Hi, my name is Robin and I am addicted to running. Do I get a chip for making it this far?
Actually I am doing better today than I have all week. Saturday I took my bike off of my trainer (aka Big Red) and hit the road with a girl friend. Had to cut the ride short at mile 14 to get my oldest to work. Super bummed because it felt so good to be out enjoying some exercise pain free.
Today I put the bike back on Big Red and rode for a hard 45 minutes while wearing a sweatshirt. I was soaked and it felt good! So I feel like I am coming around.
This week my PT may give me the green light to run a few miles so we will see. All of this recent running drama has made me realize that I needed this mental and physical break. Hard to admit but there is truth to me saying that. I have been training from one race to the next since June 2005. I would say that this "little break" is due and will make me stronger and fresh for my races that will come this year.
Registration has been mailed in for the Ride with Ronald. I signed up for the 25 mile distance but I do have the option of trying for the 64 mile distance race day. I really just plan on going for as long as I can. Excited to have something to focus on and a charity ride just makes it that much better.
