Good luck! I predict you're going to have a great day.

Thanks man! I felt my preparation was spot on only to have a bad night before race day. Literally at 9pm, I developed bad stomach bloat which included discomfort. Tums helped a bit but I was farting all night and peed every hour. Wth??? Anyway, I didn't to rehydrate with water due to peeing so much so I think I entered the race in a dehydrated state. I didn't wanna overdrink to compensate at breakfast so I was faced with a tough dilemma. I finished outside my predicted time range with 5:19 which I'm still kinda pissed off at.

The weather was warmer and more humid than predicted too which could explain why my HR and RPE was higher forcing me to significantly slow down. Anyway, I was happy I was able to pull off a strong finish and not hit the wall.

My race report is up if any of you would like to read.

Nice to see so many of you are in the black.

I hurt my knee back in February and haven't run since. My knee pain occurred after a stretch of three consecutive days of cross country skiing followed by two running days. By the end of the run on the second day I had a sharp pain on the inside of my knee. It stiffened up and got worse later in the day. For about a month after that the pain was a significant nuisance and I walked with a limp. My family Dr arranged x-rays which ruled out osteoarthritis. The Dr suspected a meniscus tear. He said to let pain be my guide in deciding which activities to engage in.

I'm feeling pretty good now. I've stopped limping and for the most part I'm not aware of any knee pain. Occasionally I feel a twinge when my leg is twisted and running/jumping/impacts are still out of the question. My wife and I have recently become interested in climbing (obsessed actually) and are spending a lot of time in the local climbing gyms. Oddly enough climbing doesn't hurt my knee and I was climbing around one week after the injury. Cycling is not a problem, and now that winter has loosened its grip I'm doing a lot of riding.

I'm not sure when I'll return to running or whether I'll ever be able to run as much as I have over the last couple of years. Fortunately there are other sports that I'm passionate about and I know I'll find ways to stay active.

Thanks
Don

Sorry to hear about your knee Don, but glad you have other interests!  I climbed a bit when I was a teen and loved it.

I have had 3 mediocre training weeks due to busy-ness and a cold.  Had a tough run today, couldn't hit my target paces, but at least I am back at it.

Hmmm - injuries are taking their toll on the 1000-mile contenders..I pulled a hamstring at a 10k three weeks ago and can't run or ride a bike for love or money. Best wishes for speedy recoveries to anyone else who's laid-up...

I'll jump on the thread as I started the 1000 challenge myself Jan 1st. Been using a separate google sheet but just added my total to the thread's gsheet as of today.

Been with BT since 2008 and recall reading alltom1's B2B race report for intel back in 2012. Took a few years off and got slow and no longer racing, but good to be back on BT forums and what is left of the community.
