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.
