A Small Delay in Training

I really should have known that I would have some lingering effects from the Marsh Creek Race on Sunday. But I felt good Sunday so I thought Monday would be fine. Well I was wrong, who would have thought. Yesterday and today I have been through some foot, shin, back and butt pain (a pain in the butt with a pain in the butt, hmmm). The trail courses play some havoc on my body. Foot pain is a left over from a martial arts class two weeks ago when I came down too hard on a couple of techniques.

The delay is bummer as I was to start my half marathon training course today: but I didn't. I had a great plan I put together, but as Tom and Amy at The Runner's Lounge have previously posted, plans are great but execution is what really counts. Post race recovery is something I should have given myself three days for, a mistake on my part. I am just a rookie at this running thing so I guess mistakes are expected. It is really just aches and pains so I will probably be able to get kick started tomorrow or Thursday.

Tonight is my martial arts call I hope my legs feel up to it and tomorrow is my monthly weight check.

Small delays are gods way of reminding us superhero runners that we are human too. Thanks for the call out - I really enjoy reading along!
