Running has always been bittersweet for me, while I love to run, running does not always love me. If you follow my blog you read about my constant injuries, most recently a stress fracture that ended my road to the NYC Marathon last year (before it was cancelled by Sandy). Most recently my knee has been bothering me, but this was from a squat, not running, although it does impact my running. My vacation is going to be a rest period for running and rehab for my knee, while I continue to walk what feels like thousands of miles at Disney.
My two upcoming goals are to finish the Brooklyn Half on May 18th and to power walk a marathon for breast cancer at the Moonwalk on July 20th. In order to accomplish these goals I have been running 3 days a week, which will slowly transition into a power walking/running plan after my half-marathon. In addition to running I have been cross-training 3 days a week thanks to workouts from my Fitorbit trainer Amanda.
