    effort 2/5
good Mid-week tracking 04:20

Trying to keep track of how much time is spent weekly on strengthening/stretching/maintenance activities, figuring with about 30 less miles / week in the "off-season", that provides the opportunity for ~4 more hours of such work. Would like to try and hit that goal regularly.
Monday: Poseidon general strength, Bia hip, foam rolling (night)
Tuesday: Atlas core, Achilles lower leg (lunch)
Wednesday: Athena leg x2, Apollo dynamic core, AIS legs, Artemis minimalist (lunch), AIS lower legs (lunch)
Thursday: Poseidon, foam rolling (evening)
Friday: Bia, Atlas, Achilles
The Apollo routine was new this morning, adds the Swiss ball to some typical core exercises like planks, hip thrusts, etc. - tougher routine but mostly doable, a bit of work to do.

    looks like a good routine, which might kill me if I tried it!

    Time to invest in a kettlebell! Good plan, Greg. I'm going to hold you to it. Skip a day and I'll call you bad names.

    THIS is my goal for the next training cycle. Strengthening/stretching/maintenance to get stronger/faster/stay injury free. Thanks for driving this message home in your own training Greg. I'm glad I haven't had to learn it the hard way!

    With all this core stuff, do you have a six-pack? (photographic proof required).

    @Stefan - no six pack intended - mostly working deep/inner/lower core muscles, a lot of focus actually on glutes and hamstrings.

    You're doing an excellent job developing and maintaining core strength. Those focal workouts you pointed me to were intriguing as staying injury free is one of my top priorities! It's really tough to stick to these routines I find as a preventative measure and seem to only take up the challenge when something starts to go awry. Your discipline is inspirational!

    Thanks all - @Brie, when things have gone awry for two winters in a row like they have for me, the discipline is a bit easier to maintain.
