2,415.96 Miles Trained
I have been training for three weeks since being released by the urologist. I am currently at 2415. 96 miles and have raised $4248. We have since released shirts for sale and all the money raised goes towards the Olivia Caldwell Foundation. I think everyone who is going to be there will be wearing them which will hopefully give me a pick me up when I need it.
I have changed training plans to one that is less frequent but more miles per workout. Apparently the two weeks of training that I missed really set me back and it came at a horrible time because I am now in the peak of my training, swimming 2 miles at a time, running 20 miles and biking 100 miles. I feel like I lost a lot of what I had built up in the past 7 months but will just have to go a little slower.
I have been getting a lot of support since the illness/injury (still not sure what to call it). Janelle and Bella pick out a nice variety of liquids every week to keep my potassium high, from gatorade to cranberry juice, to coconut water. I have had members of my work bring me electrolyte powders which is much appreciated.
I have had a hard time getting back into the training both physically and mentally, but I do feel all of the love and the support I get every day keeps me going. We are only 6 and a half weeks out so there is not enough time to do anything but prepare for this race and make the final push for donations. We are really trying to reach $5000 so if you haven't bought your shirts or donated yet please do so.
