3 Weeks to Comrades 2013!!


602654_385540421556311_1705717271_nThis week went by faster than I would have imagined! Ankle is still giving me problems so time is now literally flying between visiting the Chiro, Biokineticist, going for sports massages and on top of that trying to get some “running” in. I have now accepted I have an injury. It is not getting better. I might have aggravated the ankle yesterday with my hill training. Ankle seemed fine during the session, but this morning it just started to pain again, so I am opting for physio as a last resort. Go For Physio! Just hope I have not left this for too late now :-(.

imagesI am getting a bit stressed now, don’t like the fact that I am  not able to do that last bit of training. But the next week I have to focus on getting the ankle  sorted if I want to be at the start on 2 June. Not the best of positions to be in just 3 weeks from Comrades! Excited, nervous, paranoid…yip, include cranky, irrational, moody…all at the same time 🙂

Quote of the day: “I have my own unique road that has had many exciting ups and heart-breaking downs, but one thing I know is that my journey is not over and the best is yet to come”. Ryan Hall, Olympic marathoner


About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
