Adios, Dallas Marathon
Well, I had to officially drop out of training for the Dallas marathon. I did everything I could for the ole leg- took meds, ran in the water during the week to stay off of it, iced it; but for the 3rd week in a row, when i tried to do my long run, i ended up hobbling and crying. So, after some discussions and wake-up calls, I have realized that I need to give my leg a chance to heal. Its getting worse and today even as I hobble around, I know I'll do a marthon, darnitt. Just not on December 9, 2007.
Luckily, I have an amazing and encouraging husband who reminded me that the training wasn't a waste. It was good and I pushed myself and enjoyed the challenge and mileage. He's a good one. Now, I'm going to spend the next few weeks with no running and all swimming and strength training. Good times!
