I had a pretty good mid distance run today 7 miles. Not really a long, but I was nervous about it, mostly because 7 just seemed so different than 6.
It went a lot better than expected. I even had mile 3 at what would be considered a good “tempo run pace” for me. The air was crisp and cool, the sun which has been absent most of the week was blinding and I loved it.
I just got an interesting coaching email as is par for the Sunday Course.
it will be a great week this week. believe that you can do it, and that you will be healthy. See yourself ‘getting there.’
I feel perfectly healthy these days. I’m running pretty well. Nothing major hurts. In general I am handling the workouts.
In my mind I wasn’t thinking of myself as still injured or recovering.
I see now that in his mind, I’m just barely able to train again, and not very seriously either.
So, I suppose I’ll be enduring the worried looks for several more weeks, maybe even months.
I do have an issue seeing myself getting anywhere beyond the 10K. So we’ll see how I feel next week…
