Greetings all. I’ve been working on rehabbing my ankle for the past couple weeks since I stopped my 100 days of running. This has given me a really great chance to work on my swimming. I have been swimming 4x per week the past couple weeks and am planning on continuing to do such until mid-February.
After my swim focus I’ll jump into a two-month long bicycle focus to build my legs back up for the coming season. I will be getting Cera (my faithful TT steed) back sometime in early February from the spa and we will have to reunite. I have a brand spankin’ new saddle from Prologo that I can’t wait to try out as well!
My running is going to come back quickly, I believe. I ran 3x last week and started to feel better and generally without pain. I ran 2 five milers and a fast 10k on Saturday (data below). I’m going to continue running 3-4x per week between 4 and 8 miles per run to try and keep my base that I built over the 76 (nee 100) days of running. I’m also really looking forward to getting my new gear for the season. I have 4 pairs of K-Swiss running shoes on the way as I type this: two pairs of Blade-Light Run NPs, one pair of Blade-Light runs and one pair of Blade-Max Glides.
I was also fortunate enough to have a little featurette written up about me over at minnesotatrinews.com (http://minnesotatrinews.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1541:cody-stadler&catid=40:latest-features&Itemid=53#comments). So swing on over there and check it out and give them some traffic, they’re really awesome people.
I’ll do my best to keep you all informed of my progress with training as this awfully cold part of the year continues. Until then, Cheers!
