Wow it’s already the end of December and thus time to Runfess with Marcia. This End of the year Runfessions is not how I had hoped my year would wrap up. But, life rarely goes according to plan. That’s what keeps things interesting right?
End Of the Year Runfessions
I Runfess...I am not ending the year where I had hoped to with my running. My injury in late October really threw me for a curve and pretty much derailed many of my race plans for the end of the year and perhaps the beginning of 2020 as well. Part of me knows that injuries come with long term running “careers” (for lack of a better word) and that eventually we all battle them at some point or another. Part of me is just really annoyed and upset that I had to miss so many races.
I Runfess...I am making lots of progress with my return to running. I am up to 3:1 intervals. I did not have any pain while on my last run and just a little lingering soreness the next day. That is progress for sure albeit a little slower than I would like it to be. I really have no idea how long it will take me to get back to “regular” running with my group. Although I am back to starting with them, I pretty much lose them after 3 minutes.
I Runfess…I am not sure what to do about the Rock N Roll half marathon in New Orleans on February 9th. We have a group of about 10 of us going down to Nola with our husbands for the weekend. I am thinking about running the 10K instead which is the same day but in a different start location. Part of me (the crazy part?) is thinking of just trying to get through the half using intervals. I have another 6 weeks or so to figure it out so we shall see.
