I am 10 weeks in and have raised $1273.28 and am currently ahead of our goal of raising one dollar for every mile. I have trained a total of 769.59 miles. It doesn't seem like much but my body is really starting to feel the miles increasing each week. Two weeks ago I came down with another head cold, the day before we went on vacation. I only ran once that week because I didn't want a repeat of the last time I tried to train when I was sick.
I came back from vacation well rested had my fasted swim and longest run of the program so far. I was concerned because before my morning run after vacation I had a sharp pain in my foot. It kind of felt like a stress fracture, so I took another day off and was forced by Janelle to ice and roll it with a golf ball. The next run I did was with Janelle and our friend Cassie, my foot felt fine. I guess my body is just getting beat up from training ten times a week.
Ten workouts a week, that is what it takes I suppose, or hope. The idea of swimming, biking and running that much in one day still feels a little out of reach but I cannot stop. There are exactly six months until race day. We have sent out a bunch of packets and Janelle just got some good news today that we hope to announce in our next blog (fingers crossed).
Till then, please donate. My miles are slowly creeping up on our donations!!!
