Been really bad about keeping a log. In July I did run the Wharf-to-Wharf, a 10K starting in Santa Cruz and finishing in Capitola. In mid August I did a a three day trip in the Sierra to climb Red and White mountain. Besides getting rained on and nearly going hypothermic it was a successful trip. My training has been pretty random and inconsistent with some hiking, some rowing, some swimming, some olympic lifting, and some body weight met cons over the last three months.

This week I am starting the Catalyst Athletics 4 week Starter Program as preparation for the 9 week Strength by Feel cycle.

Wednesday 10/3/12

Have to move Wednesday's workout to Thursday and skip the Thursday work-out. My wife had hernia surgery. I also go a some bad news regarding my own health today. I did an echo cardiogram recently since my Endo heard a heart murmur. Apparently I have a leaky valve also known a mitral regurgitation. I don't think it's that bad since I show no symptoms but we'll see what the cardiologist has to say. Yet another doctor in the rotation. Turning 50 has turned out to be a bitch.
