Sooo, my leg…
It isn’t really better.
It also isn’t all that bad. It’s a bit hard to tell what exactly is going on with it.
I ran 2 miles today and struggled with all sorts of little niggles here and there, the intense heat and a feeling of frustration. I never settled into a rhytm, I was just so iffy about the leg.
I suspect in part too that I was frankly tired of training. I had no races on the horizon and it seemed I was just putting in these huge mileage weeks, and not getting any results, just getting EXHAUSTED.
So I’ve now done about 2 weeks of pool jogging.
But there is no impact so you bones, joints, ligaments etc, don’t really get the workout they need.
So I am feeling the need to get back on the pavement. I am about 16 weeks out from my first half marathon of the season. Our Season starts in October.
I need all of the 16 weeks to try for a PR, and I want about a 10 min PR. I think I can get it, but…I’m not really sure.
So this leg is all tangled up, but we’ll see how things go.
