I am frustrated!! I just want my leg and hip to heal. I know I cant push too hard on it as it will just deal the healing.
It annoys me when I am told that people are talking about me....saying .. man she is always injured. I guess to outsiders it would appear that way. But those that know me, know that this is a year old if not longer injury that I have had to live with and train over due to having big international race commitments. I just kept pushing and nursing it and then pushing it some more until it finally stopped me in my tracks. As you will all remember the NZ Nationals 20km race - it stopped me dead in my tracks! It would be nice if more people were more interested if I was healing and looking after myself .. instead of running me down and mocking that I am not doing so well.
But .. anyhow...... I thought I would pop out and give the 5 km around the block another shot. I was really pleased that my shins didnt hurt this time. Yay, I hate that burning pain as you start back into it again. The body seemed to hold up ok. Heart rate is through the roof but I knew to expect that.
Tomorrow if my body is feeling ok I might give 8km a shot. Need to try and walk 10km in the next week so I can try to decide what if anything I will enter on May 6th.
5km waimea and vanguard
