The Training and How it Felt
The highlights of this month include the last minute decision to run the Twin Cities 10 Miler with Natalie, two local 5Ks with my brother and finishing the month dressed as Captain Marvel for a Formula Equilibrium workout. These events bring me back to why and how I started running in the first place. It was all about staying fit and healthy and being with people. I had no goals other than to have fun.
Running continues to feel better and better. Strength training continues to be my current challenge, again only because of my serratus anterior weakness. I was on predinisone for this for about 3 weeks and tapered completely off by the 1st week in October. Although I am certain that this has been helpful in speeding my recovery from the Parsonage Turner Syndrome, there have been side effects that have been bothersome including sleep difficulties, swelling and weight gain. My sleep is starting to improve and in general I am recovering from all of the side effects.
What Did the Data Show?
My average RHR, HRV and recovery scores seem to be about the same this month compared to last.
