Overcoming Injuries

When you push your body hard injuries are bound to happen.  Training for a 100 mile race is no different.  Training for a race like Bighorn Mountain Wild and Scenic is not for the faint of heart.

So it wasn’t a surprise when I was out running trails with new snow that I buried my left leg deep in some new snow.  As my left knee bent backwards at speed I knew that my training would have be put on hold for a couple of weeks.

Doctor reports came back with no ligament damage so I knew it was just a matter of a little rest, which is not easy, and some exercise to strengthen it again.

So I took the time off and the knee feels great so it is time to start the hard training again.  Two weekends from now I’ll be starting my back to back long runs on Saturday and Sunday.

Stay tuned as I post regular training updates on this site with some really awesome pictures.
