Hello Hello and Welcome back,
Thanks for taking the time to read a little of whats been going on with my training for this month race. Last month I was able to participate in the Nocturnal Sin 10K, all I can say it was a blast and I love every minute of it. I was also able to meet and become good friends with Stephanie and Ken, who are the owners of Beyond Limits Running.
Meeting great people and making friends is what I love most about RUNNING, To me its a blessing because Im able to motivate others by just showing them what a little effort can do .
This race will be different since I am currently battling an Injury and will be running with my 2nd youngest brother (Victor). During my regular workouts I managed to over do it when I was jumping rope and managed to hurt my left legs Achilles. Dealing with feet or legs injuries is no joke, specially if your in the process of training for your next race. So I decide to switch things up and I began to ride my bike ever where to let my left achilles heal, I also included swing to my daily routine. Here is a video of me at the pool doing my thing,
Thanks to the swing pool I was able to get back to my training. This for me was a totally new experience and after learning all the benefits that you get, I was hooked and now its part of my regiment.
At the start of this week I began to run once again, and it felt great to be back in action specially after not running for a whole week. I felt like a NEWBIE. =)
However there was a draw back, I still felt a little pain on my foot when it hits the ground. So I decide to start wrapping my ankle to get a bit more support when I run. I'm glad I did. because of it I was able to continue my running routine. This past Thursday before my night run, I decide to do it with out any ankle tape. The pain is still there, which means its not fully healed. So this Saturday night I will be wrapping my ankle to get that support to be able to clear this next race. "NO PAIN, NO GAIN"
I will also have the chance to finally run along with one of my brother, my goal is to run with all of them, total of 3. Here is a photo of us two at the last event. He has also been training but for a young fit young man like him it should be cake.
