Another solid week in the books. Things are progressing nicely and my body is settling into the higher volume routine. All pains are being kept at bay with diligent therapies and disciplined pacing with liberal warm-ups and cool-downs. I'm pulling out all the stops and doing all the things I need to do to keep it rolling. All the things I used to complain about and make excuses not to do during the other 22 hours of the day not spent running. I've never averaged over 40 miles a week, but this is what I've been building toward since I started training in early 2011.
Next week we will be in the Nevada and Arizona deserts visiting family, rock climbing, running and Vitamin D...ing. Might try for some big game running if weather is right. Break out of the regimented script and go for it a bit.
|Where's Waldo? Easy to get lost in this kind of terrain. Look for the green speck striding out like a Kenyan;)|
|Lush Rapid River, green as always. B training for Pocatello.|
|B shooting some cooldown/shakeout footage on the Rapid River Road. Love the SCOTT All Mountain Tech shirt.|
|This magic recovery water was ice about a mile upstream. Whatever it takes. |
Pain R Good, as the Old Man would say.
|With the lack of recent snow and frosty temps, I've been able to run to Brundage Summit lately. Big time early season altitude and vert bonus.|
