Guess what? There's no time for rest in Hansons. Unless it's a Wednesday.
So what's wrong? Well, I AM FREAKING OUT!!! Every little ache, pain, and niggle has me worried that I am either going to have to skip a run (and then not make my goal at the marathon) or that I'm going to run through something I shouldn't and end up on the injured list and a big fat DNS come September.
As runners, we are always told to "Listen to your body," and I DO! I listen to my body so intently that every little thing I feel is cause for alarm. It's driving me nuts.
I don't know if I can do this for 15 more weeks...
Long runs? Easy.
Speed work? Doable.
Tempo runs? Got it.
Not freaking out about every little bodily sensation? IMPOSSIBLE!!!!
I just wanted to let you in on how I've been *mentally* with my running lately. Sure, I have been doing all the workouts, but I have been worrying. A lot.
I don't want anyone to ever thing my life/running/anything is all sunshine and roses. It's not! I hope I don't depict it that way on my blog. I don't like to be Debby Downer, but I do like to share a well rounded version of what goes on in my world...
Runners: How do you not freak out about your body all the time??? I need help!!!!
