What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

Frustrated – that’s what I am at the moment. I just completed a three mile run. It was a struggle from the very beginning, but I pushed myself on if you want to call it that. I think I saw a turtle moving at a faster pace. I did run a few hills today, but I am frustrated with myself. Since I’ve started back running, I can’t seem to break the 11 min per mile pace. It is frustrating. I had a better run time when I was run/walking. I was in the 9 minute range when I would run, recover and then run again. Now that I am trying to run without walking any, my time has dropped significantly which is very frustrating. I am hoping that if I keep at it and add in some speed work and hill work out that my time and endurance will increase. I sure hope so.
