Laid Up and Blogging

i'm laying around recovering. although i heard each day you should feel considerably better, today seems a lot like yesterday. i can just barely get up off the couch on my own. it's one of those things where you can do it, but it hurts, so i probably shouldn't. anyway, being couch/bed ridden this gives me some time to blog.

the last few weeks have also given me some time to reflect about my own training and how i coach other athletes (more to come on this one). on vacation i reread nutrition periodization for endurance athletes, and started reading daniel's running formula.

karl meltzer and scott mason ( have posted some awesome trail running tip videos on "crashing is part of the deal". true dat.

karl also just did an interview with endurance planet, good stuff:

  • Play in Windows Media Karl MeltzerKarl Meltzer
  • Play in RealPlayer
  • Play mp3 stream
  • Direct link to mp3 file

  • also check out the new montrail newsletter.

    Matt, have you seen Patrick Russell's blog?

    He's more of a straight-up ultramarathoner (like me) rather than an all-around adventure warrior (like you), but he's recovering from hernia surgery as well!

    Recover well Matt and sounds good to take the time to tweak up ur future Always good to plan, DO and Review!!

    90-120 day cycles is a good gauge to check in on ur results...for any area of your life, unfortunately in todays society most people plan more for a 2 week vacation then they do for their life.
