PM

gym treadmill - 1 lap walk (3.2), two laps run (5.2), one walk, one run, one walk, one run, one walk.
4 walking laps, 4 running laps, 2 straight.
--
As obvious, at gym, treadmill. Looking to slowly increase over time. As I break back into running, important to keep this at no more than two sessions a week, and to keep the increases slow and manageable.

I am not going to go from 2 laps to a 1/2 marathon in a week. Steady progress over time better than pushing it too far, too fast.

A shit show week comes to a shit show end. Weighed in at 237. Thrilled. Diet has not been terrible, but not great either. Maintaining weight this week perfectly acceptable.

Fuck.

UPDATE
Just when I was getting healthy I get knocked out again. There've been a few viruses floating around my school and I seem to be catching them all this year.

Mon - sick
Tue - sick
Wed - sick, light j/m, Way of Energy wu chi 5:00
Thu - sick, light j/m, Way of Energy wu chi 5:00
--
Both the joint mobility and 5:00 of wu chi felt like herculean efforts that collapsed me.
I'll be sticking with light j/m and the way of energy work until I recover.

Friday weigh in - 234

Still sick, but recovering. I am not doing anything other joint mobility and way of energy until I am better. And once I am better I will figure out the best way to ease back into full training.

Weight is down, and that is not just from being sick. I flirted with low carb for a week or two, but realized it is stupid. There is a reason, as much weight as I drop, that I never stick with it. It is not a sustainable diet. I am going full No S. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. No seconds. No snacks. No sweets. Portion control and rebuilding good eating habits. This week, even with being sick, diet has been on point.

Finally feeling like I might really be on the upswing. Not fully better yet, but I've got some pop in my step. Today just went out for 20 minutes. Mostly walking, a little running here and there. Fresh air and the last of the evening sun.

PM

20 minute run/walk
joint mobility back sequence

----

Not sure why yesterday I thought slinging around 16s and swinging the 24 would be a nice, light, recover workout......oh well.

Today ran/walked again. Much better than Tuesday. More running and smoother. Went farther in the 20 minutes than I did last time.

Diet continues to go well. No S all the way all day. Three meals a day for me is a big deal. I've had terrible eating habits off and on for years now. Eating a consistent breakfast, lunch, and dinner has been a good thing.
Current -
Breakfast - one oatmeal packet, fruit, coffee.
Lunch - peanut butter sandwich (german bread)
Dinner - one serving of whatever we are eating. Tonight it was a bowl of soup with a few crackers and slice of the german bread.

No more than one beer in the evening.

Late AM

25 minute run/walk

---

While I will not be qualifying for the boston marathon, today's effort was pretty good for me. More stretches of longer running, and I don't have to put running in quotes. Legitimate efforts. Plus I went quite a bit further than I've been going.

Getting the legs back.

Starting to push the pace a bit. Trying to run harder, or when I get tired, run further. This is resulting in a bit longer recovery walks. Overall happy with the progress so far. Legs are getting stronger.

Afternoon

Run/walk - 11th St. and loop 29:40

---

The 11th St. and loop is one of my standard runs. It is an out and back. My first running goal is always to be able to run the whole route without stopping. Not there yet, but I was able to get the first half (all the way out) without stopping, and that part is a low grade incline. On the way back I mixed faster pace, long strides with light jogging and walking.

Felt good with this one.
---

EDIT NOTE (Mon 2/27) There is no possible way this time is accurate. I walked the whole of the loop and then did running/jogging AND walking on the way back. Today (2/27) I did not walk at all, my slow running was much more slow running than fast jogging, and each way I mixed in several harder pushes and made the run in 26:56....I am SURE I cut more than 3 minutes.

I don't know what happened with my timing this day. Maybe it was really 39?

16 kg windmill - 1/1 x 3
24kg KB 1 arm clean and press (1,2,3) x 4
16 KG goblet squats x 3 (after each ladder)

--
Adding in the windmills as warm up/mobility and the goblet squats between ladders. I was still tired today from the run yesterday. Legs a bit sore.

Just keep building up.

For right now the plan is to run twice a week, do some KB clean and press work twice a week. That is about what I can manage well at the moment. And at the moment, is what I want to do.

Diet, in terms of food is on point. In terms of beer....not as on point.

PM

Run/walk - 25 minutes - essentially this has turned into a slow run with some walking breaks. Much more running than walking and the walking is just to recover a bit before running again.

--

Fighting the urge to increase the distance or frequency too quickly. I've got to keep the long term goal in mind. Nothing I do this month is going to get me ready for a marathon. But if I push it too much, then I can derail any progress.

Focusing on just getting out, putting in some work, and getting home to recover until the next time. 2 runs a week and some KB work is more than enough right now.

23:00 run

--
A bit of a milestone....yes it was slow, but this was a legitimate "run" not "run/walk." Went 23 minutes just running (slowly). First time since I've started that I can say I did not do any walk breaks. And even without the breaks, I was able to speed it up for the end length, and then didn't walk. Jogged it back to home.

warm up - 16kg windmill x 2/2; 16kg goblet squat x 3 - x 3
(double 16kg KB clean and press (2/3/5); 24 kg goblet squat x 1) - x 3

untimed run - 11th street and loop
---

Nice little milestone today. Made my 11th street and loop route without stopping/walking. Ran slow, but still did it. At the end ran harder for the end park length and then after a short recovery slow jog ran it harder home.

So this is step one on the road back to running. Next step is to own this route. Be able to run it anytime and every time I go out for a run.

Then of course, work on decreasing the time.

I've been out of town for several days.

While gone

Mon Feb 20 - KB Work (was actually in town this session and I forgot to log it)
Fri Feb 24 - hotel treadmill run, 20 minutes
Sat Feb 25 - hotel treadmill run, 20 minutes

---
This hotel fitness room was ridiculous. The room must have been 85 degrees, completely humid from the indoor pool, and each treadmill was under a light. It was like running in a never ending sauna. Disgustingly hard. Every minute was hell.
