I am really excited about where I am now (except for some whining that I could be further if my arches would cooperate.) I had been training for a FULL marathon in October but that has been altered to a HALF (yes, the feet) and I am doing a 10 mile race this Sunday. Hardly the same as "I hope I can run the entire 5K."
So I decided to run this route and see where I am. Thank goodness I wasn't disappointed. I can imagine all this buildup to find out I'm slower or something. I can remember past runs where I was doing good to make it to the 2 mile marker. Others, that the hill from 2 - 2.7 did me in. Today, I just ran it with confidence that I could do it, no games of "to the next corner," "to the next light pole".....
Another milestone I noticed is that since the "onset of planned, regular running" on May 25th, I have surpassed the 300 mile mark. Having a schedule has done wonders for me!!
Tomorrow, I am visiting a sports PT to see what he thinks about my dumb feet. Wish me luck.
