Week 19 to 27, 2011 training summary

Rather than bore everyone, including myself, with 9 weeks of very little training I have decided to consolidate the past 9 weeks into one post to catch up.  On a positive note I did end the first half of the year ahead of my goal with 1,066.16 miles, and if I stay healthy should be able to finish out my “2011 in 2011” goal. The groin and hip flexor injury I have been nursing for the past 9 weeks slowed me down a bit (especially in wk 22 through 24), but I still managed to put in some easy miles during the recovery.

Now that I am recovered from the injury I am thinking full speed ahead, and ready to decide on some event in the fall to train for.  Then I will put down a solid training plan to get me there.

Week 18, 2011 training summary

This week I tried a couple of core workouts using the Insanity Workout fit test.  Basically it is a sampling of a few exercises that help you gauge your progress through the 60 day workout routine, but it also worked well to let me know I am in pretty poor shape. (I already knew that from my hip injury, but really needed to beat the dead horse.)  So next week I will officially start the 60 day routine.

On another note, I am still on track to finish my 2011 miles in 2011.  So far I am at 933 miles and still have an entire month and a half to go to mid-year.  YAY ME!

Week 17, 2011 training summary

The hips just were not going to heal up if I kept running like I did last week, so this week I took a little break.  I still managed to get some miles in at a very slow pace though.  I am realizing that most of my recent troubles are due to a very weak core, so I will be looking for a way to fix that.

Week 16, 2011 training summary

Not a bad week.  Hips really hurt, but the slower pace helped. (Tuesdays faster pace should never have happened, but I paid for it.)   Went to judo a few times this week due to excitement after the clinic, but didn’t do much because of the hips.

Week 15, 2011 training summary

What a tough week.  I had so much work to do it was impossible to get any “me” time for runs.  However, I did get things done in time for a judo clinic on Saturday and Sunday where I managed to injure my hips pretty seriously.  I guess I will be running less, and slower, for awhile.  On Sunday evening I did get in a swim.
