Hoka trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
2 x 800m - 2:38, 2:49The first 800m hurt as I pushed it a bit. The second one I just ran easy, wasn't too bad, but I needed full rest in between them.
In the past 4 weeks, I've been on the stairmaster, like last night, doing 20min; been on the bike including 2 ascents of Roark's Cove Rd., and some weights. It's been a decent rest. Have gained 5 lbs, and I'm lingering around 146-148, actually down a few from my peak. The metatarsalgia on my left foot is almost gone and the arthritis on my right is better, but not gone.
I hope to ramp it up and cross train a bit more before going back to a 3 to 4 day a week regime. Probably be back out on Sat. Colder weather is coming later this week, Sat. should be sunny in the low 40ºs.
It's been a crazy never ending season. Outdoor Nationals - 15 weeks - then World meet - 15 weeks, then Indoor Nationals - 4 weeks then Indoor Worlds. I really wish the Perth meet was a month or 2 earlier. It would have given me more rest.
