Clearing My Pipes

I got my first set back in my Asylum career, I got the allergy bug earlier this week. With stuffy nose, sore throat, water eyes and body aches makes for restless nights. I’ve gone through several over the counter drugs but none seem to get me back to my old self. We’ve had some beautiful summer weather and I get stuck inside laying in bed. 

I pretty much rested all week and I’m starting to feel better now. I thought that I might have lost my strength but I was able to do 6 dead hang pull-ups in a row. One better than my previous best. Decided to clear my windpipes and see if I can best last week’s 5 mile run time. 

Was glad to beat my previous best by over a minute and keep my 5 mile run under 43 minutes. Looks like I’m ready to hit asylum come Monday and get back on track. Yes, that’s my folding bike in the background.

I got a feeling that I’m going to be doing my longest run this summer.

Day 12 – Asylum Hybrid – Off-Day Stretch

Opted to run a 5 mile trail run today instead. It felt good to revisit an old favorite trail route 10+ pounds lighter. It almost felt like I wasn’t running but just watching. My body was ok with an uptempo pace at times. All credit goes to Asylum and blasting Megadeth’s Rust In Peace in the headphones for running 5 miles under 44 minutes.

Suffer in the gym, reap the rewards on the field.
