Wheeler Machinery employee and Orriant participant, Ron Fehr, won't let anything derail his training for the Boston Marathon. Ron shares how he made it through the last few weeks.
December wasn't the best month for my training. The first 3 weeks were incredible and I was even ahead of my goals. I then suffered a shin bruise which made it impossible to run, and nearly impossible to walk. On top of that, I was put down with flu-like symptoms for 3 weeks. Needless to say, it was rough. My mileage goals and speedwork goals were not met, but that's okay. It happens every now and then. I have finally been able to run again without pain in my leg and am excited to have a great January!
