I’m a wimp…

Distance: 3 mi.

Miles to go: 1975

Woke up Tuesday morning to the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning.  This, coupled with a temperature of 42 degrees was enough to get me to wimp out on the morning run.  I felt bad until the sky opened up one more time and I remembered that I’m still really tentative and cautious from the injury and the trail gets pretty snotty when it’s wet.  Anyway… I went back to bed.  With only a little guilt…

When I got off work it seemed that most of the rain had stopped so I decided to go run at a local park that has a concrete path but when I walked out the door I got hit in the face with rain and wind, for which I was not prepared (gear wise).  So I abandoned plan B and headed straight for the treadmill.  Three glorious miles later all my guilt went away.  I ran the majority of it at about a 9 minute pace and then pushed the last half mile down to 8:30.  Not fast (for me) but good enough for now.

I thought about running the Jay Dix 5/10K this weekend but I still just don’t think I’m ready.  Not that I want to run fast, because I don’t really care about that.  I’m just not comfortable yet and it’s supposed to be 38 degrees and rain/snow.  Not interested.  I still get twinges and can’t move quickly enough to recover from a stumble in the crowd so I think I’ll just wait and maybe look at doing an organized run in May.  It’ll happen.  I’m not worried about it.  I’m still just happy to be running again.
