It has been a bit of time since I have written about running – but I have been running, despite the weather’s attempts to deter me! I am 8 weeks into training for Fargo! Training has been going well. I feel like I am powering through my runs – even the long ones! My times are getting faster – just a little. The transition to the barefoot style of running and the minimalist shoes is complete and I feel like I could run forever! I don’t hurt when I run these days – no joint pain and no back pain! I am getting stronger, which is a big help on those long runs. I am just getting to the really long runs – 18 this weekend and 3 -20 mile runs prior to the taper! I am getting excited to start hill running – the Minneapolis Marathon has a killer hill at mile 17!
Now the goal is to stay healthy and injury free for the next 10-12 weeks!
Fargo here I come (21 May) and then 2 weeks later Minneapolis (05 June)!
