TOTR is about a race you'd want a do-over. I really would have to choose the Eugene half, but change my training. If I knew then what I knew now, my strength training would've been quite different to try to avoid my battle with ITBS. If I knew about Pure Barre, and doing body weight exercises correctly, and if I knew my body was out of alignment and to get a chiropractor, I'd say everything in that training cycle would get a do-over.
I thought I was doing training correctly since I didn't have an issue during my first two half marathons, but the Eugene half proved me wrong.
Speaking of strength training, I had my annual exam yesterday, and I've gained 4 pounds. I'll attribute that to my strength training because I know I've gotten stronger. I had another 3.5-mile run last week, without Rock Tape this time, so I know I have to be getting stronger. The best part is my clothes still fit, so it has to be new muscle, right?
