Good Weekend

Took over a week to fully recover from climbing Mt. Katahdin but it’s done.  Recovering from over-exertion is taking longer and longer it seems.  Until today I hadn’t run what I thought to be a decent workout since the 5 mile race on August 15th.

Work is stressful and is taking a lot of energy – leaving little for anything else.  So I was glad to have three days off and I rested up a storm.  Lots of reading and napping and with the heat breaking I’m feeling much better.

Ran a nice 13 mile run in cool weather with Mike on Sunday.  Easy pace but the legs were still a little sore by the end.  Good to have Mike back from his travels.  Perhaps he’ll settle down now.  Of course, he’s scaring me with a lot of rot talk about his fitness level.  I had to take him to task.  You’d think he’d just had surgery or something.

Monday I slept in and got caught up with the hectic schedule of reading and napping. 

And this morning I was ready for a nice workout.  Long sleeve temperatures and very little wind made for a nice progression run.  Did 10 miles @ 6:22 pace (last in 5:48) feeling very good throughout.  Then I jogged another three around town looking for Eric to see if he was about.  I didn’t find him though.  Finished with some striders and drills.  Just what I needed to lift my spirits.

Nice to see you back in the swing of things Andrew, still zooming along. Take out some of the work stress during your runs.

I'm surprised he managed to get a word in edgeways... you would have had a massive backlog of lame jokes to 'humour' him with ;)
