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…

Well my goal usually always to PR and I really really want to break 26:00. But the main goal for this race was to just run strong and not give up on myself. I once again started out too fast (8:00 for the first mile). So I'm seriously going to have to work on that. And I allowed myself to slow down a little too much during the middle of the run, but overall I didn't give up and I kept going. My official time was 27:29 with a chip time for 27:25. At first I didn't think it was that humid. But the farther I ran, the more humid it felt. Overall I feel pretty good.

Since the race, I've looked over my training schedule. I'm going to try to tweak a few things and see if that makes any difference. I'm frustrated that I'm getting farther from my goal instead of closer. So I'm going to change up a few things this week and run another 5K this weekend to see if there is any difference. But I'm looking forward to a 4 Mile run before work in the am.

  2. Have fun on your 4 mile run before work. Do you currently do any type of speed work out? Something that might help out is to do 400s, 800s, and mile repeats. Just a suggestion. I started doing those once a week, well, currently I am doing tempo runs for my half training, but when I was doing the speed sessions, they helped tremendously. Best wishes and success in your nailing down this 5k thing.
