Aw, Tasha, I didn't get to the gym till about 5 today.
We just miss you again. We left just after 5. We arrived about 3:30 and left after 5 ish.
We'll run into together soon.
Yeah I've checked out the chirunning site, just reading around it helped me think about getting my stride more right, which is helping in injury recovery *i think* and wow yeah i would love to get our computers together, if their owners can ever swing it!
lol Do you have one those portable devices that loads information from other computers ?
Tasha that's such an intense work out schedule you built in to your busy work days. Damn girl, you are hardcore! I don't even come close to that, but it's kind of along the same idea, that's why I wanted to work on running outside over winter break... How did you know when you were finally ready to run outside?
I mentally felt like I should because I wanted a change of scenery. After a while It gets boring running on a belt all the time.
I started running on trails. I felt it was a lot softer on my legs and better on my shoes, then hitting the hard pavement. I didn't have to worry about stop lights, traffic or other cyclists in the way.
I felt free you know ?
There was one part were you had to watch out for horse back riders, people walking their dogs. You just had to try to go on not so busy times. If you wanted to avoid this.
This was a great 10km loop. A lot of professional triathletes trained on this course. People like Brendan Brazier, Simon Whitfield, Kristen Sweeney, Brent McMahon etc... http://www.crd.bc.ca/parks/documents/el ... map_bw.pdf
Brendan introduce me to this run. This one was my favorite courses. I always felt some kind of rush to avoid the golf balls. Nothing ever came close to hitting me, but it was fun to think about. http://www.golfcedarhill.com/index.php
Yeah google around for trails in Portland. I'm sure there's a ton. You might actually enjoy it a lot better then running inside all of the time. But remember just to take baby steps. I know I did especially when I got hit hard by a car from riding my bike. After being off the road for 9 months. I felt it was time to go back on the roads again. And then a year later I knew it felt right to train by myself again.
Another thing I figured out about my hesitation to take it outside - I don't wanna run on a track because I think tracks are so boring, but I'm intimidated by taking it to the unpredictable terrain of sidewalks/streets... afraid it will aggravate my injury. If I do this I'm going to have to do it when it's light out.
Cool I look forward to reading about it soon
