It's tough to do! I did 5 squats very slowly today but maybe not slow enough. It took me 7 minutes.
In the latest podcast from Ben Greenfield, his guest Jay Schroeder discusses Russian training techniques.
How putting your muscles under stress at a very slow rate trains them much better for when they are called upon in an endurance event. Also how short, intense workouts are much better than long strung out workouts. Very interesting stuff. He says the Russians didn't invent this stuff, they perfected it.
It's still swollen (just a little bit) and sore after a run but not so bad. I've been putting in 35 to 45 miles a week for the last month since I got back to running again after the broken little toe on my left foot. Mostly quality runs up until I fell two weeks ago and injured my knee!
What was it Roseanne Rosannadanna said?
On runs lately I find myself favoring my left foot at times but I'm feeling pretty good going into this weekends Austin Marathon. This Marathon has been in my bucket list for at least 15 years. Finally getting there!
And the best part? I will be sharing the experience with good friends. The Doc!, my good friend Lalo. And his wife!
Will I PR? Not holding my breath, but I will definitely have a good time. I'm going to make sure of that.
