I have not used it going to the gym to work on core and hip/leg strength
I have not used the time to cross train on elliptical or stair climber
I have gotten a lot of work done at my job (Very good thing)
I have used it to turn September into Beertember and Eat-lots-of-food-tember ... leaving at least 10 pounds of fat on this big horse that was not there on September 1st.
The achilles is 3 weeks into a 6 week healing process (Usually) and it feels about right. I actually re-started speed work this week and last week I managed 1 good 4 hour trail run.
Speed is a matter of perspective as I have lost @ 30 seconds from LAT and CV pace.
