Week 10/19 - 10/25

Run 14.2 miles - 2:02:00 - 8:35 pace - 127 avg HR
Ran relaxed for two hours today. A newer route version. Nice weather; windy

Run - 7.72 miles - pace: 7:35 - 139 avg HR
Decent run considering my bike crash yesterday has my legs and arms layered in a crusty road rash.
Reconsidering my athletic goals. I am still motivated, however I may be taking on too much; more than what I can handle related to my physical post-traumatic-brain-injury ability. Since my brain injury I have attempted to regain my past athletic tempo relentlessly. I have trained and raced and suffered multiple injuries (including additional car v. bike accidents). I have improved but my results have caused mostly sadness. I have high expectations. Perhaps life is evolving differently for me now. Should I succomb? Accept my limitations? Life is hard.

Bike: 8:30 - crash - no comment

1:15:00 - 9.01 miles, avg HR 127, even pace.

Travel - flying home today.


Stone Mountain, Georgia
Confederate Memorial

A sad blemish in American history. This bas-relief (worlds largest) of Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. In my opinion these Civil War moguls were traitors. Still I did run to the top of it twice today. 5 miles and nearly 1500 feet of elevation gain.

Trail  run in Georgia, 9.0 miles, 1030' elevation gain, 1:30:00. Good run and very enjoyable. A big and welcomed change from SoFla. 70 degrees. Unfortunately my Garmin kept losing its connection so I may have run longer...
