It looks like I am going to have to have a "Come to Jesus" talk with myself and see if I can man up for the heat in Louisville or endure a long season if I choose Arizona. Anyone that has read my blog this summer knows that I don't like the heat. I am all fine and dandy for the heat on the bike, but when you put me in running gear and send me out in the heat I get whiny. It's either going to be time "put up or shut up" or avoid it altogether. Personally the thought of chasing my heat demons is kind of appealing in a sick, twisted way. I know wherever I go it's not going to be easy. I know there are a lot of elements out of my control. Hopefully I can make a decision that I am happy with and move forward with my training plan. It's all going to boil down to how much I am willing to put into my training. Preparation will be key.
As far as marathon training goes, today is a rest day for me. I am going to spend some time with the foam roller and ice my knees. I will plan on jumping on the elliptical tomorrow and maybe even take my bike for a spin on Wednesday. It's been nearly 2 months so I have ridden my bike. I stopped because of the knee, but a nice, easy spin might be in order.
