Week 29, 2011 training summary

Travelled to Ohio to visit family over the weekend, so did not get a full week of running, and it was worth it.  Had a great time catching up, and playing with my grand-kids.

Week 28, 2011 training summary

This was a great week of training.  While I still do not have any plans on my next event, I will continue to train and rebuild my miles.  It seems strange to be rebuilding almost from scratch, but that is what is happening.  After the 14 mile long run I was tired, legs hurt, and I ate all day long.  In looking at my logs I remember when 14 miles was a pretty easy run, and I was completely functional afterwards. (I was running a lot more miles per week at that point.) While it is a little painful, it is also fun to go through it again.

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.
