Gearing up for Back to Back Ragnars

I've been on the quiet side with blogging mainly because I have been concentrating on PT to get running again.  I'll try and expand in a future post about PT and ART, which is what made the night and day difference for me.  The main thing is that I'm running now pain free.  I was fatigued during the run and sore after the run but the calf/hamstring is good.

I'm leaving for Chicago Ragnar tomorrow and since I'm actually able to run I'm very excited.  I managed to pack everything in a large day pack, which is a feat in itself.  My total miles is 19 miles and my last leg is almost 10 miles, which does have me worried since my longest run in over a month was last night and was 5 miles. So much for the 10% rule.   I did email the team captain and reduce my pace down to take some of the pressure off me.  I'd rather under-promise and over deliver.

The following weekend is Wasatch and that race will be a blast since I will be running it with the same friends as last year.  Hopefully it won't be too cold because they got snow a couple weekends ago.

Anyways, that's it for right about now and I'll post soon about Chicago Ragnar and the craziness of the race.

Happy Running!
