Big shoes to fill, 50 milers and other (mis) adventures
I am rehabbing the same pesky knee issue that forced me to run all of TNFEC 50K with a KiniseoTaped right knee. After two weeks of VERY light running it is better, but I'm finding that if I step in slightly the wrong way I seem to re-injure it. *sigh* This is not making it any easier for me to decide whether I want to start training for BRR50 and if I actually want to run it, I need to start training like nowish. Clearly I just need to be patient with my knee, to continue working with the capacity I have available and to decide further down the road, but patience has never been my strongest trait. Like right now I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my (new to me--last year's model) Hoka One One Mafates from The Clymb. I've been curious about them for ages and at 60% off I could hardly pass them up. So I'll be switching back and forth between barefoot, minimal and super cushioned. A recipe for disaster? I hope not.
