Happy Sunday! I wanted to report that I had a really great race yesterday. I ended up winning overall, which was definitely my goal. I got 2nd my first year competing in this race and 4th last year. I trained more for this race than any previous, and it really paid off. One girl did almost catch me (she finished like, half a second behind me). I didn't have much left but I had just enough to not let her get me!

I celebrated with a beer flight at a local brewpub. Then went and played football and had a wedding last night. Needless to say, I am completely wiped out today. And dancing last night was hard b/c my legs were extremely sore. The link below are the results from the race. I will try to write up a RR today or tomorrow. Now I need to study for my chemistry midterm that is on Tuesday...so tired.

First workout back after failed HIM attempt last Sunday--a short swim (1300yds). It felt pretty good, but I did take a lot of harassment from the masters coach, who was at the pool getting his own lunchtime workout in. Ankle didn't hurt, but I did some pulling and very easy push offs the wall.

Another short swim for me today. Honestly, I'm starting to get back that feeling for going long. I only had time for a 30' swim. When I had to get out, I was bummed. All things pointing to recovery?

Foot/ankle still in brace with RICE instructions, but it is feeling much better of late, so maybe I'll try biking at some point soon. Just maybe though. :P

A little over a 5 mile run this morning. Started out nice and easy and picked it up a little bit at the end (not much). This was my first non-race run in two weeks so just wanted to get my legs moving. Will try to do something with some speed over the weekend.

Got in two good swim this week, two short bike sessions and a TON of strength training and core work.  Celebrated by getting three (!!!) facet injections yesterday. 

Taking a couple of days off to let the medicine do its magic, then back at it next week.  Pain doc people think they'll get me back to where I was before (you know, doing that running thing which just happens to be a requirement of our sport LOL).

Happy Purple Friday!!!

Take it real easy with that foot/ankle thing...better than having it become chronic.  My right ankle is so messed up from volleyball and basketball I can turn my ankle to the side and almost walk on the ball of my ankle.   Let me know if you want any rehab tricks.  My goto back in the day was the old Stairmaster.

I got brave and went for a walk yesterday, my first day out of the brace. Ugh...for as short of a walk as it was, my foot was twinging. I don't like that! The dog wasn't too impressed with the speed either. She really misses our runs.

Lunchtime swim scheduled for today!

Slow but sure progress...I'm sure walking out of the brace made some scar tissue come loose.

After a weekend of doing almost nothing (similar to our local football team...), I got in about a mile in the pool yesterday and 30 minutes on the bike this morning with about a half hour of strength and core work both days.  Back is still tender from the injections as expected - it takes about a week for that to subside.  Icing it down now (the treatment, not the cake topping...).

Everybody pretty much done racing for the year?

I have also not been very active for the past week and a half. I have the Baltimore Running Festival this weekend in which I am running a leg of the relay, but think I will be pretty slow since I have not really run much lately. Hope to get a run in this afternoon (it was really cold and dark this morning :-/).

Made it to the pool for a midday workout--1200yds. Foot hurt on the push offs some, so I think tomorrow might be an off day (or, maybe I'll "ride" one of those hand cycle bikes at the gym).
