Lots of little updates:
This week has been great. I was able to run a few recovery miles and took a great spin class at the gym with very little talking from the legs. Had a dreamy 90 minute massage followed by a nice glass or two of wine. What a treat.
I will admit I did everything I could to figure out if there was a somewhat local 50 mile event that I could join within the next 2 or 3 weeks. Since my training and mileage was already in place I really thought it was a great idea. I emailed several race directors in hopes they could fit just one more person in but no luck. These events are normally full within a short amount of time once registration is open. Normal running field of 300 runners, so they fill fast. It was worth a try though.
I also made an appointment with my doctor for my yearly check up and also to discuss my stomach issues during the races. This will be in late December. Likely will be referred to a Gastrologist.
Other than that I have just been planning next year’s goals and events. My running will consist of trails and I will likely put one or two road cycle events in there as well.
Very weird not to be joining the girls for a trail run this weekend. We have been doing this for so long that it will be odd to wake up tomorrow and just be at home. I have promised the boys breakfast so that will be a nice treat. At some point these legs will be moving tomorrow!!
Monday I have a program assessment at the gym. Will implement a weight/strength training program to compliment the running goals. Yoga is once again in my future. If only I could stick with it.
Thank you all for your awesome comments. Time for some more planning…….
