Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

New week

leave a comment »

This week has been good so far. No complaint (beside the bad shrimp episode on Monday). Solid runs on three straight days. Legs are sore but no sharp pains (fingers crossed). Mostly running around 400m track, while dreaming of being somewhere like this:

Haven’t done much yoga lately. Only quick stretching before and after each run. Legs and back are stiff. Still can’t touch my toes. Should go back to doing it. I’m not doing any weights or other sports, so the muscles could get overused from repeated running. Yoga poses should help us runners become more flexible.

Still no plan for when my next race might be. Might sneak in a 10K soon. This year I’ve run only three races so far (10K, half, and marathon), but that’s still the most I’ve ever raced in one year. Some runners regularly do three races in a month. I am happy just going out each day and train, but the race atmosphere on Sunday mornings can be so nice.

Race or no race, I just hope to keep on running with good health. Just four weeks remain in 2009. Looking to finish off the year strong.
