Glad to have such a great team

I am blessed to be working with such bright & caring individuals. I’m not completely over the low quad spasm yet, but it’s getting better quickly.

The worst part of every injury is the “What should I do? How can I get over this the quickest? Is it smart to keep running? If not, how long should I take off?” questioning that goes on. You know what I’m talking about. It’s only been a couple of days, but wow – a injury/setback of any kind almost takes more brain power & energy than training 90+ miles/week!!

I am lucky to be able to fully trust my coach and chiropractor’s advice. I can throw all of these questions at them & trust their answers & guidance on a path forward. It's not easy to find professionals that you can trust like I'm able to.

With that said, if anyone is ever in the Red Wing area & looking for a great sports injury guy, please look up Jim Patterson (chiropractor). He is simply the BEST. Extremely knowledgeable, and an uncanny way of simplifying everything down for you. Plus, just the most worldly thinker. Can’t say enough about him here to even begin to thank him for all he’s done for me.

Going to try a 5-6 miler tonight, hoping there isn’t a flare up or inflammation of any kind afterwards!!
