While I heal up my injured arm, I can still focus on cardio and running. That is what I did Monday morning and it was a beauty. Monday morning workouts are usually an easy run or recovery run, so the idea is slow and simple and just run. Well this morning that is what I did and I managed to beat my personal record for my morning course. I went from my best 1 mile being 16:50 to 15:45 this morning! I could not believe the time difference. Same path I almost always run these days, but a much better time. I am unsure if it is the strength and plyometric training or the new found miles on the bike. I could tell I was running a little heavier as my lungs were a little heavy, but I was not out of breath. So a great run and a great way to finish off a Monday. I do not know if anybody is aware of this, but if you want to for some odd reason see more details of my run or want an interactive version with a map click the image to go to the public page. Its actually pretty cool what this program includes for the public display of data page to have functionality wise. I cannot wait to start swimming again, which thanks to some comments I might start doing some suggested drill work tomorrow.
The elbow is feeling better, just icing it allot and keeping up with the ant-inflammatory medications. The funny thing is that my wife keeps telling me that if I want to train like a serious athlete, injuries have to be handled like a serious athlete!!! Too funny. Cant’t heal up soon enough. Overall a great run this morning with amazing results. Tomorrow is a lower body lifting and plyometric session. I should also be publishing some more articles on other aspects of ‘the plan’, I guess for my benefit, but to also inform about how I am approaching my training. If you can please share my ‘Tour De Cure’ fundrasing site with people you know or on your blogs, as this is a really good cause that I believe is worth a few dollars. When I get paid tomorrow I will be donating and I hope to get this going. I believe we can all do our parts and we can help fund the fight against diabetes, so please share it on your blog and/or with people you know and give me a hand to reach my goal. Til next time.
