Train the Terrain

TOurdebigberapng

Someone very wise and dear to me once told me to “train the terrain”, as in train for the type of race you have coming up.  If you are doing a trail run, train on the trail or any trails for that matter.  My next big even is the Tour De Big Bear on August 3.   Now I can’t get to Big Bear before the ride but I will be focusing mainly on riding my bike for the next 4 weeks.  And riding hills as well 😦

The bike is my nemesis; my Achilles heel of sorts. I find it time consuming and hard to fit in.  So I have made a pledge to myself to stop running in the meantime so I can focus on the bike.  I am also doing this because the pain in my left knee just doesn’t go away so I am hoping a month away from running will help it get better.
