Colorado Marathon 2011: Training Week 6&7 Summary
Not much to report really. I'm completely off schedule now, due to some chronic tendinitis in my left posterior tibialis. I'm quite frustrated by it, but I have no choice but to rest it, cross train, strength train, and do short test runs now and then to see where I'm at. So far... I haven't seen any improvement in two weeks, even with a round of Prednisone and a full round of NSAID treatment combined with Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation (RICE). The NSAIDS and compression seem to help quite a bit, but they are the only things that seem to help.
So.... Not much to report, as I said. I hope to ease back into training and still be position to finish the marathon, but I'll need to wait until I can train without the resulting pain and inflammation.
