with the sharp drop off in running (and races) over the last three weeks as i struggle to recover from a nagging ankle injury, i'm a bit dubious about putting together a race schedule for august. i will run in the nyrr team championship race this weekend - in need point number 6 on the road to 9 for 2013. but it will be more running than racing.
looking further down the road, i have to focus on building my base mileage back up. the last 3 weeks have seen mileage of 15, 12 and 10 miles, respectively. that's down from an average of 50 miles a week over the prior months. it's demoralizing to say the least - especially since i seem to be in the two steps forward, one step back, recovery mode.
i have a follow-up with the sports doctor next week to assess where i'm at. at that point i should be in better shape to map out what other races i can line up for in august.
