Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Another race pops up on 11 Mar: Thai-Japan mini (11 km), at National Stadium. Compared to NIDA mini (10 km), this one requires a longer drive and costs slightly more. But the organizer seems well prepared, with a functioning website and essential information. NIDA doesn’t have much regarding the race details so far. Still undecided, but I will definite do one of them. Four weeks to go.

Currently experimenting with a new training program (low volume, high intensity) and diet (low carb, high fat and protein) at the same time. My weekly mileage has dropped by about 50%. There were three hard workouts last week, all in which I came up short. Will keep working hard in the remaining weeks and see how it goes. Sometimes life is just about figuring out what works.

Over the weekend there were some great racing action. Lagat’s 5000m run was good stuff.
