Late Fargo 10K report

So I was down in Fargo last weekend for the marathon. I'd originally signed up for the 5K on Friday and the half on Saturday, but given the foot issues I've had, I swapped to the 10K about a month ago. I went with family friends, so we all walked the 5K together on Friday night. The atmosphere was g...

Yuck. Hope the 6 weeks (or so) goes fast though!!

Will you be vacationing in Fargo on May long anyways instead of running?

WPS Half - DNF :(

Well, to get it out of the way, I called it a day at the half way point. My Garmin had hit 10.76 km, and I stopped just about at the relay exchange point. I forgot to hit stop for a while, I think it was about 1:20 at that point. I went into this undertrained, and with a strain in my peroneal tendon...

Re: Winnipeggers - WPS Half?

the deer collision was freaking scary - I was close when it happened, the deer took out a runner about 15 steps behind me. Will be posting a race report, but I'm still sulking that I DNF'd.

Given the lovely forecast, I'm unsure of what to wear that morning. I was planning on a t-shirt, but I'm wondering if long sleeves wo...

Winnipeggers - WPS Half?

Who's running this weekend? I'm still on the fence - I have the go-ahead from an AT to run with my foot taped, should I want to...it's feeling way better and should be okay by Sunday, but I'm going in way under-trained. At this point it'll be a "finish before they chase me off the course" ...

Pulling out of a race?

Ugh. Well, my training has been spotty at best this year so far. I strained the peroneal tendon in my right foot in late February, which led to a few weeks without running while it recovered. Add that to a bout with bronchitis, and my running lately has been limited to very short jogs and mostly wal...

Re: 2 days back into training...foot pain

6 laps to a mile in the same direction...but I went to a walk in this morning and he's diagnosed a strain in the peroneal tendon & told me not to run for a week. And stuck me on crutches for the next 3 days.

Not a very happy camper here!

Re: 2 days back into training...foot pain

concrete track sounds very nasty! i assume your running shoes are right for your gait, in good shape and not to old or worn out? Shoes are right according to the Running Room and another local running store, and are in good shape. I wore them for a few months last year with no issues at all. I iced...

2 days back into training...foot pain

So as I said in my journal post, I started getting an ache in my foot when running on the treadmill today. My first run in a few weeks was a 2.5 mile run + 1.5 mile walk on a concrete track last night. It wasn't a bad ache, but I figured it was a good idea to stop, so I biked for a bit. It got stead...
