Run baby, run! (take 2) – Back from injury!
I’m back, or at least I hope so!
February wasn’t my lucky month. After I finally started to enjoy running and saw the first results of my 10k race training, I got shin splints followed by a bad cold.
Basically I didn’t run for almost a month, and since I started running in November, I lost about 25% of my total training.
I was ready to come back for a while, craving to run and getting upset for the time I was wasting, in top of everything, because of the cold.
I bought new shoes specifically for my feet, like most of you suggested me (btw running shoes should be more fashionable! Yes, I know. Sorry) and I stepped back on the treadmill.
If I have to be honest it feels I have lost even more than 25%. My cardio is totally off. I was approaching the 50 minutes run, and now it’s hard to finish 20 minutes!
Yes, I know, it was only the first day… it takes time…. whatever.
Anyway, I’m not writing to complain about the time I waisted in the last month, or the energy and effort I lost for no being consistent with the training. I’m writing because I’m back.
I want to run this race, and I will. I’m strong, I know I am, so I can do it.
It will take more work and time that it was supposed to, but that day, when I will pass the finish line, it will be all so worthy.
Now, that said, let’s be serious!
……..PEOPLE…… PLEASE HELP ME!!!!! My cardio is totally OFF!!!!
