No, I'm no Joe DiMaggio (those who have seen me play baseball know first hand as I am more accurate kicking a ball then most folks are at throwing one-just one of those skills I never worked hard at developing I guess) but some have asked where my blog has gone. It hasn't gone away, just on hiatus. Since coming up lame 1.5 months ago I have been diligently working to get back and if I am being honest...it's taking longer then it's ever taken before. This is not my idea of fun as running is something I LOVE to do and since I've been wrestling with this injury it's been tough to sit and write about. All-in-all the symptoms are much better, but while running things are not 100% right, just enough so to keep my holding back a bit. The big hurdle coming up is "time". I am getting very close to the point where if I'm unable to get mileage back up I'll need to begin re-assessing my race plans for the fall. I just won't be able to get the proper training and mileage under my belt to compete safely. So the next 1-2 weeks are going to tell a lot. During that time, I will be out there working to log some long slow miles to see if after all this rest the ship can right itself.
We shall see.
