Rest Week! Not sure if a rest week was on the training calendar or not..well actually I am pretty sure it wasn't but my body needed one so I took one! I took a few days off to let my ankle and my knee heal a bit before I put them through a workout again. After four days of doing nothing, I was being driven nuts so I made an appearance at M2's Thursday evening class. He was surprised to see me as I am a Tuesday AM usual! That turned out to be my only workout for the week as he agreed that I needed to take a few days to break and Coach Alex advised I not run until this coming Wednesday and even that will be a run..walk..for 30 minutes at the track to test my ankle out with the torn ligaments healing.
Wildflower seems like years ago and I can now sit down and say that was one of the best weekends ever! As the results were posted, I found out that only 1,740 actually finished the Long Course and of those 1,740, only 452 were women which makes us a bunch of tough cookies! Below are a few more pics..
