That's right I've been done with CX for one whole week. I did NOTHING for 7 days except a few 12 oz curls. Fat time is over, now its time to hit Weight Watchers for Men & work some of those long forgotten muscles.
For me that means running. "You wouldn't believe it but I can run like the wind blows" well sorta of. The next few weeks will see me putting in a few miles on my running shoes & maybe a few on my trail shoes as well. With zero miles on the bike, well maybe a few on the SS MTB for fun.
This year I didn't do as much cross training as normal & I felt it in CX. This year I think I'll do a little more alternate training methods to keep me more well rounded. I'm even hoping to get in 3 months of weight training starting in January. Build up a little power base, maybe swap a pound or two of fat for a couple pounds of muscle. I'm real close to my weight goal of sub 150 & I think the weight room will be a nice trade off.
Last night was 3.7miles in 27:35, that's 7:27/mile. Average HR 141 max 157. Not too shabby first run out the door.
