Back....again....did I say that already?

I hope I am not speaking to soon when I say that I AM BACK BABY!!!!!!

....and it feels sooooo good!

My boyfriend Peter just walked over and laughed at me because apparently I have written about being "back" a million times. He made me scroll back through and I called bullshit, and saw nothing. The only thing I said I was "back" about was coming back to training after taking 2 weeks off after Mountain Masochist.

So, with that said, I will continue...

I ran Tuesday for 40 minutes pain free....woohoo, Wednesday 35 min pain free, and today for 55 pain free. I should probably take a day off running but man it just feels so dam good. And the best part, Peter and I have been going in the dark w/ our headlamps (it gets dark at 4:30pm). It feels like we are all alone in our forest trails but there have been a couple other headlamp flashing runners.

Anywho, I am heading to Powell River to visit the parents on Sunday until Thursday. Powell River is a great place with a wide variety of places to run. We usually run around Inland Lake which is 13km around and dead flat. Last year it was covered in snow which made for a fun time. BC Bike race is heading over there next year for one of their stages. Apparently they have amazing mountain bike trails that I have never seen or heard of. Looks like we have some exploring to do because wherever there are mountain bike trails, there are killer running trails.

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you all enjoy time with family and friends, good food, and a whole lot of running (with all that extra time)!

See you in the trails!

Here is an email quotte between Nicola and myself once I had time to look back through her blog.

Peter says:

"The last 2 weeks I had been dealing with some tight muscles (calf, IT-Band, and hip flexor). A little A.R.T seemed to clear that up and I am ready to take on the world."

That is a quote from your blog. So Bullshit to you!!!!!
