I may have mentioned my desire to run another half marathon. I may have also mentioned my desire to run one in early March. Now… I think not.
While I’m generally a believer in the idea, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” I must admit that I’m also a firm believer in, “Stupid is as stupid does.”
I’ve been running three days per week for a month or two now in order to get ready for “official” training, which was supposed to start last week. Given my minor but significant foot pain over the weekend, I couldn’t complete my first long run. As you can imagine, that’s a problem.
I’m a fighter. I have no doubt that I could work on my foot exercises, keep on training, and push through the pain. However, after dealing with physical therapy back in August, I can say it would be stupid to start a plan now, no matter how badly I want it.
I’m not happy about it, (#prideissues) but I think it will make me stronger to not complete another half this spring. Mentally stronger, that is. God only gave me one body, so I better take care of it, right?
It’s not like I’m totally throwing in the towel. I had a bangin’ full-body workout yesterday and sweat fest on the step mill. Plus, there’s always next year!
