanied Stacy to the Y last night and did a test 5k on the treadmill, starting at 7.0mph and topping out at 8.5mph. My legs were a bit tight, but loosed nicely as the run progressed. So long as I don’t do anything stupid (yeah…) I should be good to return to a full training schedule.

Also, I am running in the noon slot at the March 4 Team Hoyt tomorrow (Sun 3/23) at Bar145. Come by, support the charity, and watch the human hamster on his wheel. It should be interesting running a 5k on a treadmill inside a gastropub. But hey, it should be a unique experience if nothing else!

Of course, it is not all sunshine and unicorns. My strategy of “not running so eat like a vacuum” had the predictable result. I managed to put back on quite a bit of weight in the last two weeks. I knew what I was doing and that it was not helpful, but when I’m not running it is hard to fight those temptations. Back on the horse today, though.
