Somebody asked me via email: How's Your Running Going?

So I wrote this to them:

I am trying to regain fitness that I have slowly lost since June 2007. Though I ran races after injuring both my achilles tendons after that, most notably the Escarpment Trail Run and NYC marathon, both were on minimal mileage and pool running. I ran only 1X per week between NYC and January 2008, and only about 2 or 3X per week so far this year. I skied 30 days this winter. For the last two weeks I have added cycling and will probably train like a triathlete, adding swimming once June rolls around. My plan is to keep running workout frequency low, but have each running workout fairly long & easy. I will run races as my speedwork, and get in some long trail races as soon as I can fit them into my schedule. The only races I am 100% sure I am attending are

Towpath Training Run 34 miles
President's Cup
RVRR Summer Series XC
Escarpment Trail Run 30K
River to Sea Relay

Sorry to hear about your injury.

How did you wind up hurting both of your achilles, if you don't mind my asking?

I basically explained it in this blog entry.

¿Hablas espaƱol? Estudio a la "site", lo tiene muchas cosas buenas de las idiomas.

I hope that was right :D Generally I can get my point across, but I'm sure it's not without many mistakes, lol.

Bummer to hear about the injuries.

I was training like a triathlete and for a few years and decided to try a triathlon race. And now I'm a triathlete and loving all the training and racing. It's too fun.
