Training Journal 9/24-9/30

Monday, September 24- Sunday, September 30: Considering last week's emotional upheaval, this was a really tough week to make any progress on my running.  Somehow I bagged another circumnavigation of another mountain (Hood) and ran fairly consistently most of the other days.  I don't know what to say other than, I am emerging from this week stronger.  Like my legs that I break down during a long trail run, only to have them rebuild to adapt to their new demands, so too is my heart: broken down and rebuilding. 
A little self portrait for the week
Monday: 4 miles, 800 feet of climbing.  Sehome.
