I’m nervous about this long run today. We are scheduled for 6 miles. I know my ankle won’t hold up that far. I am hoping for at least 4, but considering it already hurts and all I’ve done is wake up I’m worried.
I’m still getting up and meeting with my running group because they keep me motivated. I hope I don’t let the social pressure make me push too hard, too fast, or too far. I must remember to listen to my body and do what is right for me. Luckily, today’s route has two easy places to turn around if I want to do either 3 or 4 miles. Also, we are running right past my parent’s neighborhood, so if something really terrible happens I have an easy way home.
Hopefully, I will be able to get 4 solid miles in (some running, some walking). I worry about falling too far behind in training since eventually I won’t be injured and there is a half marathon in October to contend with. I just have to keep working at PT and move towards recovery as fast as I can.
