Got invited to join a team! Totally pumped and happy.
Had today my swimming lessons in preparation for the TM in Scotland. I put my head in the water with no fear after 37 years! Woah. However, it is one thing for this to happen with clear water, warm, and a teacher, and another one to jump into freezing water as well as muddy water. How cold IS the water actually (aside from the ice one?).
Also, got over my "trampled by elephants" after-run feeling and felt getting stronger. Bought a new pair of running shoes, all-terrain and I hurt the bast of my 5th metatarsal (peroneal tendon, I think). Anyone knows what is a proper running form, and better yet the best running shoes? I will be in DC next week, are there any "running clinics" that can watch you how you run? Are the Vibram (shoes with toes) a good idea to use for running? At the moment in crutches...will try to keep my cardio up as best I can by rowing. I am not giving up.
Tomorrow we do the jumping in the water (never done it in my life!)
A Tough Mudder in making.
