Chicago Marathon Training, W14D3: 8 miles
So, I’m not going say that I found my groove again or some shit. Because we all know how wary I am of jinxing myself.
But.
I knocked those motherfucking miles the fuck out. Not fast, by any means. I’m leaving my pseudo-speedwork by the wayside for a bit while I keep tabs on this arch thing. Which, by the way, didn’t start to hurt until midway through my run and then wasn’t nearly as bad as it has been. Night and day from yesterday to today. I can’t even with this weird injury anymore. I am henceforth rededicating myself to the Church of Foam Rolling and Self Torture to hopefully keep it manageable until Chicago. And maybe if I’m very lucky birthday fairies will bring me some dollars for a sports massage, though by then it will almost be too late for it to really do me good.
tl;dr I felt awesome today at running for the first time in a long-ass time.
