This is the longest period I've not posted on Sprint Forever.
Just wanted to check in and report that I've been staying off the track and continuing to stay active with resistance work, bicycling, swimming, and some running on grass. The initial report on my MRI shows no significant issues that would indicate surgery or treatment. I am awaiting the hard copy of the report and a follow up with the orthopedist.
I've been shifting my emphasis to guitar playing, which is my profession. The time I've taken away from it has increased my passion for it. Life is a balance. So, instead of sore feet, I now have sore fingers from playing so much, and it feels good.
Compared to last off season, I am in exceptional shape. With the pubalgia issues behind me, I am working daily on core and upper body. I did 3 sets of glutes last night and am getting anxious to get back on the track but I really should not do more than once a week , maybe beginning in mid Sept. I need to keep the spikes off until maybe Nov. and I'm looking at new training shoes.
While I'm sure I've lost some aerobic fitness, I'm pretty certain I could turn a sub-59 sec 400m right now. My weight is excellent and I've kept really low body fat. I'm still at race weight despite the fact I'm eating pretty much anything I want... bread, chips, occasional greasy food.
I was 139.4 lbs this morning. If I can maintain this level of fitness, I should be rarin' to go by the time the MTSU Christmas Invitational comes around in 14+ weeks.
