Was a great day today, though I still feel stiff in the left achilles and thigh. Weather was a bit balmy (56 degrees). It poured all morning, but I timed my run perfectly. No rain at all. Was warm to run, but felt good. Made it through the 25 minutes of running without stopping. C25K, W7D2.
I have totally re-evaluated how I need to do my training. I've emailed Allen, and hopefully I can correspond with him and try to figure out how to apply his program to mine. I realize I have races coming up that I may not be ready for, so I'll have to walk when I need to, but I have to figure out how to increast my mileage, while doing these races, and stay injury free. I HAVE TO LEAVE MY EGO/COMPETITIVENESS AT THE DOOR!!!!!!!!
I really messed up. I should have started back in September, with no races, and 4 months of just base building, starting with just walking and working my way up to C25K, and so on.
I'm am not giving up, I'm just stating the facts. I'm a little behind the eight ball. But I will get there!!!!!!!!!! First priority is injury free!!!!! Second is slowly building up the mileage.
