In 2014 I vow to race less and with fewer injuries. Going to set 2 lofty goals only: 1/2 marathon in under 2 hours and full marathon in under 5 hours.

    alright Rehabing my broken butt

      Just get out there w/ some good music, forget about pace & enjoy the run or pretend :). Break it up to make it 3 miles of relaxing super easy, 3 miles smooth, focusing on being super relaxed, running tall. stop & rest, then 3 miles of on/off as moderate/ez, then 3 either easy jog/walk or progressively faster if you are feeling good. That way you are only running 4 very different 3 milers and if injured S.T.O.P :)

      The roads around downtown are pretty clear and dry with no snow. You could do Y to the Zoo loop a couple of times to get those miles in to avoid the crap and be safe still. I have 10 on the schedule and was thinking Johnson Park to the Zoo if the roads are decent that way, but not till later in the day.

      I'm with you on hating to have things checked out until I'm sure. I will say, tho, sometimes we should anyway. Great ride.

      I agree. Save the money and wait it out. Lots of injuries heal up in just a few short says. You'll do great just listening to the pain if it shows. Nice spin!

      Called the podiatrist this morning and the nurse said if it was a fracture it would hurt a lot today. I barely feel anything. Going to try running tomorrow and they said I could come in Wednesday if it feels worse.

      Yep. I get it. I currently have a cat who is obese and always has been and have another one who's anorexic with hypothyroidism (is on medication), eats ferociously and can't gain an ounce. Did I just compare you to a cat?? Keep lowering the carbs and increasing totally unprocessed whole foods and it should make a difference. Also consider doing more long, low aerobic zone workouts run, bike or swim to increase fat burning efficiency on your light/easy days.
