So as I mentioned in my last random semi-uncalled for outburst of a post, I am unhappy with my running and even worse...injured. Most of the pain seems to have dissipated with focused massage and stretching but that nagging right hamstring, which kept from me from running early last season, continues to be painful. I had several years without injury so I guess you just do what you can and deal with whatever happens. As I will be travelling to the Middle East for a couple of weeks, I hope to rest and get healthy. I arrive home on May 4th which won't give me much time to prepare for Squaw Peak and the chances of getting a PR this year is quite slim. However I am still excited for Squaw Peak and I hope to race well.
I'm disappointed that I will miss the BSTM. It will be on April 25th while I am out of town. For some reason I thought it would be on the 18th. I haven't caught the triathlon training bug so I am up in the air on how much of that I want to do. For now I will focus on getting healthy and Squaw Peak 50. We will see how I feel afterwards. I have yet to register for any other races so we will see what I feel like doing over the summer and fall. Any secrets for recovering from a lingering hamstring injury?
