I’m into week 2 of my training plan and everything seems to be progressing satisfactorily. I did take an extra day off this week – Tuesday. I had a long night on Monday, an early wake up Tuesday, followed by a two hour commute, a networking meeting, and an hour drive back home. By the time I got home in the early afternoon I was physically and mentally exhausted. Getting old sucks. I could have hit the trails, but opted for a much needed nap instead. Did I say getting old sucks?
I vindicated myself yesterday. I went out in the late afternoon for a smallish hill workout. All I have to say is today I am one sore dude. But – unlike a couple months ago where “sore” was bad, today “sore” is good. Maybe – just maybe – I’ve turned a corner here. I still have a long way to go, but I’ll take it for now.
I’ll be back out around the Lower Back Bay today for three more miles. It’s a beautiful Southern California day….
