Challenges


I am registered for some awesome races still this year, but training for them has been full of challenges. Getting into shape is getting harder as the years role on so the steps backwards because of sickness or whatever mishap seems to have bigger impacts than before.

I am very dedicated and was just getting into a perfect rhythm with my training when I got food poisoning after a birthday party last week. Just like that and another 5 days not able to train. But I remain positive and still have enough time to have an amazing rest of 2014. 

I will still shine...even though I feel a bit like the fellow below...


Have a great week everyone!

I hear you... after my good year last year I was hopin for more of the same, in fact I was going to up the trqining and more to the next level. That didn't happen...

In the last 9 weeks I've don't nothing but run slowly looking for a pace that is pain free and slowly it's coming right and I'm hopeful that the "rest" will treat me well for a good end to the year!!! So here's to a great 2nd half of the year!!!
