I am slowly recovering from the WHWR. Upon returning from Europe, I promptly got a pretty bad cold and have had some sluggish days. The last 2-3 years of longer endurance work seems to have dulled all my fast-twitch muscles. Having once run 50 flat for 400m, I seriously doubt if I could break 60 seconds right now.
I am using this recovery period to reign in my diet and to rediscover my speed and stride length. We’ll see what happens but I am hoping to drop 20 pounds by mid-September!
