I really believe that I can get faster and faster, and I am excited to start training again. Speaking of that, my next marathon is Boston. I submitted my registration yesterday. I am also running the Skyline Fells Race on December 3rd. It is an 8 mile loop, and you can pick how many loops you want to do. I'd like to do 4, but that will depend on the weather and how my legs feel. I am also thinking of racing a Turkey trot. I have not run a short race in a long time, and I am eager to see how fast I can go.
But for now, I am going to continue to rest my running muscles. My ITband is way better; however, I went for a 15 mile bikeride yesterday (my first with a headlamp) and my IT band did not like it one bit. Not a happy camper about this, but I hope time, icing, rolling, will make it better soon! I hate injuries! My plan is to let everything heal, no matter how long it will take. Plus, I really need to work on my swimming as I plan to do some longer triathlons this summer!
