It seems like the past weeks have flown by. Last weekend Jaime was in South Dakota for a class on a new technique to align your pelvis. She returned on Monday, and I flew to Virginia on Monday to visit the plant where Fruit2Day is made. The trip was good (and quick). I always love to watch manufacturing actually happen. The automation, and coordination of so many different pieces of equipment is simply amazing. Needless to say, it was nice to get back home.
It is pretty typical to have your training somewhat interrupted by travel, and this week was no exception for me. I did manage to get in all 4 runs that were scheduled. 2 runs of 2 miles (easy/recovery runs), one tempo run of 6 miles with 4 tempo in the middle, and one long run of 7 miles. All of the runs felt good despite the travel. I'm giving all of the credit to the Skins recovery/travel socks. They lived up to the billing. My ankles are usually non-existent after flying due to the massive amount of swelling. After this trip, they were like I never got on a plane. Other than the runs, I got in 2 bike rides on the trainer, one weight session at the house, and 1 swim. Next week will be better I hope.
The other exciting part of the past 2 weeks has been the expansion of Colorado Injury Treatment Center. This is the physical therapy/massage therapy/chiropractics clinic that my wife and I own. We have expanded into the suite next door to our existing suite. The wall was knocked down, so we are moved next door until the workers finish up our former space, then we will be in the combined suite. It is exciting to have a lot more space and have the opportunity to build the business up from where it is. We've got lots of ideas of the direction we'd like to go, so I'll keep you updated on how things progress.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
