Thanks, and right back atcha 🙂
Thanks! I felt lucky to have the opportunity.
Dialing back the mileage for a while. Making sure to get in all my strength training. Being better about foam rolling. And paying more attention to diet. That's the challenge part of R&R...but I usually associate R&R with something more fun. It's already feeling a little boring.
All of those notifications are optional. You can try them or turn them off. And it's up to you whether to let specific people follow you. I was a little reluctant (in case I had a meltdown on the course), but it was fun.
Thanks! I feel so happy to have this one.
I've done some short easy runs yesterday and today. Yesterday I also did one of the "quick strength" workouts. They have gotten a lot harder. I'm starting to think the book is pretty good but that people with some strength training base should skip the first 2 weeks of the program or maybe double up the sets. It's presented as a progression, but the jump is huge. The first couple weeks are really easy, and there's no way that after doing those few workouts you would "progress" enough to be ready for the longer, harder ones.
I'm not sure if I mentioned this, but I've been taking Spanish classes once a week via zoom. Much like the strength program, they have also been getting much harder. Today we reviewed the preterite tense for regular and irregular verbs. That's a lot of rusty old knowledge to dig out all at once. I more-or-less remember it but haven't spoken most of those words out loud in decades. I've mostly be practicing by reading novels or listening to podcasts.
