2010 has been a real kick in the butt so far. Both vehicles gone – one due to being totaled in an accident, the other due to engine failure. I’ve been without my car for almost 3 weeks now. Making for some huge van/bus/train/walk to work, and walk/train/bus/bus/run home commuting days. Monday was 5 hours total time spent getting to and from work…
We’ve had our share of sickness, and I tripped at mile 24 of a 28 mile night run home from work 2 weeks ago and badly dislocated my finger. Ouch. Had to yank it back in place and then run 4 more miles home.
Through it all I’ve kept up my training. I’ve been steady at 60 mpw for a few months and have 7 weeks of doing anywhere from a 20 to 32 mile long run. I’m feeling very strong, but not too fast. About right for February, I’d say.
Looking forward to warmer weather, a working finger, and a car to drive.
I still need to write up my report of my WRIAD birthday ride (way back in Oct.). It was epic!
That sounds like a brutal four miles!
