April showers...

April showers bring May flowers as does April training bring May shape. As I am back training after a long lay off with injury it seems like a good time for a fresh beginning.

New ideas and new direction brings a new website.

Calve raises and then some

Through the process of daily calves raises and maintaining the rhythm of training through the bike I am now back running keeping the same workout schedule but at a much reduced pace working the mechanics of the running stride with the running and working through the gnarly parts with the calves raises.
Looking forward to spring!
If it is any indication I am now walking down stairs under my own strength, no hand rail required:-)

Goodbye indoor season

The transition to running did not go as smooth as hoped, irritated the achilles with some stretching and mobility work. So it is back on the bike doing the intervals and tempo work in the standing position and the recovery work in the seated position.

The achilles improves a little each day on the bike so we are "keeping calm and training on"as they say and look forward to starting the outdoor track season in May.

I had hoped to do the masters mile this weekend but I think that would be pushing things just a little at this point and due too the set backs there will be no spring marathon.
