This summer has just been cruising by at a rapid pace. Life has been in the way of being faithful to my blog. With the winding down of the summer (I hate how that sounds) I now have a little time to blog.
The running has not been going so well. I seem to have lost a little of that loving feeling and my motivation has dropped. I decided to take a week off to rest and ponder my training plan. it turns out that was a good idea. In a freak simple move, I wrenched my lower back. I am not a person who has back problems. but this dropped me to my knees. The good news is that slowly the pain has gone away and tomorrow I will head out for a 5 miler to get back into my running groove. It is just 5 weeks before my half marathon and I need to get back to my regular running. I hope the week off has not hurt me too bad. I just need to remember that I run for me and I do it because I love it.
After the half I am off to a conference in Milwaukee. I have never been there and am looking forward to the trip. It will be an exciting conference. There is a 5k fun run that everyone participates in and it is a great time.
