Fun afternoon yesterday and made good progress on fattening up for the weigh-in this weekend.  Had an office party at Cantler's and went over by boat.  We left  Spa Creek and cruised up the Severn (dodging all the YP boats that are clueless about anything around them) then over to Cantlers.  Our manager lined up all you can eat crabs and beer - gotta like that.  They have the best onion rings there...they're as thick as donuts!

No training for the next several days probably.  Fishing this afternoon, hunting tomorrow morning then putting in a big weekend helping Bobby.  Hardwood floors should be finished today so we'll have a couple solid days of putting down shoe moulding and that will basically be it.

Run
  • 41m 45s
  • 4.70 miles
  • 08m 53s /Mi

Tough run this morning. Just one of those days when you know in the first 10 seconds it's going to be a tough one. Form was sloppy, had a couple side stitches and I had a need for a cornfield about halfway into the run and their ain't no corn around anymore.

I'm rethinking my training plans for the next two months.  I had planned on starting focused training blocks November 1, but I think I need a little more unstructured time to just concentrate on weight training, hunting and fishing.   November and December are just going to be maintenance and strength training.  I think I'm going to start the focused training January 1st.

Had an evening meeting in Cleveland last night so I didn't get home until midnight.  I guess I'll be fueled by caffeine today instead of endorphins.  Solid pre-challenge nutrition yesterday....starved myself for breakfast then ate some kind of big cheese laden sub at Quiznos, Ben & Jerry's in the afternoon, then a big burger, fries and beer for dinner at 9pm.

Got some serious sleep the last two nights...almost 10 hours each night.  Gotta like that.  Planning on swimming after work.

Run
  • 36m 36s
  • 4.25 miles
  • 08m 37s /Mi

Watson Rd. loop. No HRM...just a brisk Sunday morning run.

Took the boat out to check out the James Island area for depth and good gunning spots.  Dumped the decoys over for an hour or so just to be sure everything was in working order then pulled them back in and chased some birds around for a while and caught a few undersized rockfish.  Got back to the dock mid morning and worked at Bobby's the rest of the day.  Spent most of the day sweeping and cleaning out the house...they're finishing the hardwood floors this week.  2 more weeks and we'll be moving them in.  It's hard to believe.  We've been down there every Saturday since July 4th, 2005.
