For me, the past six months have not been much fun. To summarize:
- I got injured.
- Took off six weeks
- Returned to running too soon and developed chronic IT band tightness and pain.
- Been averaging 12 miles of very slow running per week.
- Did one long run of 15 miles.
If I asked any one of my friends mentioned above they would likely tell me I'm over trained for such a short distance. "It's only a stinkin' marathon!" they may say. Actually, I received a text message from KZ the other night. It was short and to the point. It simply said, "Training is for wussies."
I think I just made up my mind.
