Week 02, 2011 training summary

This week I actually got in my first core weight training of the year, and it has been a long time since my last one.  Looking in the mirror I noticed how scrawny my arms and shoulders were looking, and decided I had put them off long enough.  While it felt good to lift again I did have the normal pains that come from getting back into the groove.

In fact, I felt so good after getting in the core workout that I decided to cut lose a bit and let my legs run as fast as they wanted on Thursday.  I loved the speed, but have been paying for it since.  My hips and knees let me know the speed was too much at this level of mileage.  I am not a 20-something year old, and my body is not as forgiving as it once was.  So I will be slowing it down a bit to allow my body to recover, while still getting in the miles I need for the ultra coming up.
