As so quaintly put by Scobie in reference to my "fretting" of which IM course to get killed on. And he's right. At the end of the day, 140.6 miles is 140.6 miles. There is no hiding that there is going to be a lot of suffering regardless of which course I do.
Right now, although Coach is saying to do IMLP, but I think IMMT might be a better venue as it would be more family friendly (in case you don't know, I have a 7.5 year old, 5.5 year old and an almost 4 year old).
Also it appears that several fellow bloggers are thinking about IMMT. Misery loves company as I always say. Most of them have young families around the same age so they could hang out together for the day.
On the injury front, my shin splints have almost healed but I can still barely walk as there is another problem with the bottom of my foot
With this common foot condition, one or more of the metatarsal heads become painful and/or inflamed, usually due to excessive pressure over a long period of time. It is common to experience acute, recurrent, or chronic pain with metatarsalgia. Ball-of-foot pain is often caused from improper fitting footwear, most frequently by dress shoes and other restrictive footwear. Footwear with a narrow toe box (toe area) forces the ball-of-foot area to be forced into a minimal amount of space. This can inhibit the walking process and lead to extreme discomfort in the forefoot.
Marathon training sure takes a toll on the body.
Muskoka Long Course (June 26th) is highly doubtful.
