Okay when I said “for now”, I meant for now.
I had a small procedure done today that will prevent me from running until next Friday. I can still walk, but nothing beyond that.
Sadly I didn’t get a final run in yesterday. I got up at 3:30 AM and got home at 6:30 PM. On top of that I had to be in town at 3:50 this morning, so as soon as I got home, I went to bed.
Any suggestions on what a running blogger should write while he can’t run? I’ve had one suggestion already, but I am open to more.
Up until yesterday my running has been slowly improving since the big marathon day. I got up to 4 miles on Wednesday and probably could have done more, but chose not to push it. The heat has been getting to me again. I haven’t run in 90+ degree weather for a couple of weeks and I can tell it has made a difference. Of course it is supposed to be a high of 77 degrees tomorrow and I can’t run. I guess I’ll have to sit and watch football. Darn.
TJ has helped me map out my running plan for the next 6 months. It is so nice to have him as a resource! My goal for my next marathon is going to be three fold.
- Under 4:00
- 3:30 (BQ)
It is nice to have several options to push for and with cooler weather just a month away, I’m excited to have new goals.
I’m jealous of all you marathoners tapering and preparing for your Fall marathons. I so enjoyed mine. I hope I can keep healthy and keep running long distance races. I really enjoy them.
Finally, a shout out to my running friend Neill (@BigBigGeek – bigbiggeek.wordpress.com) as he runs the Talladega Half Marathon Sunday. I’m so excited for him. If it weren’t for my current running situation (or lack thereof) I might think of running it myself – just for fun. Good luck and God speed Neill (Isa. 40:31).
[I just got a tweet from him asking for advice for a newbie half marathoner – It would be awesome if you all could go to his blog (linked above) and give him some encouragement and support. He is a great guy and really moving forward with his running!!!]
Sorry to be all over the place with this post. Now what am I going to write tomorrow. 🙂
