Looking forward

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday. ~Author Unknown

I realized yesterday that if I can walk 6.2 miles over the next 2 days, I will be 0.1 miles over my May monthly miles by feet on July 15th. Now if that's not some motivation to get out there and keep moving forward, I don't know what is!

I get my first of three Euflexxa injections the morning of the 16th. That comes with some planned downtime, so the numbers won't go up too much after that.

Essentially, this is the base I have built for myself for when I come out on the other side in August ready to run. Will it be enough? Time will tell. Right now the plan is to run Duke City HM again in mid-Oct. That means when I start running, I'm headed straight into half marathon training. Yeeehah!

Crazy? Perhaps. Determined? Absolutely!

  1. Great quotes.

    I am positive that all of this time on your feet in the for of walking will ensure that you are as strong & ready as possible to resume (run) training next month! Fingers crossed!

  2. Your walking will help when you return to running. I hope you can get your 6.2 in to help you feel successful before your down time.

  3. Your walking will definitely help you when you get back to running. You are so smart not to just sit and let your fitness level go to crap. You're moving a lot and that is awesome! ;)

    I hope you can return to running soon! I'm sure that you will bounce right back into with all the walking you are doing.

  9. Best of luck with the Euflexxa injections. Sounds like those should do the trick for you. I know the cortizone shots are no fun, so hopefully these keep you away from more cortizone.

    'The limits of your subbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits' .... what a great quote! May need to break that one out at work sometime. I can certainly think of lots of situations where it applies.
