"Life is always at some turning point."
Although my running is going relatively well, no run is completely without pain. The good thing is that the pain does not linger for long after my runs. However, I often feel a little pull or a little tightness where my injury
is was (groin). When I run, the pain comes and goes and there is always a feeling of cautiousness. I can't let myself go and just enjoy the ride; I'm hypervigilant and am alert to every little tug. Still, last Sunday when I finished my 15.5K I felt really good and I knew that despite some tightness and mild pain, I was good. Then, again this week, my 6K and my 11K were tough and left me wondering if I'd be okay. Yet, after two yoga sessions, I’m feeling good again. I saw last Sunday as a turning point, if it went well and I felt good, then I'd be okay for my marathon training. But, after my runs this week, I'm back to seeing THIS Sunday as the turning point. Will I be able to run 19K without hurting myself...can I then go on to complete my marathon training program. My body does seem to be healing even as I continue to push the mileage and I've come to believe that this body is not as fragile as I assumed. So, we'll see how it goes this Sunday...will it be a turning point?! :)
For some reason, I couldn’t get this posted yesterday – so, let me add that my 3K this morning went well and I’m feeling good about tomorrow’s long run. Fingers crossed!
