Sick

It had to happen, I guess. On Monday I came down with a nasty cold and my only exertion have been the crawl between the bed and the couch. It looks like it's loosing it's grip though, so I hope I can start back up again on Friday.

Of course, as always after periods of illness, I have to start nice and slow - let the body ease into it again and prevent a relapse. Naturally I had to make some changes to my training this month, but in the end it shouldn't make all that much of a difference.

I had a very good period of training leading up to this period of sickness, so I needed a few easy days anyways. In the end, this might have been a good thing.

Happy New Year!

Well, that's a wrap.

December ended up being a super month, with regards to training. The quality and volume both ended up as planned, with the body feeling good. Slightly run-down, but I feel I'm balancing it all fairly well still.

As for January - more of the same. Much more.... Most likely my highest volume month, with 4 high intensity sessions per week (2 I-3, 1 I-4 and 1 I-5). The first two weeks of January will be very hard, so I've got a mixed outlook on the next 12-14 days or so. Sort of a mix between excitement and dread. The 3rd week is fairly easy, to absorb the previous training, while the 4th week is pretty normal.

Hope everyone had a great 2006 and ready to rock in 2007. As always - GI GASS!
