  1. RUN
    injured Pain and misery 6 mi

    Pretty much sums it up. Easily the worst run in two years. So woefully out of running shape after four months of injury and PT. Really ready TO BE DONE with this nonsense. To be fair, yesterday... read more

    alright rainy ride 20.13 mi 01:29 13.5mph pace

    Glad I got out and back before the spring storm that started a few hours ago. Still a very, very cold, wet ride in the showers that preceded the rain and hail (!) now covering field and roads. An... read more

    tired Slog 1800 yd 00:44 43:01 pace

    Struggled through this one from the first stroke. Felt uncoordinated and like I was fighting the water the whole time. Whew.

  4. RUN
    injured test run#2 3.08 mi 00:28 09:14 pace

    Set to do an hour long spin but then waffled back and forth for 40 minutes (!) before finally deciding to try a 3 mile run on the sore ankle instead. Pings and twinges throughout, but I kept an ea... read more

    Almost skipped this one but glad I didn't. Grateful for my arsenal of quick healthy breakfasts that I can rely on to save time so I can squeeze in my workouts before the school crunch.

    Ankle hurts, hurts after yesterday's test run. Very discouraged.. My season seems to be crumbling before my eyes. Hard to get motivated because of it, but got the cardio done with modificat... read more

  7. RUN
    injured Ankle test 2.25 mi 00:21 09:15 pace

    After almost 6 days off, I wanted to try an easy-paced short run to test the tendonitis in the ankles, mainly the right side. It's taped up and the PT put Superfeet soles in my Brooks for sup... read more

    Felt pretty strong on this one so I pushed it a little. So far so good.

    Didn't know what to expect from my battered up status, but very pleasantly surprised with this first ride of the season off the trainer! Thrilled the bike shoes and pedaling motion did not di... read more

    injured Ab Burner 00:10:00

    My PT is not a big fan of flexion-based exercises, and I knew I took a chance throwing this one back in the mix. I cannot stand the belly I developed over the 4 month running break, though, and I ... read more

      Yes, you will have those little dips into the pit of despair, but don't go in too deep. I am tempted to type out all sorts of cheerleader-type sentiments, but I will spare you -- just know that we are all here for you and cheering for every single victory you have, no matter the size. If I was with you right now I'd give your hand a real tight squeeze: you've got this, girl.

      Your words are so wonderful, my friend. Thank you for always saying just the right thing. Don't know how you do it, but it's just what I needed to hear.

  12. Well, it's a good thing I turned in a strong swim, because I've been pulled off running again, this time due to the early stages of peroneal tendonitis in the right ankle and the shades o... read more

      Thanks Em. This is by far the most I've ever had to deal with at once when it comes to sports injury. Crazy!

      I'm taking a pretty low-key, no race year too. We can do it together, culminating in the Marathon Relay :). It's actually enjoying to run just for the sake of running and not have the pressure of training.

      I agree with Nicole, maybe just doing what you can do without pain and pressure might be a good idea. I know, it is easier said than done. I always need races to motivate me, too.
