Not good news to report on the running front today. In fact it’s a case of one step forward and about 10 steps back. My hammie is really sore as I discovered while trying to run 4km this morning. I struggled through 1km and was then reduced to walking because it was getting too sore to run.
So what to do? At this rate there is no way I’m going to be running a marathon in early November. Even blind Freddy can see that.
I have a back up plan and its now being implemented. I will follow a marathon walking program. This will be a challenge for me because I am not a walker. I am an ambler! And if I was to amble along in a marathon it could take me all day to finish. Not quite what I had in mind. So a training program will keep me in check with an eye on my pace.
So while its not what I had originally envisioned doing, and given the choice I wouldn’t be doing, my goal now is to walk NY marathon.
