I’m normally not a clock-watcher. But in an effort to let my Achilles calm down after the last bout of pain, I’ve not run in 12 days, and today’s the day. Just a few hours to go.
As always – discipline is my watchword. I’ve been doing my stretching, although I’ve laid off the strength work since the flare-up.
Today will be a simple 3-miler. I will not push the pace at all – nothing faster than 8:30.
If only I could just run without all the stupid thoughts that rehabbing runners everywhere always have swirling around in their subconscious.
I just want to run without doubt, without that lingering fear.
*sigh* One day, I’ll get there.
Plan. Persist. Prevail.
