Trail Run
8.5 Miles on the trail, 2 hours

Notes: Oh man, I really blew it on this one. Was still feeling pretty sore from the workouts all week and am still battling a bit of the cold. Went to an unknown trail and it was a killer. The first 2-3 miles were incredibly difficult, very steep and the trails were all boulders and loose rock. I pretty much ended up fast hiking about 75% of the uphill because I simply couldn’t run it. The run down was really fun, but I ended up taking the wrong trail and got lost, had to double-back and find my connecting trail. Overall was pretty exhausted with the effort and it took me over 2 hours to complete

Notes: Still feeling a sick and wasn’t really in it mentally, still managed to PR my pull-ups but everything else was somewhat disappointing.

Deadlifts @ 225#

20 min Barefoot Running

Notes: Still no worries with the achilles. Feet felt good, need to adjust the straps on my running sandals.

Training – 1/8/2013

Training Log: 01/08/2013
For time:
1K Row
50 Thrusters @ 45#
30 Pull-ups
Time: 7:50
Run 30 minutes @ Easy pace

Notes: So I was mentally prepared today, I decided beforehand that I would just go balls to the wall on this one since I had about four days rest prior. The row went better than expected as that is usually my weak point, I think it was around 3:30 or so. I never put down the bar on the thrusters and I think I broke it down into 25-10,5,5,5 with a short rest. Pull ups were rough as my grip was leaving me. My body felt like it was exploding in hurt afterwards, was on the ground in the pain cave for a couple minutes. I finally got up but was dizzy and still in pain and went outside and started puking my guts out. The only comparison I have for this feeling was Fran, but I feel like this was worse. However I was really proud with my time as I set a goal of sub-8 beforehand. The run at night felt fantastic, slow and no trouble from the Achilles.

Training – 1/3/2013

Notes: The two AMRAPs went pretty well, I was able to keep a solid pace. I think the only real trouble I had started after about 50 pushups, I had to start doing 5 + 5 as I just didn’t have the strength to do them unbroken.
