Needs more cowbell!

    Whoa, Chelsea is going to rock that race!


    Can't wait to cheer you guys.  There will be quite a few RA peeps there, from the sound of things.  I look forward to spectating. Big grin

      Glad to hear things are improving for both of you -- Zoom-Zoom and Mr. PH.   When you get discouraged, keep in mind that you're lucky to be able to measure in days and not months....

      I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...

        Yes.

         I'm so glad you have such a definitive answer after all of this!  Best of luck healing.

          I am really looking forward to it.  We will be staying at the Days Inn in Grand Haven.  It was like $145+ a night at the Holiday Inn in Spring Lake!  I think Chelsea will probably run with Tammy.  It will be her first long distance race.  She has never raced more than a 5k.

              Ouch...though that is a really nice place with some pretty views.  We'll have to do supper the night before the race, or something.  And Chelsea is going to do just fine.  She's a Velich.  You guys are tough! Big grin

                Zoomy. Good news. Nice to get back running. The ankle will also get stronger from the load of running. You will respond quickly now. I rode the bike a few times with my recent hamstring pull and it was a nice change but I enjoy running more and how it makes me feel and the work out it gives me on less effort. For me, I just have to pound the heck out of the bike to the point of discomfort to get my HR up or above 110-115. A slow jog gets me be above 120.  I am good to go now.

                 

                You should be good to go in 6 weeks and have your running fitness back. . It is not like you were sitting around eating donuts.

                  That's kind of what I was figuring, too.  And you are right about it being hard to work as hard, aerobically, on the bike.  But the hours sure do pass fast pedaling.  A 4 hour bike ride is nothing.  4 hours on-foot is a LONG-ass run! Tongue

                    Zoomy,

                    Such great news!  It sure is great to be back to running, but we'll need to meet up for a bike ride eventually.

                    Thank you for taking the time to read my signature!
