I am going to approach this just like I did last weekend. Slow and steady.
Last week marked my first full week of training since I decided that I wanted to try for a spring full marathon. And last week I hit all four of my runs. That also meant though that there was quite a jump in my mileage from the prior week to last week. And my IT band has been protesting all week because of it.
This week I was scheduled for 3, 5, 3, 10. I did 5, and 2, and I will try 10. But I will be smart. And I will listen to my body and if it doesnt feel right, I wont continue.
But I know that typing that is easier than it will be to actually stop tomorrow if things feel off. But I need to be smart.I need to be smart.
I need to be smart. And listen to my body.
Can you tell I am trying to convince myself and just make sure that is stuck in my head?
The weather for tomorrow looks amazing. Check it out:
30 degrees and sunny at 8am? Yes please.
And now, me and Hercules are off to bed. He is all tuckered out from his two mile walk this afternoon.
