Running: Days 80, 81 and 82
As you can see from the headline, I haven’t been keeping up with blog posts like I should. I aborted my run on day 80, went for a nice fast run on day 81 and went for a run with Cassandra and Luna on day 82.
Day 80 was supposed to be a 20-mile run. Unfortunately my leg wasn’t having any of that. I tried to go out twice and failed miserably both times. I was concerned about it because the pain was sharp and wouldn’t go away. I decided to turn back instead of risking a more severe injury.
For some reason my leg felt great on day 81. I have no idea why a day of rest cured everything, but I’m happy it seems to be getting better.
Today’s run (day 82) is my favorite of the year. I went out for a short 2 miles with Cassandra and Luna. It felt like we were a pack running through the night. It was wonderful and I’m happy we were able to do it.
I’m going for 4 miles tomorrow, likely in the morning. I’m hoping this week and the marathon next weekend will be the start of me staying on schedule with my planned training. I am not meeting my goal of staying injury free, which isn’t helping with consistency at all. I think I can get back into the schedule fairly quickly based on how I feel now.
