Review 19.6

Day 200 Fall Review My running season (7th) is finally over, with a cap of successfully completing the JFK. It has been an intense roller coaster ride. I went through the highest of high and lowest of low in my runs and in my personal life to get there. My last report from Day150, was… Continue reading Review 19.6

Result came

Day 141 I haven’t written much because I have been laying low due to health. Dr called and confirmed I have Lyme Disease. It explained everything that happened to me the past month. I wanted to run but the fatigue, the irregular heartbeat, the shortness of breath, and the general unwellness made me unable to… Continue reading Result came

Reread

Day 139 I reread a blog post I wrote a few days back about why I run. At that time I thought my running career would go on indefinitely. I was young and there doesn’t seem to be why I couldn’t run except for lack of interest. Now looking back I spoke too soon. I… Continue reading Reread

Day 131 I was surprised in a bad way when my family doctor told me I have high level of cholesterol in my blood and that I should take medication to lower it. That scared the light out of me. I thought those kind of medications are for old people. My mom takes those. Wait,… Continue reading Surprised

Friday night

Day 130 I ran last night and did not feel good afterward. I was coming down with something. Last night was very hot and I might have suffered heat exhaustion. I was shivering after getting back to the office. I did not have any clothes with me other than my running shirt. I should have… Continue reading Friday night

Intensity

Day 115 I came across a training article. The concept is pretty simple and logical, but it occurs to me that it is an important truth that I have overlooked. The concept is we train in three phases. The first is foundation. We build a good foundation and hopefully the last three years, I had… Continue reading Intensity
