My training since my 8-week layoff

Run down of training since my 8 weeks off for chest pain. Compiling this list I was surprised to see how patchy my training has been. I really haven't put together even two weeks of solid 40 minutes a day, 2 rest days a week training. And the Oda Filed effort after 8 weeks off, and the Komozawa race after such a bad build up look laughable now. 13 days off in September - 5 more than planned, and 6 days off already in October. Looks like I need to work on consistency.

Don't try too hard reading a plan into this. It's rehab mate, not a training plan. And measured with this yardstick it looks pretty good! Keep up the good work!

As a friend said in a coment on my blog recently (not that I've done enough about it yet): If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. There is definitely a pattern in your numbers, that is, the lack of a pattern. But actually there is a definite improvement. Just try to keep those days off as one dayoff rather than two or three. The 90 minute LSD sticks out like the proverbial dogs balls because there is nothing leading up to it. Pick an LSD day by all means and start at 50 or 60 minutes and then build 10 minutes at a time. But you are clearly making progress.
