Week of February 24th - March 2nd, 2014

4miSS/29min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Left knee is stiff.  Nice day.

2mi/13min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Knee is stiff.  I lifted weights and played some basketball at the Y. 

6mi/38min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Knee a bit stiff.  Trails firm and fast.  Cold day, 16 degrees.

5mi/35min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Lifted weights and got huge.

2mi/13min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Lifted weights.  Played some hoops.  Lowered the hoop to 8ft after and played dunk hoops with some of my former students.  Class was still in session as I dunked all over them.  Fun stuff!

4mi/26min in Caumsett Park with Ferenc.  We had a good drive down to Long Island, NY without too much traffic.  Ferenc booked us a room at the Black Lung Inn.  We stayed in a smoking room which was absolutely awful.  Good dinner.  Had fun staying up late and talking with Fyffe and Ferenc, acting like it was a middle school sleep over.

0mi.  I decided to bail on the race as I wanted to just jog the 25K as a test, but it would have costed me $55.00.  Decided to save my knee and my money and just crew for Ferenc with Fyffe.  It was a blast crewing.  Ferenc ran a monster race, taking 3rd in 3:04:16.  Some day, I'd like to be in shape and give the 50K a go.  It looks fun.

Total for the week:
23mi.  My knee is still stiff and I can feel it on every stride when I'm running.  I'm just happy to be lifting weights, playing some hoops, and running a little bit.  My body is starting to feel really good, except for my knee.  I feel strong and flexible and explosive again.

  1. Saturday sounds fun. Hope you middle school guys got to play Truth or Dare, Ding Dong Ditch, Prank Phone Calls, and Egg That House.
