I've been considering making one of these for a while, and I'm taking a brief break from my reading for class tomorrow, so this seems like as good of a time as any. I'll be posting up training information and musings on here. I want a blog that's a bit more personal than my tumblr and one that I can dedicate to my running now that I'm hopefully going to be training well for a while.
Unfortunately, I've been laid out for the past week with Peroneal Tendonitis, which is honestly the most painful running injury I've ever gotten. I could see the tendon popping over my ankle bone. So after two days of rest and 3 days of gym workouts on a stationary bike, I jogged a mile barefoot on a treadmill and was actually pain-free. It was a bit tender walking around later, but with stretching and strengthening, I should be fine to still run the Holiday Lake 50k in 3 weeks. I was hoping to run a fast race there, and not running for a week and a half (even though I have been exercising) may or may not help things. I had been building up a good base (up to 112 miles the week before this injury), so not all is lost. I think Promised Land in April will end up being my fastest 50k of the Spring though.
