I haven't posted anything this week as I've been applying the principle: if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. So, in short, I've not been feeling very good. (Running-wise, anyway. No actual life issues to worry about.) My left leg appears to be staging some type of rebellion. My hamstring has been squacky. Not necessarily tight, but somewhat achy. On Wednesday morning, I woke up with a shooting ache in my piriformis muscle, aka a pain in the butt. The other night as I climbed into bed, I had a throbbing ache in my ankle. And, all of this in my left leg. I've also felt really off, sluggish and labored on just about all my runs. So, yeah, I'm totally pumped to run 50k on Sunday.
That being said, the piriformis pain only lasted a couple days. And, this morning, my entire leg felt better. By that, I mean that I could walk normally all day. Over the past 10 days or so, walking normally was not in the cards. So, again, I'm totally pumped to run 50k on Sunday.
So, my head is adjusting my goals. My heart is not. Hopefully, my heart will make my head shut the hell up and then whip my body into submission.
