I guess it's time to call a spade a spade. I am injured and it's keeping me from running. I can't run, so I will stop trying. There, I said it. Now I have to act on it.
I had so many plans for this spring and summer racing coupled with an unbelievable winter of training and loads of running buddies to rack up the miles with I just didn't want to see all the work go to waste. There doesn't seem to be a day that goes by without having to answer the question, "when is your next race?" I can now answer that without hesitation and just say, "i don't know, i'm not training right now."
So, I may be a bit edgy for a few days and I plan to fully cross train as much as I can just to keep some form of fitness, but let me tell you, I am a runner. I will always be and I will fight, once again, to get back to the sport I do love, even if it's full of frustration right now.
My week looked like this:
Monday: 24:00, walk home
Tuesday: 0, Chiro work done
Thursday: 8 minutes, walk home, massage after work
Friday: 0 miles
Saturday: 19:00 all running, oh, so sad...
Sunday: 24 minutes, walk home
*Game Over for now...
