However, this weekend there were no 20 mile training runs. Just an easy paced stroll with my best buddy, Cooper. And, that’s okay. I can’t go hard all-the-time [TWSS].
But, I have some serious race envy brewing after reading race reports from some of my favorite runners. I haven’t put in the training to even think about a half marathon, let alone a marathon.
Running isn’t easy for me right now.
|When did this become difficult?|
While I’m not a heel striker [I think], something is biomechanically crappy. I attribute it to too many miles, too soon. I caught the running bug, thrived off the high.
My feet are tender after runs of 6 miles or less. What’s up with that?! I used pump out long mileage with minimal muscle soreness. I’m frustrated. I’m mad at my body. I shouldn’t be “broken”.
In preparation for my run with Harmony, I taped my feet with a sample of KT Tape I had leftover from the RNR Las Vegas expo. I felt relief and support using just the 2 strips. KT Tape feel free to send me another sample (or 20).
I was so thankful for time with my running buddy. She is the one that introduced me to long distance running and
forced encouraged me to run my first race.
Harmony participated in the start of Run Across America to raise awareness for young adults facing cancer. Her husband is battling cancer now and will need your prayers as he undergoes his second scan in 3 months. Please pray for a clear scan.
Harmony’s husband will never run, jog, jump, or trot again. He can walk short distances, but the titanium rod in leg limits his mobility. A little plantar fasciitis really isn’t so terrible, is it?
When and where is YOUR next race?
How do you pick races (location, cost, distance to travel, etc.)?
Have you ever experienced a nagging injury?
