Training Update - 3 Weeks In

Training Update - 3 Weeks In

Well, I’ve just finished 3 weeks of my initial training plan. It was definitely a bit of a shock starting it up again, with two workouts a day.  My plan has me doing two of either a bike ride, run or swim. I’m doing them early in the morning so I can get them done, go about my day, and not have it interfere with family life.

I’ve been sticking to a cleaner diet, taking the supplements I talked about, and getting decent sleep. So far so good. My energy is up, just pretty beat by 9pm. I had one late night and that didn’t help the way I felt the next day. Little slip-ups like that are good for you, as they reinforce what you’re supposed to be doing and remind you of the consequences.

My right Achilles tendon is a little tender, and that’s a concern. I had Achilles tendinosis several years ago so badly I had to stop running for a long time to get it to go away. So, I’m a little nervous about it. I’ve been using T-Relief on it, with twice-daily icing after my runs. I’m not a fan of anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen for several reasons.  So I’m adding in Anti-Inflammatory formula to keep my Achilles from turning into a serious problem. You have to take this one several times a day, but it can be taken with food so that makes dosing easier.

Here’s some more information about Achilles tendon treatment.

With some good care (and luck), I won’t have to be dealing with this for the rest of my training.  Stay tuned!
