One Month In

I know, I know. It's been awhile. Don't be angry...I haven't forgotten about you!

Tri season is over and I've completed about a month of training towards my ambitious goal of 4, count 'em, 4 half marathons in 2008-2009. I'm registered for San Antonio, and I'll be signing up for Dallas soon. If I could, I would just register for all of the races now and be done with it. However, I am realistic when it comes to injury and the general chaotic twists and turns of life.

I'm up to 8 miles in my long runs, tho at the expense of my IT Band. After a weekend off and some very serious cross-training this week, I plan to run 9-10 miles....SLOWLY. That puts me about a 5k away from the goal distance, which is really exciting!

In the spirit of this transition from Tri season to running, I'll go ahead and amend the blog title. Soon I'll be posting on a number of new developments, from new shoes to PT to a new Rogue workout that looks really cool. Tata for now!

I think it's amazing how you keep going and going inspite of your ITB issues. It's really inspiring, Steph. I think it's good to take it slow when you need to (in the short-term) so that you can achieve your long-term goals. Can't wait to hear more about your adventures!
