Two Weeks Ending 12.16.12

There was a period of no running and some heavy lifting and then there was last Saturday.

Saturday - 10 miles, Luna Sandals - foot was a little tweaky and I called it a day at 10 miles

Sunday -  6 miles

Monday - 8 miles, NB MT 101, it was cold!

Tuesday - AM Gym - Bench / Squat, PM - 4 miles, NB MT 110

Wednesday - 30 min Stairs

Thursday - 0 - crazy day at work and then daughter was throwing up in the evening

Friday - AM Gym - Press / Dead, PM - 4 miles

Saturday - 14 miles, 10 miles Luna Sandals / 4 miles BF - This was a really nice run

Sunday - 0 - I woke up today and my left foot was bothering me just enough to not push things but not so much as to worry me.

Total - 46 miles and 30 min stairs

I've been easing back into things after taking nearly two weeks off to try and let my left foot right itself.  I'm pleased with the progress and will try to get in an actual speed workout in tomorrow after work.  I'm continuing to make progress with my lifting and have started to turn my sights to a 300 lb Dead.

I've Been Off

I'm currently wrapping up my longest break from running in probably a year or more.  I decided to take a break when my left foot just refused to stop bothering me.  I tried running in shoes for a week but even that extreme measure wasn't enough.  I was really starting to worry that I had obtained a stress fracture at some point but things seem to be nearly 100% after a little over a week off.  I plan to get back to running tomorrow and jump right back into things.  I'll probably scratch Bandera 100k from my schedule and make Cowtown 50k my next race.

One benefit of not running was that I was able to get in 4 lifting sessions.  I am finally getting comfortable with deadlifts and am really starting to increase the weight that I am lifting.
