I've got my head back in the game and I've been doing my long runs for the past two weeks - but I'm STILL sore from my 9 miler on Sunday. NOT a good sign. Of course, I have yet to give myself a true rest day. Starting tomorrow I won't be running until Sunday.
I went out today to get in 4. I ended up getting in 2 and I walked for close to a half a mile. My legs are fatigued.
|I think compression pants might work better if I actually RAN in them!|
Now it's in my head. Doubt. Uncertainty.
Bottom line is - I'm running no matter what. The question is - how fast and will I completely make a fool of myself. (why didn't I sign up for the 5 miler!?)
I need to get this race behind me - and I need to get some confidence from it. The half is 4 weeks away. Essentially 3 more training weeks.
I'm getting in my own way at this point. As SUAR says - I need to stop complaining - stop worrying - and just SHUT UP and RUN! (easy for her to say - she's an awesome runner!)
