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…

Perspective

This is my drop back week... talk about perspective. I remember when I started running longer distances how 10 or even 8 miles seemed like a really really long way.  Now my 11.5 miler tomorrow doesn't seem so daunting. It was supposed to be 13, but my running buddy and I decided to pick up the pace on the last half of the long run. Since her plan calls for 11, and we are picking up the pace, I decided to drop mine back to 11.5.

We plan to run the first half of the run as normal, slower easy pace. Make our midway pit stop (bathroom and refill any necessary water bottles). Then on the last half of the run (the goal) is to pick up the pace.

I have plans for a spa day after this long run. So I am super excited for tomorrow.
