Last week, I was supposed to start my training for the upcoming marathon season. As a seasoned runner, I had to listen to my body. I have issues with my body that are unexplainable in this moment. I have the privilege of health care and am able to go to specialist to figure out what is wrong with my stomach. The outcome is unsure but I will hopefully know soon.
This is a hard lesson for many runners. Whether you have been running for 20 years, 10 years, 2 years or 10 minutes. Listening to your body is the most important aspect to training.
My thought process is : ” I can run through anything.” In my heart I know, I can’t. I am unable. I have had multiple injuries to let me know otherwise.
This week’s update is a bummer. I have restarted my training with an easy week this week. I know that I am able to complete the Chi-town marathon. I just need to have more faith in the process of healing.
Here is my M & M update this week. I am hoping next week for a better report.
