I have started a new chapter in my life. I joined the U.S. Triathlon association (don't get too excited, it saves me money for the events). I am going to participate in my first triathlon on May 31 in Carthage, MO. It consists of a 250 yard swim, 15 mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile run. I have been training hard and look forward to this new chapter in my adult onset athleteticism.
I recently discovered that I have a congenital defect in my right foot called tarsal coalition. It basically means that my right foot is not as flexible as my left. This in conjunction with my overpronation puts me at risk for achilles injuries. I am currently resting my achilles for 6 weeks. My first run will be May 24. I am walking the Flying Pig Marathon this coming weekend (May 3). I am logging all of my workout mileage on www.dailymile.com it is a great way to keep a journal of your training.
