Training Week 8/6

Drinking for the week 8/6 to 8/12 was strong and steady, like the beer consumed. Having just completed the Canadian Death Race my body was not functioning, which meant that it was time to sample not trails and river rapids of the Canadian Rockies but brewpubs and beers.

Started in Banff at Banff Ave. Brewing (very good IPA and Black Pils, not to mention an outstanding Cream Ale that was more like an ESB), continued in Canmore at Grizzly Paw Brewpub (IPA was solid and very drinkable), and finished up thousands of miles away at the Hoffbrau Haus in New York City, where I was for my little brother’s bachelor party.

I did manage to keep the streak alive with the following. Body was just shattered, legs malfunctioning, which was a shame on one hand because Banff, Alberta CANADA has some amazing trails.

Goal for the coming week will be to continue with recovery, get back to stretching, and hope to get back some zing in the legs by week’s end. If none of this happens, so be it!
