This morning marked the first time since I resumed running that I actually ran faster than other people on the path. Right as I was starting my trip up to the North Trail Head, I saw a group of a dozen weekend runners on my tail. Not wanting to get caught up in that mess, I put on a little speed and toughed it out. Later I passed another pair that was on a longer run than me, but I'll take what I can get.
Endurance progress is still coming swiftly, which I enjoy. I do not expect distance to increase next week, however. I will lift weights Sunday morning. My bodyweight hit 189 this morning, so technically I could test for some of my 1/3 bodyweight kettlebell goals with the 28k kettlebell, but I am not prepared to. Either this new approach will get my strength headed back in the right direction, or when November starts I will have to trim back the running to get my strength up for Gripmas. We'll see how it goes.
