Hit the track just before sunup for my running. Being my first day of the 2014 season I didn't want anything to make me start running late and rushing. We have a football game at our stadium tonight so I couldn't get to the sleds as the entrance to that shed was blocked off. Nonetheless is was good running - 3X30; 2X40+1X40; 40,30,20.
The gym was a bit of a nice surprise lifting legs. Though I didn't push the weights I have not lost all of the strength I though I might have with no leg lifting for six months. All in all it was a good first day.
I may be unrealistic but my goal is to be back on my 14'7"/4.45m poles by Reno. I know from experience it takes me about two months to change levels on strength and power and I'm starting at a pretty good place already. IF I jump in San Diego on 12/7 it will probably be on my 13'7"/4.15m series. By Belton, Texas (north of Austin) I should be on my 14'1"/4.30m and then on to my 14'7" three weeks later at Reno. Fortunately my poles overlap so I can be on a big 13'7" that is weaker than my first 14'1" and otherwise.
You have to start somewhere and for me that was today. Onward and upward. Thanks for being here! Bubba
