What a Weekend!

Well, I've had a rather busy weekend this week and the mere fact I'm still awake at the moment is quite shocking. This week saw me rack up 50.4km in mileage, a volume I have not seen since 2001.  I'm quite amazed at the fact that I managed to churn out the 50km this week and stay injury free, with no real concerns health wise.  I am continuing my stretching, physio, strengthening and SMR routines every day and I feel these are playing a large part in allowing me to remain healthy.

Yesterday I had my second hard workout of the week at Weldon Park, a workout that kicked off with 2 games of british bulldog (of which I was the last man standing in the second round). The workout was challenging, but I kept it at a decent pace in anticipation of what was to come the next day.

The next day, today, was my first race in 7 years and probably my first 10km road race in 10 years. I had very little nerves stepping up to the line and I stuck to my race plan and surprised myself.  More on that in an upcoming blog post.

So now I get to power down for a few hours, recount the previous week's workouts and gear up for an hour of yoga. Cheers!
