…Through the virtue of training, Enlighten both body and soul — Morihei Sensei

Back from Augusta. . .

I survived the 2011 Augusta 70.3 Half Ironman.  Race report to follow.  After the triathlon, I (wisely) stayed over one additional night from Sunday to Monday.  Took my time getting ready Monday morning, and was on the road about 9:30am.  Got back in town around noon, unloaded my bags, and was checking on a job before 1 pm.  Got some work done, ran two practices that evening, ate dinner, and crashed

Monday was a complete day off from training.  I occupied my mind on the bike, wondering what I should, shouldn’t, if  I should train, this week.  At some point Sunday evening, I decided to take Monday off (sort of).  Light swim Tuesday.  That’s as far as it went, before I passed out Sunday evening.

Today is Thursday.  I had a light swim today.  My thighs still feel sluggish.  That certain, clear overtrained, drained feeling.

Overall, I’m recovering fine.  Yesterday, my body temperature was doing weird things.

Would like to hit the climbing gym tomorrow, and hit the weights this weekend.  We’ll see.

Morning Weight

Each morning I wake
The weight of the day down presses.
Coffee and out the door.
At the red light I see. . .
The Sun Rise
. . .The weight lifts.

Easy Reading

I read in my easy chair,
The Princess reads curled on the couch.
For at least a moment,
All is well in the world.
