Well it has been a while since I posted but I needed the break as much as I need to post going forward. I tried to remember exactly why I started blogging and I can honestly say that the accountability was one of the major reason. That same accountability is what I need once again.
Damn, did those two days go by quick! It appears that our weather is trying to make a correction and get on track to late April temps. Seems like we've been in a grey wind tunnel for the past month.
Is it just me or have more runners turned to Crossfit to build strength and improve their running? I've been doing some of the Crossfit exercises on my own and even programed my own workouts. Have any of you sipped the Crossfit kool-ade?
I'm actually running on a consistent basis but nothing longer than 4 miles. If I feel any type of twinge or funny feeling in my knee I just stop! Not like in the middle of the street stop but stop and walk the remainder. So, I keeping my fingers crossed for a truely running summer.
I tried to purchase a Boston Strong Tee from the adidas.com website and they were sold-out in no time! Damn charitable runners................. HA
We had a local marathon in Lansing and there was definitely a larger police presence, even to the point of checking bags.
My spring TNT team is headed to their events in the next two weeks, so I'll be training without them. That damn empty nest syndrome is starting to creep in.
1) Second week of receiving supartz injections for my knee. I think they're helping but I'm also trying to run more. Duh!!!!!!
2) Is the Mitten state the only area where the sun refuses to show? I am so tired of wind and clouds....... I'm thinking of getting a sun lamp to run with.......
3) Is it just me or have any of you noticed that beside the media, the only other people really talking about the terrorist attack are runners? It's almost like it didn't happen or the fact that it was a running event it doesn't effect the majority of people.
Once again, why isn't the Monday after the Super Bowl a holiday?????
Especially this year with a thirty minute delay due to a power outage! Oh my aching head........
This weekend was the Kick-Off for the 2013 Summer season. We had a combine team group training session. I am still amazed at the number of people that have never really run outside! Fortunately we had snow, wind and cold temps, so it was a great way to get them started.... HA
I also went to a new Crossfit on Sunday afternoon, which was really late in the day for a workout on Superbowl Sunday......
It was an interesting accumulation of people at the box(Crossfit lingo) and I was the oldest by a large margin. Of course that meant that I had to prove myself.
We did Tabata of Squats, push-ups, rowing, butterfly sit-ups and toes-to-bar.
It kicked my ASS!
I was so close to saying hello to Pukey on the drive home........
It got me to thinking about the last time I was so close to puking in the finish chute of a 10 mile race.
