Trails and trials

28 Sep

Long time, no see!  Yeah, I know.  But, I promise it’s all for good reasons.  Training of course.  Leanne and I have been training for our trail half marathon coming up this Saturday.

Trail walking. Who's that girl!?

Osmanthus Trail, up we go!

We are going to be walking in the White Tail Trail Half Marathon in Caesar’s Creek Ohio.  Gotta same I have a little bit of trepidation about all this since it’s my first trail half marathon.  I know I can do it, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to kick my butt.  I am so glad that I bought my trail running shoes.  Membah these…?

Awesome Puma trail running shoes. Don't mind the messy coffee table or dining room table...

I highly recommend them.  Really I do. 

Anywho, Leanne and I walked on Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Not to mention Pilates on Thursday which always adds a bit more burn into the week. 

We did our trail training at First Landing Park on the Osmanthus and Bald Cypress trails.  They will definitely get your booty in gear, especially the sandy uphills at the end of the trail.  Always a pleasure, really. 

I also discovered that I may have pulled or have done something to my plantar fasciitis.  It really killed on Saturday when we walked, but Sunday it was a lot better.  We are trying to taper this week, but plan on one more trail walk on Tuesday.  Then it’s rest those poor feet, legs, and butt! 

Hope y’all are having a good start to your week.  Catch ya on the flip side!

    You go girls!
    I am totally supporting you both in your quest for half-marathons in 50 states! Whatever I can do to help – just ask.
    Personally – I am fine with one half marathon in one state/year!
