Getting Back to Full Speed

My shoulder injury from last month seems to have become a non-issue by this time. I can't quite say it is all healed up, but it is not holding me back. My knee situation is a bit more clear. The knee has not entirely healed, still sore at times and stiff at times, but it also is not holding me back from either long or intense workouts. At this point I guess I am just hoping that it finishes up healing while I continue to train and race.

Meanwhile, the training has been pretty good of late. This was the first week I have been back to hard training consistently since my injury. I got in 9.1 miles running on Saturday and 58.45 miles on the bike on Sunday. While neither was done for time, both went well at reasonable pacing. The bike was slower than I had expected, but I was trying to keep the heart rate from going too high for that particular workout and partly due to the course having more hills than I normally get to ride on this side of Austin. This week has a full schedule of workouts planned, so I will see how things go for me this week.

Take care of that knee - do what the doctor tells you on that. Trust me on this, you don't want recurring knee issues!

I work with a Triathlete - crazy that man is :)....He's training for the Ford Ironman in November - hoping to qualify for Kona...Last weekend he swam 2+ miles, biked 150 miles and ran 26 miles. He's hitting his peak training period...Just thought I'd let you see what you're in for.

Seriously, if you have any questions, I'd be happy to ask him for you, just let me know.
