Workout :: Easy tonight

Took it a bit easy tonight as I’m still trying to let the damage from last Sunday’s run heal. The shin is coming along and I hope to be able to run on Saturday morning. I did back and shoulders. Got the job done and got out of there. Great efficient workout.

Workout :: great all around session

Had a great workout session tonight. Was chest and shoulders and threw in abs and some arms too. Had heaps of energy given that I am taking a few days off running to let the right leg heal up solid before getting back at it. The race is too close to take a chance at a big injury.

Running Log :: Legs still beat up

My legs are still feeling the effects of the 21k run on Sunday and were not ready to be put to use. I only did 2k of my 14.5km run and decided to play it smart and lay up. I can’t get hurt this close to the marathon. A few days off will do the trick.

Workout :: Great back

Great workout. Having a great time at the gym tonight. Very excited to get back to this hard core after the marathon. Having watched the documentary about the Crossfit Games I must say, I’m rather interested in trying some of that stuff.

Running Log :: Bad 21k

This was a horrific 21k run and really beat the hell out of my legs. Enough so that it will require some time off. I got lost and then overheated. The trail I was lost on (Steve Bauer) really beat the hell out of my legs. It was really a motorcycle path and there were so many up and downs and larger sized gravel. Nothing good came of this run and I should have walked home.

Workout :: First day back

Had a great workout on my first day back after vacation. I’m really trying not to expell too much cardio energy in here. Right now it is more just keeping the body in as best physical shape as possible without overdooing it.

Cottage 2017

Well it was time to head up to the cottage for a week with my sister’s family and the girls. We had an awesome week. Some of the highlights were obviously fishing, kids kneeboarding (Tailem and Jesse) as well as the adults. I swam across the river. Did made our way down to the damn and got our pics like the previous year. Shawn and I tried to go kayaking but lost the trailer 2x as you can see in the pics. There was lots of seadoing and just a great time all around. We even played lots of retro video games on the Raspberry pi and it’s fun to Watch the kids enjoy the games we enjoyed as kids.

Running Log :: Fast KM in there

I headed out for my 6.5km run and having missed my intervals decided to do this like a tempo run. I had an insane km in there and thought I was going to break the 4 min mark. Was only 5 seconds off. Will have to try that one again some other time.

Running Log :: bear/rottweiler

Nice 14.5km run which should have been uneventfull but the bear/dog (rottweiler) was enough to scare the crap out of me. I thought it was a big bear far down the road and eventually he barked and started coming in my direction. Turned out to be a very big rottweiler. Eventually a truck came by and gave me a ride around the dog and the drived told me he was friendly. “He’ll sooner lick you to death!” I wasn’t in the mood to prove his theory.

Running Log :: Short one with Nyah

Nyah wanted to come out and it was the day after my long run so we did 4k. I had hoped for 5 but she hasn’t run in a very long time.
