I don't think I realized you've had hip flexor issues. Can you tell me more about your experience?

I'm glad the run went well. :) 20 miles is a long ways. That's probably what I'll max out at in my training.

I haven't really had any major issues but during the 20K I did in the beginning of december it was acting up and was sore for about a week afterwards, i.e. it hurt to lift my leg up to put my socks on in the morning for a couple of days. I went to my school's trainer they did some ice/heat and STEM for about a week afterwards and that seemed to of make most of it go away. Occasionally it still acts up a little bit but doesn't really bother/impair me like it did during that race/week.

No problem there were some leftovers so what is it like 75$ to overnight to maryland? At least thats how much temptation ice cream was charging to overnight one of their pumpkin ice cream pies from chicago to texas hehe.

haha heavens no, I just saw it on their website a few weeks ago and just for giggles looked to see how much it would be to overnight the pumpkin ice cream pie, since the only other option was to pick it up at their factory in chicago I think.

It'll get to you eventually. I went the the Animal Rights Conference in DC and had it there(never heard of it before that)...after two months I was surprised to find it in abundance in Richmond, VA.

9:45- 1 pear

11:45- (At Michelle and Ed's brunch potluck!)- lots of pineapple, grapes, strawberries, 2 slices spelt bananna bread, 2 small pumpkin waffles with maple syrup

4:30- 3 dates, lil bit coconut butter

warm up, 5K tempo run (20:12)

6- bananna, handful dulse

7- 1/2 serving berry Vega in water, black-eyed peas, cabbage, brown rice

10- small bowl of "moroccan sweet potatoes and vegetables, Large salad w/ 3 cups mixed greens, green beans,celery, brocolli, + 1 apple


I was pleased with my 5K time, knocked off 20 seconds or so from last week, which was 45 seconds faster than previous week! I was running a route that I hadn't done before in a neighborhood that wasn't my own and I slowed down a couple times and even stopped once completly to makes sure I was still going the right way, so otherwise I'm sure it woulda been under 20 minutes.


Meeting Ed and Michelle in person was fun and was unfortunate that we didn't get to hang out more, but I am very pumped about going back to austin to start my cycling teams winter training camp, jeez gotta get back to packing!!!!

8:30- performance pancakes

- 90m Bike Ride, training with cycling team ate 2 homemade energry bars,6 oz of homemade energy gel, and coconut water throughout

5- 1 bananna

5:40- recovery pudding

6:40- 1 Serving Berry Vega in water

7:50- dinner at macrobiotic restaurant w/ White Miso, Vegetable, Wakame soup + Medium & Short Brown Rice with Pepitas+ Kidney w/ Suncheese+ Mushrooms, Carrots, Onions & Guacamole Tacos (2) + Steamed Greens+ 2 plates of salad + pickeled beets


It was mighty cold today on the ride, but I had gone out yesterday and gotten some cold gear (toe wind breaks, base layer, ear wrap thing, full finger gloves) and that helped alot. I am by far and far the leasnt experienced guy on the team and man does it show! -yesssh

anyway the ride was supposed to be 105, but the pack-leaders called the sweeper SAG car (which was basically the SAG for me and one other guy who were waaaaaaayyy behind them) and said the road they were on sucked majorly and they packed it up, so I did as they recommened and just stick my bike in the car from a certain point.

While I really wanted to get to a full century that was still the longest I have ever ridden ( second being a 70 or 65m ride during my oregan bike tour last summer) So i was pleased. jeez need to get to bed now!

Don't worry about not doing the full 100miles. You would have been able to do it it easily with your running base.
