RKC Training Log: Week 9

I am now officially 2 weeks out from the certification and long overdue for a good week of training.  The mid-week workouts were a little shaky this week, but I finally strung together three straight days of quality workouts this weekend.

I’ve been so cautious with training due to the back injury the last few weeks it was nice to finally reach a point where I could go hard and not worry about reinjuring myself.  It did become painfully obvious that my conditioning has suffered a bit, but all I can do is work hard this week and hopefully get myself in a position to survive the cert weekend
