|drowned rat riding in the rain|
This weekend started with Thursday -
I am focused, replaced Electrolytes for Chardonnay (although I am celebrating with one glass tonight - day off tomorrow) I used to HATE days off and now I am excited for 24 hours of recovery. ice bath, compression, compex, ART, laser... you name it I am doing it.
My foot is about the same but in crazy triathlon talk that means it still hurts, is manageable, and I am increasing running every week- that is the bonus. More running and NOT more pain. It's not healed but it is manageable. Hoka's for long runs ...trying to get back to Newton's for shorter runs as I like to feel the pavement. Trails are better than the road. I wear the night splint and "love" it. So all in all, cannot complain.
|Endurance House Trainer Party|
John has ramped up training with me too. After Saturdays big brick he assumed today was off.... I did the 1st part of the run and came home for him- he was dressed in winter clothes headed to the coffee shop....all it took "come on you wanna run?" And he was dressed and out in the pouring rain with Mako and me. We are eating about 10 meals a day. It's fun.... He says "whose idea was today?" love having a coach... Chris I say and off we go.
