Log for July 8th – Training for Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 9th. Goal for the fall and winter marathon season is to break 3:15 for the first time.
- 4-mile “barefoot” recovery run – Did a 4-mile recovery run with Paxton this AM after a hard track workout last night. Ran in my Saucony Hattori’s as part of adding one “barefoot” type run per week to my training. It was a very pleasant run in Bellevue, with a steady drizzle throughout. Getting better with my form in the Hattori’s. Can really feel the different these runs have made in my calves.
- Cross Training – The wound on my hand had healed just enough to where I could slip on a lifting glove, so I decided to do P90X: Shoulders & Arms. Several of the moves hurt my hand a LOT, especially the standing shoulder presses and chair dips, but I was able to get through the whole thing. I didn’t know it, but somewhere during the workout I busted the wound back open. Still glad I did it though.
