I “ran” for the first time today in a week. It consisted of a walk/run of 4 miles.
Verdict = pulling the plug on summer races.
Both SF half and America’s Finest Half.
I was convinced of SF half last week, but not until today did it register that I would not feel fit for AF. I understand the “go out there and give it a shot” mentality, but that’s what screwed me over at See Jane Run. I’ve replayed the moment where I mentally went ka-put at mile 3 in that half and play the “what if” game if I had a DNF instead of a finish with an injury. I know what you are thinking and I cannot play that game. In hindsight, that would have been the best move and I learned that lesson the hard way.
SO yeah. I wanted to put that out there. Now there is a HUGE weight off of my shoulders. I can really begin to recover and give myself the time I need to do so.
That was tough to admit. Virtual hugs appreciated.
Good thing I have a beer (s) and a ticket to the Giants/Red Sox game with Naomi to cheer me up 🙂
