The Week in Review or Crash Willis Keeps Rolling

On Thursday, I snapped my handle bars into pieces during a road ride. The worst part was I was holding onto said handle bars during their impact with the pavement. Sigh. More blood. More bandages. But the workouts remained on point despite some lingering neck pain.

Here is the Week that was in terms of training:

Monday - Brisk Walk, Yoga, 8 minutes abs
Tuesday - 5 mile hike
Wednesday - Brisk Walk, Yoga, 8 minute abs
Thursday - 6.5 mile run
Friday - Mountain bike ride
Saturday - Brisk Walk, Yoga, 8 minute abs
Sunday - 6.2 mile road race

Whoa. Shit is getting real. I'm less than two weeks away from running 26.2 miles. I am also less than two weeks away from my first proper no computer/no Kenzai vacation in...shiiiiit...like four years.

Not sure which makes me more nervous! Yeah...it's the run.

    Exciting times! Glad to hear you came away from that relatively unscathed.

      Thursday you crash the bike with you on it and Friday you are back on it (or another bike) for a 6.5 mile ride. Amazing! Glad you have some vacay coming up. They are highly recommended!

        BRO - as the runs get longer, keep it together

        the idea is to have a strong fun marathon - not die trying

        Yoga Yes

        Go Team go

          Dude, you have truly earned the vacay! Literally, paying for it in blood. Stay safe and uninjured so we can physically raise a glass post-marathon!

            Ouch man - hope you're OK. Good luck with the running prep - you got this.

              Man that is a tough spot to snap a bike. Biking is supposed to be a NON-IMPACT alt cardio option, you know that right?

                Yo! I was in Portland late Aug for an unexpected afternoon... Rising Tide, Lone Pine, Chaga Stout, ring a bell? Ha! I'll be back Oct 8/9 and hope to cross paths if possible... also hope to catch a Sept. K-Train here so hope to connect pronto. Thanks Ward - all the best on that Run buddy as you're going to rock it and I look forward to hearing.

                  @All - Thank you!
                  @Paul - I live two blocks from Rising Tide! I do push-ups in their parking lot all the time....or something like that. Hit me up.
