Injury again

On Saturday I was racing in 10k race in Radostice. Very nice race, perfect nature scenery. Just it is difficult because of the weather, that is usually here in January. A lot of mud and pieces of ice.
I did not run it very fast and I enjoyed it even the conditions were not perfect.
But then it happened...

It has been 5 months since I twisted my right ankle. And on Saturday I did it again. :-(.
At least I could use the help of one spectator, that helped me to get to the finish line and my friend helped me to get home.
It means, that I cannot have any running plans for this year. And may be I will need to completely stop my running as my ankle is strictly against it.

No race schedule yet

I did not plan the race schedule for 2009 yet. I just know I want to run marathon or 1/2 Ironman this year (finally). I had the same plan for last year, but was not able to complete it.
After my ankle injury in the fall and a lack of exercise, I am in a bad shape. I need to slowly increase my running mileage (15 miles last week is really poor) and definitely I need to start swimming in the pool. I will not set any dates for races until I get to a better shape.

Running again

I am getting old. At least my "friends" told me that when I first came to work after Christmas. They had a good reason for that, because I was not able to turn my head without turning my whole body. On Saturday morning, when I was getting up, my neck was blocked. I really could not do anything, just lay horizontal.
Today I feel much younger and I am glad to run my first miles in 2009.

New Year's post

It's been sooo looong since I posted my latest post. Isn't it time to renew my blog? The start of the New Year may be the good time for it.

It is also a good time to set goals (as I need to do for my employer also). So my sport's related goals may look like this:

1/ get rid of the 20 pounds overweight (running and biking will be much easier ;-))
2/ finish my first 1/2 ironman or similar distance (do I really want to set this goal?)
and finally - regularly send posts to my multisport blog (is 1 post per month enough?)

Hmm,these goals are definitely well measurable, but ... are they also achievable? Let's hope they are.
