Thinking ahead...

So with my leg now approaching working order it’s time to think about the rehabilitation piece. I have written the rest of the year off in terms of racing, I am volunteering at the PCTR Pt Mugu race at the end of the month. It’s the course of my first ultra, a scant two years ago! If you’re in the neighborhood come up, say hi and check it out, there are multiple distances starting at 9km. They’re great races, well organized and fun…seriously what’s not to like!

With the rehab in mind, I’ll be introducing the bike for the next two weeks, maybe three and then hopefully put on some running shoes and taking baby steps with a view to being back in the game to start training towards the end of the year/beginning of next. That’s in addition to the swimming, which if I confess to myself I am starting to enjoy and, if truth be told, getting a bit better at. Of course now I've got a cough that nearly turns me inside out, couldn't have caught when I was limping around...oh no!

I am starting to think about next year’s schedule and have some ideas about the first half of the year which will pull me off the trails, I need to work on regaining some of my speed back, I’ve not done speed work since the beginning of the year and it will carry over onto the trails later in the year I’ve got some lofty goals and I am working out the target races but it’s looking like it will be a busy six months!

So with that all said tonight was the drawing for the Chocolate #9 gels and the winner is…

Aron email me your address and I'll get them in the mail, enjoy!
