Tuesday Tidbits

This morning I had an appt with the Trainer guy and we focussed on lower body stretching and strengthening - hopefully stuff that will help with injury recovery and prevention. As usual, it was time well spent.

Met up with the running group for the first time in three weeks. I did a modified run/walk workout while they were running the track. It was good to be back with them. I've just got to ease back into it. I have a few more short/easy runs planned this week. Depending on how that goes, I'm hoping to be able to salvage half-marathon training rather than scrap the race.

Going to an Oktoberfest party this weekend and need to bring something. Found a recipe for gurkensalat (cucumber salad) that I'm going to try. I have no idea if it will taste good, but I like the name.

That's all I've got for now.

  1. Glad you got to Run/walk with the group. Start chipping at the plan and you will be back on plan in no time.

  2. Bit by bit... you'll be back with the group. Be careful though, don't want to push too hard and make the injury worse... though I know you've got a good head about things. Sounds like the training session was really helpful. What stretches did he recommend?

  10. Way to start slow and ease back into it. It is funny to me that something with a name called gurkensalat could taste good. But I bet it does.

  11. Very smart. Stretching and strenthening are great for preventing injury so keep it up.

    Gurkensalat? Well, anything that can't be pronounced usually tastes really good. Have fun!
