I run three times a week with a running club and have been so proud of myself.
Even on Thursday when I wasn't feeling all that great I slugged through and got it done... if I had been alone I'm sure I would have quit before I was finished.
I have a mantra that I repeat when it gets hard.
"March 2014, March 2014, March 2014...."
Simply translated ...
"I can do this, I will do this, I can do this, I will do this...."
Sadly I have to report that I have hit my first hurdle.
At least that is what I think happened.
I awoke last night to a nagging pain in my left ankle.
It hurts like a son of a... but I don't know what I did...
hence the hurdle hitting....
in my dreams....
I was suppose to run this morning... but I cannot, I will not.
Not wanting to do further damage to whatever it is that has been done...
So ice and rest it is.
Hopefully tomorrow I will be back out on the road again.
In the meantime. I hate this. I WANT to run!
