I was sad this morning when I woke up, of course it was a nice morning for a run, but I was completely exhausted just from a shower, so no running today. I am feeling a little anxious I am getting so off schedule this week. The past few weeks have been tough, I was rolling along pretty well, but the past few weeks the pain in my feet really started increasing. I don't have that many weeks to go, but the demands increase greatly now. I feel like phase 2 isn't going as well as I hoped, but I am trying to relax and focus on what I have accomplished.
I figured out during phase 1 trying to sneak a fourth run in wasn't really working for my feet, so three runs became my focus for the phase I am currently in.
Phase 1 started back in June and this is how it went...
I did have issues with the snooze button a few times and wouldn't have time to get all my miles in. A few runs were cut short due to foot pain, but overall, I really did feel stronger at the end of these eight weeks. These eight weeks built my confidence up after several months off running and gave me confidence to keep pushing on.
How did you deal with sickness during a critical point in training?
When was the last time you were so sick you couldn't get out of bed?
