In Honor of Army Staff Sgt. Kerry W. Frith

 This training session is dedicated to Army Staff Sgt. Kerry W. Frith who was assigned to the  160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment          ” Night Stalkers” and lost his life in 2002. In my post about pain management I mention bonkering. I saw this cartoon by Susan Lacks and N.C.Winters in the  magazine “Competitor” August 2011 page 34 which really captures some of the feelings of a runner bonkering. It is not a nice place to be. Yesterday I did a 4 mile walk over various terrain with a 35 lb pack and then completed a TRX1 – 5/6 week routine. Will be evaluating whether to move up to the 7/8 week routine next week. Today I did a 4 mile paddle interval workout. For this workout I increased the interval strokes – 3rep/150 strokes /30 stroke rest, 4rep/300 stroke/ 60 stroke rest,  and then 3rep/150 stroke/ 30 stroke rest. Covered the 4 miles in 46 minutes which gave me an average speed of 5.2 MPH. Staff Sgt. Frith’s family included three children. Please consider a donation to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation to help provide a college education to his children.
