Below is a summary of my training and habits progress from the previous week.

Key Goal Countdown + Objectives

  • 36 weeks until Cloudland Canyon 50 Miler (12/04/22)

Training & Health Wins + Losses


  • Successful finish of the Flipper Bend Half Marathon trail race on Saturday 03/26
  • 29 miles of running put in without any joint/muscle discomfort 


  • Came into the week beaten down after a weekend with visitors in town (too much drinking, eating out, etc). Overall recovery and energy was very poor heading into the week.
  • 1x lifting workout
    • The Saturday half marathon combined with me entering the week beaten up from weekend visitors resulted in a failure from a lifting perspective.
  • Healthy habits were poor this week and I did not hit my targets essentially across the board.
    • Really need to focus this upcoming week on my foundations (healthy habits + lifting).

  2. Hi Pierre,Great and informative article! Love this site!If you have a chance, you may want to check out Danielsson Reels from Sweden – they do no market or advertise as to keep their cost down and they do not sell in stores – all direct from the manufacturer – but they have a cult following in Scandinavia for very good reason 🙂Their H5D series are incredible saltwater reels that stop anything from GT to bluefin tuna to billfish – well worth checking out and they will last a lifetime!Hi Zak,Thanks for your comment. I am glad that you’re finding our articles informative.I’ve had my eye on Danielsson for a while. They look like amazing reels. Unfortunately, I have had no real experience with them, so it is hard for me to include them in an article. As you would know, saltwater reels need to offer so much more than standard freshwater specific reels.Do you fish with one of the H5Ds?Great article. While we haven’t found geodes, we do have a lot of other stuff we’ve picked up…a yard and house full of it! We often wonder if these treasures are worth anything besides to us. This was helpful, thanks!
