Work a Little Harder

September 17, 2014

Today is a late work day, so I had a 3.5 mile run at the park on the calendar. Plans need to be flexible, especially when awaken at 3:30 am by the sound of the storm. I got out of bed around 6 and headed out to get it done as early and cleanly as possible in the neighborhood. Good thing I did, it looks like the rest of the day will be rainy, overcast and gray.

I've got the edge of a headache and sore throat. I think I'm fighting my sons ailment and winning so far. I'm rest in today to make sure I don't give the nasty virus a foot in the door.

9:48 AM: The alarm went off at 4:45 AM... and I painfully rolled over and shut it off. No way. No how. Even though I went to bed at 10 PM and had everything all packed up and ready to go... My shoulders and lats were just screaming. Figured it would be hard enough for me to keep up during Tuesday morning Masters anyway... without adding exploded shoulders to the equation. So... I stayed in bed.
I'll swim tomorrow night with the Wednesday night crew. Not looking to do anything amazing at this point in time... just looking to get into the water. That's all.
Will take today as a recovery day. I've got a massage scheduled at 6. That should help work out some of the muscle soreness I'm feeling. Jesus!
8:54 PM: Am home and watching Intervention with a good old glass of wine.  Somehow, it just seems wrong. Chris is out of town for work, so I've got the bachelorette thing happening here. It's me and the cats. Had toast for dinner and now some wine. *sigh*

I sleep REALLY well during rain, so no surprise that I slept in this morning and skipped my run. Thinking about running in Washington Park after work if weather cooperates.

Bike fit seemed to go very well. I've heard nothing but good about the Edwardsville bike shop and was not disappointed. I had a professional fit on this bike about three years ago, so for the most part I should have been in good shape. The fitter made a few small tweaks to my position, noting that I was stretched out a little too much. He adjusted the aero pads, tilting one of them up and in, and then brought the bars back about a quarter inch to get my arms more vertically oriented between shoulder and elbow. He then lowered the saddle about half an inch, which flattened out my back and smoothed out my pedaling stroke.

He took some measurements of the bike and now will do some research on tri bikes that have similar geometry and give me a call either late this week or next week to discuss some option[...]

Today is my Friday.  Off the rest of the week.
 
Good thing I am off too, overslept again.  Nothing like working from home in the pajamas....
This months issue of RW has a fantastic article about Deana Kastor.  I can only describe her in one word:  FIERCE.  Says a lot when people like Kara Goucher who are 5-6 years her junior are intimidated when she steps up to the starting line with them.  Also followed with a good article on the older athlete.  LOVE this thought by the orthopedist they quoted--essentially muscles are not weaker due to age as previously thought....they weaken due to DISUSE.  Only disuse (not barring underlying medical conditions)
