10/31/10 - Weight Work and Core

Most of my working out is non-weights (pushups, crunches, pullups, lunges, squats, one-legged running man squats). I only used weights for my calves/Achilles work. Felt good...3-sets of 15. Stretched after and called it a day.

Back on the road in the AM. That 3.7 mile out and back is going to be my best friend this week.

10/30/10 Return to the Road - 3.7 Miles

3.7 miles
8:06 avg

Just an easy run down Blossom to Crestwood and back. I was really nervous as I wanted the run to feel good, but knew that it may not just from the amount of time off. Felt decent, but boy am I outta shape. The run back was actually just a little slower than the run there. So, for the first run back, I positive split by about 10 seconds. I'll take that for now, though, just to be back on the road.

Temporary Blogging Hiatus

The time is right at this time to go on a little "vacation", so to speak, from blogging.

The Achilles injury persists, but I've made some decisions on actions to take and habits to adopt, all the while, I also feel like during this time, I'm going to keep things a little low-profile.

The goal, however, remains the same. I hit a low point last week where I contemplated hanging up the running shoes altogether. It's been a rough time, in the area of running, lately. However, despite the pit I seemed to fall into a week ago, light has shown itself at the end of the tunnel.

Have chatted with a few people on different topics and taken that input and have decided the next course of action. The next 4-weeks will be pretty important.

I may blog a little during the next month, but it won't be necessarily about what I'm doing in any detail, but perhaps will cover running and racing plans going forward, as that is an ever-changing organism right now.

I appreciate my few readers, that yall continue to check-in to see what's happening, and have-no-fear...I will return to blogging. Even more so, I will return to the roads, if all goes well. I try not to say "God-willing", because I once heard a guy say "I don't like it when people say 'God-willing', cause I just tell them 'Yes, God is willing....are you?'" I always liked that mentality. Yep, God is willing. Am I? Guess we'll see.

See yall soon!
