Warrior-Dash...Ready Or Not!!

Monday, September 05, 2011

Well it is near time to get with this Warrior-Dash program next weekend 9/10/11 & 09:30 AM. It seems so long ago and a grand idea when I signed-up last Jan 2011 for the event. I was in decent running shape then. Since signing-up for the race my left knee has had problems and my shoulders have problems. I have had shots in both but does not seem to help much. My intense training for the event has come to a standstill for several months. Two weeks ago at the beach I started running and the knee and shoulder appears to have held up fine. I have been testing out running on pavement and the knee seems to be holding up.

I will start the race and I will long it takes may be up in the air. I will do my best and hope to make a decent showing. Here is the Website and for the video scroll down a little and hit the speaker button for sound .

    Have fun and don't push yourself into more injuries. At least it won't be raining, hope it isn't too hot for you. Can't wait to hear about it, and pics? I'm looking forward to the Pints to Pasta 10K on 9/11/11.

    Good luck with your race! They just held a Warrior Dash here where I live in Colorado. It always looks fun. Maybe I'll try it next summer. :) emoticon

    Hey Chuck- just taking the step to sign up and follow through with the Warriors Dash is quite a feat! Knowing you have injuries and still following through takes a lot of determination, dedication, and courage- so go have FUN and make the most out of the experience.

    I've been experiencing pain in my right knee since I ran my last 2 5k events back in May/June and have tried to throttle back on my workout. I know how frustrating it can get knowing where your fitness level was at one point. The thing is to take your time and get through it one step at time. YOU CAN DO IT! emoticon

    Hey Chuck,

    Will be cheering you on long distance buddy...
    Does a knee brace or support help??

    Good luck,

    I had never heard of this it looks quite a challenge and I look forward to your blog after the race. Slow and steady, do not force anything and hopefully your body will not let you down. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Nooooo not crazy, maybe a little off but what the heck. I just finnished a 2300 mile dual sport motorcycle ride down the Continental Divide using the trails and back roads. We were lucky that nothing but the bikes got damaged. All three in the adventure were pushing 70 years of age. Actually I'm about to catch that year. Aches and pains, oh yes, but one hell of a great time. emoticon

    I'll be thinking of you, just be careful because it is supposed to be very hot this weekend.

    (Even at Blue Lake for our family party, I'm a little concerned.
    I can't wait to get back down to Shady Cove and hang out in the a/c!)

    Have fun during the run!

    According to the map that seems like one long race. Wishin you the best of luck. let us know how it goes. You might wear one of those velcro braces that keep your knee in place as you pound the apvement.
