The weatherman (I know – not PC, but someone needs to take the blame) had forecast a weekend of doom here in Southern California. Rain starting on Friday. Up to 6 inches by the time the storm blew out on Monday. I was ready to face the elements Sunday. The total upshot? About a quarter of an inch Thursday night, and six tenths an inch Saturday night. So, as ready as I was to face the elements on Sunday, I ran in cool temperatures to blue bird skies and big white puffy clouds. How boring can it get? Hmmph.
My wogging is on track. My back is still a little tender, but about five minutes into a run, everything seems to warm up and the pain goes away. I’m relieved it seems to only be a muscle strain of some type. I’m hoping to get up on the rowing machine by the end of the week.
Speaking of training:
- Monday: Rest
- Tuesday: (2 minute walk, 8 minute slow run) times 3
- Wednesday: Cross train. I’m going to attempt a 30 minute rowing session
- Thursday: (10 minute slow run, 2 minute walk) times 3
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: (12 minute slow run, 2 minute walk) times 3
- Sunday: Cross train.
I’m slowly working my way back. The really good news is my knee and groin are 100%. I’m hoping my fragile psyche doesn’t shatter during the next few weeks. I really miss things like this this past weekend. Grrrrrr….
