Cautiously Optimistic

Altra Lone Peaks Neoshells (2.0) combined with Kahtoolas for the win this very icy winter!

Every time I start a blog post, I write the title first.  I wonder if I have repeated a title yet…

Anyway, on to this week!  I FINALLY got a full week of training in and was happy for all of it.  I kept a very close eye on my heart rate, which I have found over the years is one of the biggest barometers for how healthy I am.  My heart rate is largely affected by illness and fatigue, which I am sure is common.  It used to be all over the place when I worked midnights for a living.  It was spikey over the last month of illness.  This past week, it was back to steady and controllable!  That is a great sign.

I completed two gym workouts, four runs and a total of 25.4 miles and 2300 ft. of gain.  This is my biggest week since the last week of December.  I’m coming into a recovery week, then shit gets REAL!  Here is my week in pictures!
