Take It and Run Thursday: Backwards TIaRT - You Ask the Question
Today's TIaRT is for the bloggers to ask their peeps a question.
I'm a running newbie. I have much to learn. One of the great things about the blogging community is that advice comes freely and quickly. I mentioned my symptoms of a poor ending in my 15 miler, and you all came to say that I didn't fuel well enough, along with tips for fueling.
So, I guess I need to ask a question in order to play along this week.. I guess mine right now would be: "How do you go about getting running in when your schedule goes upside down? Say, you are working a lot, your sleep patterns are changed, you're busy at home. How do you do it? Can you train for a race in such conditions?" Yeah, that looks to be about 3 questions, but it's all related.
My run last night went as I feared. I made it about 2.5 miles before my ITBS kicked in. I'm going to go on the assumption that I can get it in gear in a month or so, like this article says. I'll keep stretching and rolling and hoping, and we'll see where I get.
I was thinking on the way in to work, that I've been feeling really good lately (apart from my leg). I think it's because I'm really in an unofficial taper. Very little running, my body is ready to go. Alas, too bad there's not a race on the horizon. I'm really hoping that as spring is arriving that I'll be able to run in the nice weather...
Keep on rockin', everyone!
