For example, today I ran 11K. The old program suggested 13K, but as I was running, I realized that I was still tired from my half last weekend and I decided to turn around early. Also, at one point I was feeling pressure under my middle toes. I was wearing my injinji's and the sock seemed to have bunched up. Normally, I would tough it out to avoid stopping during a long run, today, I stopped (twice) and fixed the sock...and then felt much better as I continued my run and avoided causing pain and possibly a silly injury.
This time, I will not put unnecessary pressure on myself, because I know for a fact that:
Even if I don't get every run in I'll be fine.
If I stop early sometimes, I'll be fine.
If I take bathroom or sock or shoe or clothes or fueling breaks, I'll be fine.
If I choose to cross-train some days instead of run, I'll be fine.
If I choose to do a bit more sometimes, I'll be fine.
This time, I hope to enjoy the process fully, trust my judgement and believe!
Thanks for your wonderful support and encouragement!
