A running blog, of sorts
You shoulda stood in bed, as we used to say in New York. Glad you're keeping an open mind about Nagano, no sense going there to run a lousy race.
sleep on it for a couple of days scott. trust your gut feeling - you'll know yourself what the best course of action is.
I couldn't resist checking out the Nagano course. She's a real beauty Scott. Looks fast and packed with history. You could treat it as part of your comeback. Set yourself a modest yet challenging time. Finish with plenty in the tank. What a confidence boost for races yet to come.
Thanks for the lip synching problem Scott - you had me nostalgic for those dubbed Italian westerns I used to watch as a kid.If you don't get back your mojo and/or the forecast is bad, cut your losses, rest up and keep training for the next one. BTW, might be worth a blood test to check your iron & thyroid function.
