Redemption on those deadlifts! You earned your rest, now go and enjoy hibernation for a week or so!

Awesome deadlifting mate... very strong

I agree with taking the time off, rest and recuperate then smash it when you get back. How long till the 5k run now ??

Sleep and rest are good.

When I was in the Army Val, It was hard to balance serious running, and weightlifting. The combined effect was a serious CNS hit. I ended up not training lower body as hard with weights, and concentrating on running a lot more.

I was putting in about 85 miles a month running, but like you, I started to have some issues with my ankles, and for me all of my joints. I cut back on my running to about 40 miles a month, and worked a little more weights for more legs.

Eventually I started riding my bike a lot more seriously, and that was a major part of my leg training. I did lots of hill work, and sprinting. I really miss riding my bike like that. I need to take it off the hooks in the garage and go ride it.

You'll find your balance.

Those deadlifts went up with ease, and on minimal rest, because somebody else was waiting for the platform. I bet I had another 20 pounds in me. Those were 5 reps too, not 5 singles, as you had once suggested. I still might try that.

Hibernation is coming. I must eat too. I have one last possible workout reserved for BTB and jslep if the upcoming weekend will allow. Otherwise I'm down to two or three 5K trainers and the actual run next weekend. I can't wait for this to be over though.

Thank you, Carl. I felt really good on the deads. Too bad my OHP sucks. It will come back though. Nothing a little RandR won't cure. The 5k is next Saturday, March 5. I'm just a week out now.

Thank you, gl. I'll find my balance for sure. I hope I've been clear that right now I training for a single event. When that event is over, I'll scale back to maintenance. I'm particularly eager to try out some other things for conditioning. As long as there's still snow and ice on the ground now is the perfect time to give the eliptical machine a fair trial. There's plenty of stationary bikes (both upright and recumbant) at the YMCA too. Once spring hits, I can walk to work. I love doing hill sprints too. There's a hill not too far from me that I was running a few times a week last spring. I can't wait to get back to that. I just want to stay fairly conditioned so that if I ever want to do another 5K, then I can whip myself into shape lickety-split.

I have one page left in my lifting notebook. I was going to fill it up Thursday night, but decided to leave it open in case I get a chance to hang and bang with BTB and jslep this weekend. If it happens, great. If not, meh.

I felt really good Thursday night, so I grabbed my runners and partook of some training.

Thursday, 2/24/11

5K training
50 laps around the running track (2.75 miles more or less). No official time, but according to the analog clock on the wall, it was about 28 minutes (give or take). I ended very strong. My last two laps were as close to sprinting as I could get. I was sharing the track with an elderly Vietnamese couple. They must have thought I was loco, or whatever loco is in their native language. Looking very good for a 35 minute 5K. I might even try to push for 30 minutes.

Sunday, 2/27/11
Ran 2.75 miles in 27:33. I walked the remaining 5K distance as a cool down. My total time was 32:33. Looks like I'm capable of a sub 35 minute time. I'm going to shoot for 30 minutes.

Wednesday, 3/2/11

Final 5K training session. I ran 3 miles in 31:04.77. Not too bad for an old fart. First 5K and all. 60 hours from now I'll be able to kick off my running shoes and I'll never have to put them on again. At least that's what I like to tell myself.

Forecast for Saturday is highs in the mid to upper 20's. Not at all what I'd hoped for. Two weeks ago it was in the 50's, and I was starting to see patches of grass in the yard. Six inches of snow later, and "Welcome back, Winter."
