I like surprising myself at races and finding out that I can push a little further than I thought. Last week was a good step forward in my preparation for the Angkor Wat Half Marathon.
It takes a special kind of crazy to go into ultra distance trail racing. Many thanks to Race Yaya for introducing me and fellow members of the media to the Filipinos who finished at the UTMB Festival in Chamonix, France this year.
In this week’s training log, I babble about missing races and adjusting training due to what my body needs and share some skincare tips.
My next destination race will be the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon on December 3.
It’s so important not to get swept up in the hype that comes during registration season. I always consider a few things before I sign up for longer distances because I now know very well that I can’t rush the preparation my body needs.
I’m only now just coming back to normal after an intense week of working behind the scenes for Super League Jersey, and I’m heading into racing a triathlon this weekend.
Super League Jersey is streaming live on September 23 and 24 on superleaguetriathlon.com Don’t miss it!
As my stress level builds with a big work weekend coming up, it’s important to take care of myself even while taking care of business.
Last week I registered for a triathlon, which if I successfully pull off will be my first in over a year.
