Ship’s Log–October 23, 2013


I managed to beat the weather (and my own exhaustion) to get in a 3 mile run this morning before the cold rain arrived. Post-run, I played around with my kettlebells for about 10 minutes. I’ve been thinking about getting more strength training back into my schedule, and I think some shorter sessions after modest runs might be a good place to start. I finished up with 10 minutes of easy yoga to stretch, then hit my heavy work day.

I had another hearing tonight, so there was no chance to take a class in the evening. Next week is also going to be work heavy, which is good for the money and the forced rest but bad for the training.
