I am struggling with my injury today. For one, it is so beautiful here and in my opinion, prefect running weather. Secondly, I feel good and feel like I could run. But here is the thing, yesterday, I couldn't stand straight until the early afternoon. Why is that? How could I feel so bad yesterday and so good today?
This has me baffled and I will talk to the therapist about it tomorrow. Am I doing something differently on those days that I feel so bad? I don't think so but who knows.
I was hoping to have a solid 5 mile base under my belt before I got into serious half marathon training. Now I am feeling nervous and afraid I won't have enough time. This is no small race that I am planning on doing either. It is the Nike Women's Marathon and I am doing it with Team In Training in San Francisco! There is a lot of things that come with this race. Training, fund raising and a trip across the country. I need to be certain I can do this. It is a huge commitment not just for me, but for my family.
Ok, so 6 to 8 weeks of PT brings me to the end of April/middle of May. Best case is I can run again in April, worse May. The half is October 14. What are your thoughts? Can I do this if all goes well?
Thank you, friends!
Run strong, think big!
