I want to lay the facts all out there first.
Running is hard for me.
Running does not come natural to me.
It has taken me about three years to drop my pace a minute and a half/mile.
I have an injury that between two sports doctors, two physical therapists, and five years, still plagues me.
And it reared it's ugly head at Saturday's race.
So, because of all of the above, I am taking two weeks--two weeks--off from running.
This will probably be super hard for me, but I joined Run to the Finish's yoga challenge to help with the post-race stretching, and I'm going to try to hit the pool this week to start my tri training and keep up the cardio.
My hope is that this will give my leg some healing time.
I felt it necessary to open with honesty today.
Now. To the recap.
Saturday's race was good--I PR'd--but it was hard. Probably one of the hardest races I've ever run.
