must get it together

It has been awhile but I am still here… up until this week I have been doing the bare minimum running wise- usually bettween 3-4 runs a week- this past week I have not run once…
My IT band has been SO tight- not actually hurting but feeling like it is going to snap- so I decided to lay off running-AND I slightly twisted my ankle (walking down the street!!!) and that is feeling stiff AND on top of that I probably only could have squeezed one run in anyway as I am in my final week at work and things have been kookoo. And then there are the 6 kids to tend to.
I am to run a 1/2 at The BMO in a couple of weeks- fingers crossed. And I have received a challenge from my neighbour and veteran marathoner to run the Royal Victoria October 10 and that gets me feeling a little pumped.
I got it all going on in my head- now if I could just get my body and the rest of my life to cooperate!

One thought on “must get it together

  1. One way to look at it is that when you do cross the finish line you’ll feel that much more amazing (and amazed) for having finished it with less training! Sort of like when you write an essay at the very last minute and you get an “A”. Yesss!
