Bad Attitude

Sunday was my second real long run. According to my original plan I was supposed to do 17 but since I’m all screwed up now because of my shin I decided to do 15 and one half.

It went ok. We did just under a 9 min mile pace. My legs felt so heavy it just felt like a lot of work. My shin was achey, I was paranoid and I’m sure just a peach to be around. Sorry Diane, thanks for slugging it out with me.

I’ve been icing, ibuprofen, compression, the whole bit. Today was supposed to be an easy 4 and it sucked. I have dropped down from Hal Higdons advanced one plan (maybe that was a bit premature on my part)

And now I’m adjusting my long runs to this

Also shorting mid week runs and probably no speedwork. I just need to make it to Eugene feeling good and I swear to god better get a sub 4!
I mean according to good ole McMillan Calculator that sub 4 should have happened in October.

Sorry if the tone is a bit negative but I’m really annoyed. I don’t like it when things don’t go my way. I know I just got a PR in Tri Cities and yes I’m happy about that but that isn’t what I am training for; and frankly I should have PR’ed, I would have been pissed if I didn’t. People tell me I’m laid back and that statement confuses me. I’m not feeling like I’m laid back at all right now. So if your looking for rainbows and unicorns check back next week.
Do you get pissy when things don’t go your way? How do you handle it?

    Sometimes training isn’t roses….no need to fake it. Damn, we better look back at this and be stronger because of it!

  2. Sounds like someone needs a hug…:-) That many miles at that pace is awesome and I am very proud of you!! Sometimes you just need a breather, keep going you can do it!!
