Training through October was limited by fatigue and soreness. Review of past 5 Octobers shows a pattern of injury or illness during that month. This year I avoided that by reducing training to 2 days per week. Despite reduced training and fitness, I lowered my times on the stairs to 14.6 seconds. Resumed training 4 days per week this week. I’ve added weighted hip thrusts and a 28kg kettle bell to training.
