    Hi, my name is withheld, and I'm far too good at resting. At least now that I have a messed up shoulder to go along with my plantar fasciitis.

    Competed in an 8K yesterday. Second year in a row competing in this particular race. I finished in the EXACT same time as I did last year (36:36). To the second. Due to suboptimal conditions (throughout training) my goal was to finish in about the same time as last year, and I guess my body took that very literally. I don't think I could do that again if I tried.

    Hi, my name is Bob, and for all that I do, I think rest is a dirty word. I don't like the fact that I'm resting today.

    For the record, I also hate hearing that I should slow down and not do so much.

    Got an email from Kal-Haven trail run race organizers asking me when I will finish.

    This is a 33.5 mile run that starts at 7 AM and the cutoff is at 3 PM. With that in mind, I'm shooting for a 12:30/mile, or 2 PM finish.

    Again the with resting thing. I thought spin class might be OK, so I took a couple.. back was a little worse the day or 2 after. I have an appointment with a chiropractor on Monday. My back would be fine if I didn't want to exercise, because it's not that painful. Frustrating.

    I vaguely recall something about a distance runner on this site...

    13 marathons later, and I've had no problems with my kidneys. With Charlevoix, Marquette, and Detroit happening later this year, plus the marathon portion of the Michigan Titanium full duathlon... I'll be just fine.

    8 days until the Kal-Haven trail run. Getting nervous... 33.5 miles, when I finish, will be the furthest I have ever run.

    Kal-Haven trail run, a 33.5 mile ultra-marathon: Finished in 7:20:09.

    I did it. I finished an ultra.

    Thank you. The last 6-7 miles... I had to dig as deep as I could.

    Thank you! Now I need to rest and recover. Luckily, between yoga, Pilates, and the bike, that won't be too difficult.

    But for now, I'm going to crack open a bottle of Saugatuck Bonfire Brown Ale and celebrate.

    Now going on 6 weeks of rest. During my last chiropractor trip, he didn't do the adjustment on the same side he's done before, so that's a good sign, right? It's felt pretty good for the past 3-4 days. Fingers crossed. I really, really miss exercise.

    I'd give it a few more days, then go.

    And after a week of relaxing and eating, it's time to get up and start training again.

    Next big challenges: Michigan Titanium full distance duathlon on August 20, and the Hungerford 50 (second attempt) on September 30.

    For the first time ever, I used the gym at the Hilton I stayed at this past week. Did some cardio on the bike, then hit the weight machines - felt pretty good. Woke up the next morning, and I felt like an 80 year-old man. Moving my upper body was torture.

    I've had a week of doing nothing except eating and recovering from my ultra. Time to start working out again. Not sure if I'll return to running this week, but I do think it's time to get back on the bike, plus do my yoga and Pilates workouts.

    Must.emphasize.both.
    By the way, 5mn_major, I remember when I trained for my first marathon. People kept telling me "oh, you can eat whatever you want, and you'll just burn it right off." As much as I like softball sized muffins from coffee shops, Nutella, and a few other treats, I know I can't have those things every day. When I worked at Sam's Club, when I saw a "reject cake" sitting in the break room, I let it go, because 1) I didn't plan on it, and two, it was no special occasion.

    Furthermore, with all the endurance stuff I do, I know that most of my carbohydrates have to be smart carbohydrates. Mostly fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The reason why I stopped mostly with the bagels is that they're not smart carbs.

    And as I start training for the Hungerford 50 and as Michigan Titanium training kicks up, not only will I have to add more protein and healthy fat, I'll have to monitor the carbs to see exactly what I'm eating.

    Not the greatest, but things could be a whole lot worse. I can work on this, considering how my weight yo-yo'd in the past month with the flu, and seeing as how I haven't effectively exercised regularly in a few months. Now that the weather has broken and warmed up, I can get outside and get this under control. It's just a matter of sticking with it.

    That's my biggest impediment. With my indoor soccer season finally over, I can get back to regular exercise. I know it sounds crazy, but playing goalie for an indoor team almost always left me needing a week to recover from the minor injuries or bumps and bruises I would get from soccer. I could start again by around Monday or Tuesday, but I didn't want to show up to soccer still sore from getting back into it again. Team wouldn't like that.

    But getting sick is probably the worst thing. It drains your energy, it screws with your respiration, and your routine is thrown off. I'm hoping this gunk is out of my system by Monday when I plan to start up again in earnest.
