Catching Up – Operation 165 Weeks 10 & 11

Operation 165 Week 10 and 11

I’m a little behind in my weekly updates.  It feels like I blinked and two weeks passed!  I’ll keep this post brief and just give you the details of my workouts for weeks 10 and 11 of Operation 165.  I’ll be posting more about my recent experience at the Go! St. Louis Marathon in my next post!

Week 10 proved to be quite challenging for me.  I was fighting off a cold and my body was run down.  I need to do a better job resting and getting in my immediate post-workout recovery carbs.  Sometimes this is easier said than done.

The first relay runner for MS Run the US starts on April 12!  Be sure to follow us at @msruntheus or #msruntheus.
