13 weeks until my 100 miler and counting..
Not sure my countdown has been particular lucky so far.
It's been up and down training for the past 3weeks. I have been only to squeak out 52, 40, and 49 miles the past weeks. Not close where I want to be right now.This Chronic ankle'itis is starting to really put a downer in my training and interfering with my so called "happy ultra place."
Since I'm self diagnosing myself I probably sprained my ankle previously and has trudged through it by taking days off and running again. I think leading to"Chronic Ankle Instability."
Am I worried? Hard to say, more pissed than anything else that my body is not giving me a healthy week so far. But trying to keep a "can do" attitude.
"Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow; it only robs today of its strength." ~ A.J. Cronin
They saw it is 90% mental right?
But YES I know, R.I.C.E. and listen to you body. So I will in my own way this week and cross train for the rest of the week by doing some non-impact activities like cycling and swimming. Then hopefully off to the trails once again this weekend.
It's going to be cold one thou this weekend:
Saturday ~Windy. Partly sunny. Very cold. Highs 6 to 10 above.
Sunday ~ Partly cloudy. Highs 15 to 19.
Ohh weee, actually a warm up on Sunday. But at least I will have have one or two Triathlon club homies to keep me company in the frozen tundra.
