I kind of thought that I would be able to make the transition to running more smoothly than it appears I am going to be able to. I've run about almost 30 miles since I've been back in Juneau but it just hasn't felt good at all. I do feel some progress in my muscles getting use to being used for running again, but my overall strength is still way down. I can go out and trudge through 5 or 6 miles easy enough but it doesn't feel very good and I couldn't possibly run fast right now. It's just not there yet.
This means that running Crow Pass as a race is almost certainly not going to happen. I'd like to still go up to Anchorage and run it as a training run but I'm not even sure my body is going to allow for that. My main focus now needs to be on eating and sleeping well to give my body every possible chance to recovery as soon as possible so as to try to get myself as much serious training between now and The Wasatch 100 0n September 6 th. Suddenly September seems so near on the horizon.
