Half training: Weeks 8-13

I’ve been quiet so I feel I owe you all a short update. I’ve been pretty busy so not so much downtime to blog.

Here’s how my rollercoaster has gone:

Highlights include (in chronological order):

  • longest bike ride yet which included the largest hill I’ve found around these parts (and can’t wait to get back out there!!)
  • hiked Mt Olympus in a hailstorm (heard thunder!!)
  • heat exhaustion while mapping in Cyprus
  • avoided riots in London while running from one landmark to another
  • kicked butt at the Lake Sara run (11:09 with hILLs and crazy headwind) – particularly for not having a good run in a while….
  • went to my first ever Second Wind organized run
  • lost a toenail on a 4 miler
  • first 2x/wk yoga
  • tried and loved Gu (seriously.. that stuff is gelled magic – made my mile 7 feel like mile 2!)
  • recovering knee
  • injured my foot on the not-quite-10 miler (still not sure what’s going on there)
  • nearly resigned myself to a life as a competitive cyclist due to said injury
  • have found nothing actually wrong with my foot.. I’m guessing a deep-seated bruise from a nodule in my orthotics? time will tell….
