We had a fun hills session today - and yes, I'm being sarcastic. Hill sessions are never fun except for the company. Coach Chris had us run 6 mins up then 4 mins down them a 2 minute recovery times three. Luckily time ran out so our last rep could only be 3 mins. Three minutes felt so much more comfortable.
The other good thing about the session was that it was a little cooler. We've had the hottest days all year in the last week. Summer should be over already! I've been sweating gallons and because of my dietitians visit I've been a lot more pro-active about rehydrating. I bought some Gastrolyte tablets. They're for people who've had a bout of gastro-enteritis and are really good in helping the fluid get in without all the calories of a sports drink. I'm really happy with how I've been recovering with them.
I've been on my Coenzyme Q10 for a month now and I'm definitely feeling the benefit. I'm finding I can last the whole session and the fade I was getting is improving. My endurance is coming back - yay! I've been feeling good enough to go back to 4 sessions a week. And my distance has gone from 36 to 52k a week. I'm feeling that the money I spent on the Sports Med Doctor was well spent.
Finally, I will leave you with a picture of son Sam's leg. He got this bruise playing soccer 10 days ago. It's pretty impressive. As one of his friends said - that's a manly bruise!
