After a great XC season (my boys placed 6th in the state and girls 17th) its time for ME. I put so much into my coaching that i have little testosterone left for myself from september through october. But, now that it's mid November i'm back at it. 4 miles yesterday, 6 today, maybe 8 tomorrow, then gradually work into skiing.
It is simply amazing how quickly the body de-trains itself. Little training leads to lapses in dietary regimens (called junk food binging) and its a downward spiral. Get back on the fitness train and you eat healthy and think good thoughts. the whole word needs to get on this idea.
Off and runnin'.
