Ha! Nor rhabdo, Rob! I just needed to do a few days of hot and cold.

Swam last night for the first time in a long time, because I just could not run or bike one more day. I trained pretty hard for a really challenging race, it was going well, but then I think I overtrained. My taper into leg openers, oooh, that sounds special, turned into something else. Well, lesson learned!

Having fun, looking forward to getting back into the gym as the daylight gets shorter and the weather sets in. Hopefully my injuries will be more healed and ready to go!

Back in the gym 2x this week, bad roads precluded me from riding outside and I just could not bear to set up the trainer. I need some good movies or sufferfest videos or something i suppose! My upper body strength is diminishing, which is to be expected. It's ok, because I'm going to re-set and focus on very specific areas now. Injuries are still troublesome but there are definite work arounds. Also, full-on warm up is more critical now than ever. I had some pretty good fun this year, looking forward to an even stronger season in 2012! It's gonna be a good year.

January 1st:

Had plans for a new years hike today, ended up waiting 'til 2 to go for a run. It should have ben a rest day, but H kept pushing me, so I did hill sprints and speedwork for about 3 miles. Then I ate mostly black eyed peas and spinach, and a little bit of rice dream and 2 applesauce/flax muffins. Totally stuffed. I'm looking forward to getting back on the bike so much that I'm even thinking about riding up to that lake I dislike so much! Now that the holidays are over, I can get back to focusing on my goals. It's funny how the structure of way overbooked work days and work weeks can actually be such an asset to training because I can put my workout schedule on autopilot and just make it happen that way.

Hey, you too Lobster! I hope this year is full of surgery healing for you!

jan 2:
should have made this a full rest day, but i just took it easy.
1 hour trainer ride
5 min jumprope
3x50 stability ball sit ups

my legs hurt today from the speedwork yesterday. not doms, just hurting. i think i prob would have benefited from a full rest day, but i just couldn't do it. i'll take a proper rest day closer to the end of the week. i have to find some time and identify some target races for this year so we can come up with a great training plan. i just need a few minutes to focus. i'm so busy!

Happy New Year!

I think I'm going to be in PDX this Saturday night for Ed's Plant Fit Grand Opening. Should be fun! I haven't been in PDX much at all the past year, just a few days total in the past few months, but I plan to make it to town this weekend. Let me know if you're around.

Hope all is great!

Rob

Thanks, John. I'm planning on it. You do the same! Your progress is seriously inspiring.

RC, Ed's thing does look fun! I have a lot going on Saturday, but I might be able to pop by for a bit. It would be great to see you!

Jan 3:
36 mile ride, stayed mostly chill except for a couple hills in heavy gearing. Focused on pedal stroke and my hamstrings were toast. I think spending so much time running over the past couple weeks did that.

1/4

24 mile ride. fast and snappy, although i did not have a computer and i was alone so i don't really know. but i am feeling strong and replenished. significantly, i made the decision to cut my ride short and come in out of the rain. i felt plenty strong, and i wanted to end strong. there's room for me to thrash myself later.
