This should be about summertime lovin'... But unfortunately it's about my being in a funk. This has been my workout routine lately:
I seem to only be able to get one run in feeling okay and then am icing, massaging, and taking ibuprofen. I had a nice 10 miler last weekend but fought soreness in my Achilles all week. I didn't run during the week hoping to get it feeling better, but I "raced" on Saturday and really struggled.... It was six days between runs and still I am hurting so bad today (2 days later) that the thought of trying to move faster than a gimp makes me wince.
Yes... I am whining. I have been so focused on getting ready for a half this summer and my times are getting faster than they have been since I had kids - so it makes it extra challenging to be struggling like this. I'm beginning to wonder if a half marathon is in the cards for the summer or if I just need to take some extended time off my feet (running anyway) to let my foot heal up. *****sigh****
I'll be better adjusted about this once I've had a couple of days to process it. Tonight I'm just in a funk.
