I finally have a new man in my life. He is dependable, stable and helps to ease my burdens. He accompanies me on my long runs without complaining and manages to stay a few steps ahead of me. Who is it? Bob. Bob the Ironman stroller. I can’t tell if it is love or just a crush because my hands always get sweaty when I hold his hand(le bars). O.k. I think I have taken this far enough.
But, yes, thanks to my sponsorship, I am starting to train with my new stroller a couple of times a week. I am slowly adding in the weight as I get used to the steering and hand positioning. I need to find more paved areas to run in though because my bumpy back roads are not ideal for the road tires.
I cranked out 98.1 miles this week. Last week’s injury has gone from pain to discomfort. It is actually more of an “ism” than an injury. My sacroiliac joint is slightly malformed and occasionally gets out of alignment, which sets my pelvis and leg at an angle that causes me pain. I have been through it before so I know that eventually it will sort itself out.
I take my licensing exams this week and am looking at starting work as a Massage Therapist in Dover by July. Busy busy! I keep thinking that I will catch a break but it hasn’t happened yet. But as crazy and hectic as my life is right now I feel incredibly excited about my future and know I am headed in the right direction.
