Training Journal 3/11-3/17

Monday, March 11- Sunday, March 17, 2013: My favorite part of the week had to be when I ran 23 miles of the Kepler Track from Luxmore Hut to Rainbow Reach (Tuesday). So inspiring, energizing, and a great reminder of why I run.  It's for the freedom to explore and the joy that comes from nature!  I also had a blast learning to surf on Monday morning in Dunedin.  I managed to severely bruise my hip and left knee (clumsy me), so I was lucky to be able to do the Kepler Monday/Tuesday even though it was swollen. I tapered a bit later in the week for the race. If you can call 3 days a taper...
