Things are just a little too hectic right now. It’s very difficult to set aside time to write. Hence, this quickie update.
I am slowly getting back into my routine with running, cycling, and swimming. However, I am also keeping up with my weights workout on Tuesday and Thursday as well. I do believe there is evidence that the strength training is improving my runs at least, if not other things. Two weeks ago I put a four-miler on my Wednesday run (the longest since — ‘the injury’) and ran it with a 10:21 pace. That’s really fast for me, folks. My other 5K runs have seen similar improvements as well.
I have my swims back to mostly normal and up to thirty lengths (20 yds. each). I am doing them slowly and leisurely, but still doing well. I’ll stick at this distance for at least a couple weeks before moving forward.
It’s April and cycling is going. I’ve signed up for the Ride for Heroes in Aledo, Tx again. It’ll be my first ride this year. I’ve also signed up for the Head for the Hills Rally in Cedar Hill again. I like both of these rides for various reasons. I’m going to take the Trek to Aledo, but I’m getting the new and improved Fuji prepared for Cedar Hill.
Work’s been very busy of late. But, things are headed in a good direction. I actually have a building to care for again, even if it’s not completely mine to care for.
Tomorrow, I’ll add a 5-miler on Wednesday. I’m meticulously watching the increase by only 10% rule. I’ve had a few more incidents with the knot swelling up on the foot and causing pain, but they are lessening in intensity. So, I think things are slowly on the mend. I apologize for the quick post, but it’ll have to do for now. Hopefully, I’ll find better time to write soon. Happy cycling!
