I ask because I find myself once agani at an impass. My toe is not healing as quickly as it should (sprained it about a month ago), and I have been on the fence debating whether to just take some real time off with no running at all.
My April sucked - I did at least two stints of 5-7 days with just one milers in hopes of letting the toe heal. At times it seems better, but then a few days later (like this morning) it hurt again, so I cut the run short and only did a mile again.
Everything else feels pretty good - PF is gone now, just need this toe to heal so I can actually run. Funny thing is that after a run it doesnt hurt any more - might be stiff but pain is gone. I hurts in the morning when I get out of bed, which is making morning runs nearly impossible. So I run at lunch when it feels a bit better.
Just griping. I'll probably keep running and streaking, but it's been a crappy day/week so far so I needed to vent.
Run 1,800 miles
Do 10 minutes of core work every day
10 mile goal: 1:12:00 (Black Cat 10 miler - March)
Sorry you are struggling Jeff! I wish I had some advice to offer.
I am still going strong at 530 days. I will be running my 6th marathon this weekend (3rd during the streak) so hopefully I will have a good day. I am still happy with my decision to cut back 1 day a week -- the mile runs don't feel like much but I know they are helping my legs gets some rest.
Have you qualified for Boston? I want to interview you!
Sorry to hear about your troubles Jeff.
My streak is still going strong. No physical or mental complaints. Nice and steady 7 miles a day. Today was day 646.
