Comeback 2013

Some of you know this if you’ve worked hard enough and long enough

Not making this up. The focus and discipline it takes to understand pace is astonishing.

 

Fastest post (July) surgery mile run so far. Didn’t particularly feel like running at a higher level, but after a mile warmup and some light stretching, decided to push a little – nothing ambitious.

Quickly realized that not exercising for the past three days provided the gift of a well-rested body. Within 30 seconds a notion – let’s shoot for a 6:20 mile.

Some of you know this if you’ve worked hard enough and long enough – you can get really good at delivering on what you say you’re gonna do.

Dear readers, it certainly is not a secret, but…

We all have mountains to climb if we look to 2014’s horizon

 

Dear readers, it certainly is not a secret, but I don’t talk about it much. Why? Not sure. Probably because it could sound boastful – when the real purpose would simply be to slay theory and reveal real life results.

So, the comeback 2013 has been put to rest. Yes, running again. Rebuilding the cardiovascular base and getting back to solid core strength.

Why? Because it’s time to move on to comeback 2014.

And for the record, comeback 2014 began mid-July 2013 (two weeks after double hernia surgery).

The long way is the shortcut.

Six weeks post operation double hernia repair update

Mostly I run alone, but there are fans in the neighborhood who appreciate the lifetime exercise commitment

 

Six weeks post operation double hernia repair update:

  • Following surgery no exercise for two weeks, then a childishly slow start to running
  • Waited a month before retuning to gym, then an infantile return to weight/reps at gym
  • Now running two miles daily
  • Gym routine at 40% weight/reps

A thought, the last day we exercise is our healthiest forever. We don’t get healthier by doing nothing.

On a health comeback, is it easier to make excuses?

When we are on a health comeback is it easier to make excuses?

Or is the notion that skipping exercise today and chalking it up to over-managing rest, considered a cop out?

Watched Jamaica’s Usain Bolt repeat as World’s Fastest Man at yesterday’s 2013 Track & Field World Championships.

And it was the first time, ever, four athletes from the same country appeared in a final.

Historic.

Inspiring.

What do we do when our Doctor gives us a clean bill of health with no restrictions?

What do we do when our Doctor gives us a clean bill of health with no restrictions?

After rejoicing, we get back to work.

The joyful, often monotonous work of getting and staying healthy.
