Thursday, January 31


Yesterday, on the heels of a busy morning meeting, I returned home later than usual missing my opportunity to run with the clinic. Rather, I left the house and jogged down a diminutive neighborhood path and onto the Lochside Trail. After completing three 95-mile weeks prior to Christmas, I’ve definitely become aware of my change in conditioning since the drastic cut in mileage. At first, I felt fresh and buoyant but lately I feel like a fraud. I’m afraid that I’m at risk of foregoing an all-important base and with the added intensity could be in danger of unwanted consequences. And so it was, that I decided to make a change and in the immortal words of MARRS “Pump Up the Volume”… slowly.
