I'm back in the world of the living...

Not too much time to post today but a short note to let anyone who has stumbled across my ramblings that I am still out and about.

I got a new bike helmet for Valentine's Day and I am stoked about it. It might sound silly but I like getting new toys for my bike and this is a great one! It's one more reason to get amped about the upcoming season!

I went last week without working out too much due to issues with my knee and hamstring. Seems I was a little overzealous in some workouts and really stressed the hammy, which put extra pressure on the knee. This week has been short (2-2.5 mile) runs and lots of stretching. It seems to be helping as the soreness is subsiding.

Stretching is something that I do not do enough. I am confirming that all this week as I cannot touch my toes without rolling my shoulders almost all the way forward. Even then, it is hard to pull off. Tomorrow I am going to run 3-4 miles and do another longer run this weekend. Provided that the legs hold up okay, I'll progress with training and continue to pursue the olympic distance for the Cactus Challenge. If not, I'll settle for the sprint with Miyo.

We'll see how it goes and I'll let you know soon.
