Starting over…on occasion the EEOR comes out in me.

I’ve been here before. Starting over. This time it was bronchitis and a chronic right calf pull that I aggravated by running when I should not have. It’s been 5 days since I’ve run. Feels like an eternity.  2014 has been interesting to say the least.  A series of “Did Not Starts” for a variety of reasons – all legitimate but some preventable.  My current disappointment is the Philly Marathon.  I had signed up for it when registration opened.  My Fall Marathon – Things were going well, I was feeling good – long runs from 10 to 15 miles each weekend with an occasional 10+ during the week.  Felt that my endurance level was improving even through my pace is getting slower.



I have been walking around Cooper River the last two days (3.62 Miles) – I can do it at a brisk walking pace in about 55 minutes.  This routine will have to do for the foreseeable future until I can begin to gradually run again.  It’s not the end of the world and I am thankful that I can do what I can do but on occasion the EEOR comes out in me.

    Oh man, I know this feeling all too well. I hate being injured and trying to be patient. It truly is impossible. So glad you are able to walk that is usually my only solace when I am hurt.
