Back in July I had an injury on my neck that resulted in stitches. The cut was deep so I had to let my neck muscles heal which cut my running instantaneously. I logged less than 10 miles in that month and they were slow, painful miles. Although tonight’s 5k involved walking and hurt when breathing, I was very happy with a sub 28 minute 5k.
I have right at 9 weeks until my first marathon, which is worrisome for me. I have reevaluated my goal of 4:17:00 to 4:45:00 in light of unplanned training cut. I’m pushing through and want to cross that finish line so bad.
