"How is your training going?" Obviously I think about this all of the time but I'm not used to giving a simple and short answer that only relates to results, rather than an explanation of my rationale and plan. Sam has been a physical therapist for 41 years, and my partner for nine, so we have had many such conversations but this one seemed to me to require a simple answer. My answer surprised me.
I said that I had been so busy with work that my training has been a combination of maintenance mode with short bursts forward and then back to maintenance. The result is that some lingering annoyances that I have had to work around have actually had time to heal. Knock on wood but I have not been hurt in awhile so I think this type of training has actually preconditioned me for the hard training that will follow when I return from Denver next Wednesday.
So I'm getting results in an unexpected and unplanned way. Of course I absolutely HATE this because I like to train long and consistent but this little phase has turned out to be a great benefit to me. So there!! Now don't let it happen again!! Thank you for your support! Bubba
