If you are not in the mood for a bit of negativity, do not read any further as this going to be a whinging whiney post 😡
I basically have not done a decent run since the 8km Melbourne Zoo run on the 7th February. I did go to the gym a couple of days ago and did a tready run of 4kms split into two runs with x-training and bike in between but I can’t really count that I feel. I have been unwell and am now on anti-biotics which have made me feel so much better. I feel as though I am getting a cold now just to add more assault to the injury 🙄
I thought I would start fresh next week but I don’t know where to start off now. I was doing two 5km runs plus increasing my long run and had I stayed on track I would have been at 10kms this week. My foot is still niggly even though I haven’t really ran and the instep is tight. I have been icing and massaging which doesn’t feel as though it is doing anything. I am so over the whole injury scenario as well as this weather with its relentless humidity. The last time I ran was the ugly, ugly run (I don’t know how to link that post) and it has left me slightly apprehensive about running in heat but if I don’t get out there I am losing more time before R4K. Believe me if I could run early in the morning I would be doing it but there is no way I can and in the evening that humidity seems to be hanging around.
So to get back on track I need to find a plan to not only get back on track but to find my mojo because I can’t find him at the moment either. I don’t know how far back in training I need to go with long run and quite honestly at this stage I feel as though I am going to be walking the R4K!! I would love to get down to some R4K training runs because I think this would really help me but with my pain in the butt demanding family (sorry, I do love them all dearly 😆 ), I can’t see it happening.
So there you have it! I really hope by next week the weather is a little kinder and I can find some kinda mojo to get me started again. I also think I need to go back to Pod although the last time I was there he mentioned something about an operation on foot which quite frankly I let the comment go right over my head as I ain’t going to that party!!!! Obstacles, obstacles and more bloody obstacles!! Sorry about that but I did warn you it was a negative whinging whiney post 😉
