Coming back from a injury sucks.
I have been hurt for two weks and unable to run. About 3 weeks ago I decided to turn a easy 3 mile run into a hard run and hurt myslef. This was just dumb not warming up before the workout and running hard on a easy day.
I hurt my gluteus maximus.
Yes! This injury has kept me from running and delay my training. I had the same injury about two years ago with a IT band injury that cost me about 5 weeks of training. I pay for this in the marathon race this was the only year I did not PR in the derby festival marathon.
Monday comeback day:
I was happy to just get out and run some miles on Monday 12, 2018. Man! I love to run and this has became mylife. With no girlfriend I have made running my girlfriend. Please don’t judge me! The injury is still there and hurt after about a mile of running. I would say my body is about 70 percent heal.
My Race is April 28, 2018:
The good news is that I still have time and this injury didn’t happen 30 days before the race. The bad news is I don’t know if I have a enough miles to break 3hrs in April. This is my goal after BQing last year. I have a strong base beacuse of running all year round.
Sub 3 Challenge:
Yes! This is not easy for a person like me that works two jobs and don’t run 50 miles a weeek. My PR is 3hrs 8 min so I am in the ballpark! This would feel so good to break 3 in April. I am going to focus more on the non- runnning things like mental training, fueling, strength training. I will just have to trust my running base and focus on the faster workouts and 18 and 20 mile long runs. If you have any tips for me plaese leave a comment on my blog.
