Despite all this, I've set a goal to run Bloomsday, a 12k in my hometown of Spokane. Right now, I can only run for about ten minutes until my IT Bands start giving me problems, but I think the key is to focus on other activities that will restore my legs, and entire body. That will help balance out the wear and tear of running.
So, I've set a few goals for myself this winter:
- Go to yoga at least twice a week
- Focus on biking and swimming
- Take time to build strength, mainly through weight-lifting
I did pretty well this week, although I have a long way to go. But, I think I can do it! Bloomsday, here I come!
