I had the runs for 8 days after my first tri. Lots of pastureland draining into the river we swam in. Couldn't imagine having them for 30 days tho.

#1274- 6.2 mi progression - did my last 3.1 miles under 20min

Still at it. Logging 70-80 mpw. I have one more long run before my taper. Last Friday I did my longest run of this training block, just over 35 miles with approximately 10k feet of gain, and 10k feet of loss. I started about 2 hours pre-dawn with my headlamp and made it to a nice pond just in time to see the sun come up. Run went well. My feet were a bit sore since my shoes are a bit past expiration, and at one point I sort of forgot to refill my water and had some dehydration issues, Other than that I feel like I am ready for my race on May 13th. I am doing 30 miles or so Friday, then I will recover a bit with a nice 3 week taper.

Monday - #995 - 2 miles after about 22 on my first real ride outside
Tuesday - #996 - 4 miles at lunch, 1500y swim later
Wednesday - #997 - 2 miles in the evening
Thursday - #998 - 2 miles
Friday - #999 - 2 miles and then 1:20 on the bike trainer
Saturday - #1000 - 2 miles easy
Sunday - #1001 - 2 miles before yard work, then 2 hours on the bike trainer

It was an interesting week. Started to develop a nagging injury about Monday or so, I think associate with the gluteus medius. My first 50-100 yards are a shuffle until I can fall into a stride. Been rolling out a ton, it provides some relief, but it seems to be back every morning. Have an appointment this afternoon.

On Wednesday, I had to go across the state for a couple days for work. Of course on Wed evening when I got dressed to run, I realized I only brought ONE of my running shoes. Not one pair...just one shoe. So rather than let the streak go, I ran in sandals on Wednesday night and Thursday. Definitely slowed me down, but I still got it done.

I wanted to do something more for #1000, but I think 2 miles was about all my body was going to allow that day.

Im not sure I should be doing a daily run -Im a newbie with some overweight- but I've been following a couch to 5k -sort off- program lately and I already run-walked 4 days in a row (average of 5,5-6 km) -I'm in the final weeks of the program.

I dont want to rush into running, but I do have a deadline slowly approaching. In order to commit myself to weight loss and training, a couple of weeks ago I registered for the 70,3 in Punta del Este (Uruguay) which will be held at the end of November. I am way off in my training but I still believe there is time for me to get fit and ready, and when I saw this 30 day challenge I was intrigued and got sucked into it.

I will let you know how this goes.

Saludos,
Fernando (Argentina)

Fighting a glute injury which is resulting in a very tight piriformis. Giving consideration to dropping the streak. I don't really want to, but we'll see - might be forced to regardless of what I want.

#1297-1298- 108 miles - Ran the Cruel Jewel. I'll probably write a race report. It was the toughest race I've ever done. This race was VERY physically challenging. 108 miles, 33,000+ feet of climbing. I finished 14th of 106 at 29 hours 29 minutes.

#1299- 2 miles. I was DREADING having to run for the entire 14 hour drive home, I was pretty beat up but didn't want the streak to end. It wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be. Averaged 14 minute miles, which I thought was not too shabby considering how I felt on the ride home. Every time I got out of the car for food or gas, I really couldn't fathom how I was going to run when I got home.

Haven't checked in for awhile, congrats on hitting 1000, and I hope you pull through the injury.
