Atacama Crossing (Chile) 2011
Well, training is now picking up momentum quite rapidly. I recently turned 40 a fortnight ago and just ahead of this had a complete physical performed. The tests turned out fine and the doctors told me I was fit to continue running long courses. That has been a tremendous boost psychologically. July and August have been particularly good months with me averaging 60-70km a week on my runs, interspersed with strength training at the local gym, more so for the back and shoulders. I am quite happy with the way this has progressed so far. In September, I plan to run/fast-walk an average of 80km a week, with weights on my back. This is also the month to reengage with yoga for the lower back and spine. I am just chalking out a tentative plan for September that will see me working out five-six days a week intensively. Also, in the past the routine has been pretty dull - just running loops in the park or on the treadmill. This should see a variant soon, sort of spice the run a bit, if you will. More later. S
