4 Week Update

I wish I had incredible news to report as I draw all the closer to IMF 2010, but I don't.

In the perfect world there would be no flat tires, no colds, plenty of uninterrupted sleep, unlimited hours to train, and no injuries along the way. We live in a fallen world friends and we must face these obstancles and many more.

In my particular case I made a bone head mistake of going just a bit too hard on a training run last week, which set me up for a week long set back. The knee that got scoped flaired up and made running...well...not possible. Its crazy how much sidewalk/road camber can absolutely do wonders on your kinetic chain - specifically your knees.

Thankful to report that I am now days away from mounting my 'battle wagon' and throwing my Nike Frees back on again.

With only 4 weeks left I do hope to put in some appropriate training that will bolster my confidence and add just a bit more umph to my engine.

This weekend I plan on riding 1:30 to 2 hrs on the CompuTrainer at IM watts w/ a conservative 1 hr run post. I look FWD to seeing how the knee responds and if this will generate the momentum I have been looking for. Within this workout I will be working with my prefered energy drinks for the bike; CarboPro (1st bottle) w/ Infinit for the remainder of the ride.

I plan on peaking out at 2:30 to 3 hrs on the Trek w/ a 1 hr run post. I also hope that I will be able to knock out a long run of 13 to 16 miles prior to November 6, 2010.

Stay tuned friends,
Coach L
