Hi guys, it’s been a while.
After Coeur d’Alene 70.3 last June, I began ramping up again for the full in August… and then decided to bag it and sign up for Arizona full instead, which is in November. So I went on a long break from training.
Honestly it was a necessity for my knees and hips, which had gotten quite angry. I took almost three weeks completely off from running, and came back refreshed. While I still cannot run pain-free, I’m optimistic if I slow my runs way down, I can get through the race. I won’t be winning any awards, but I think I’ll survive without having to walk 26.2 miles.
So actual training begins now. Which means a complete shut down from me for the next couple of months; I’ll be saying no to everything and just sleeping, eating, training and working. And lots and lots of foam rolling.
