WHICH JOURNEY COMES WITHOUT CHALLENGES?

I guess none that involves me! After having some knee/IT band problems during my training for the Toronto Marathon back in October. I'm getting some intense calf pain in my left leg... I missed my 3 mile recovery run today to give it a break. I iced it a lot yesterday after my speedwork and some more tonight. Again, I just wish this is not something serious... I am thinking of doing 4 runs a week instead of 5 for the time remaining before the half. I know I will be running Hal Higdon's Novice II shedule for my May marathon so I will switch soon to 4 times a week anyway. I don't know why I feel like I am quitting something... And I don't want to be a quitter! But I guess I have to listen to my body as is telling me that running 5 times a week is just a bit too much right now. Especially in this weather....

Listen to your body and rest. You've got plenty of time to recover and train for May. The weather sucks anyways.

Yeah 5 days a week is a bit rough especially if you've had a bit of a layoff.

Weather sucks indeed HERE.... but Runningby you are in CALIFORNIA!! Lucky girl! My lifelong dream has been to move somewhere like San Franciso or Santa Barbara where the beach is at the corner of your apt..... we'll see.... ;-)

Arcaner, I think I'm going to switch to 4 days... I need a break it's only 3 weeks before the half!

Jason thanks for stopping by.
