Houston...we have a problem

Houston...we have a problem

Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry

Yeah, I know.  Major cliche there but it really does justice.  The Houston half is January 14th.  It is now December 12th.  I have not run since December 2nd due to the pain in my you-know-what leg.  At this point, using my engineering background, there is a 0% chance of sub 1:40.  50/50 chance I'll be running the darn race - at all.  It's time to be realistic and it just may not be in the cards.  I'll know more soon when my dad comes up this weekend [he's a podiatrist] but as the days pass, the less positive I feel about it.  It stinks but the larger picture must be kept in mind for 2007: sub 3:40.   Worst case scenario? I have a 4 day break from NYC and lose my race entry fee.

On that note, I signed up for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in Washington, DC on April 1st.  I missed it last year due to being involved in the year of the wedding. 

Congrats to all that raced in the 10K this past weekend.  I had a great time cheering, even if it was a bit bittersweet knowing I couldn't be out there.

That's all for now - things are pretty "bleh" overall with life in general right now.  Work is pretty busy and running me a bit ragged.  However, I did have an awesome Monday night as I met a friend to skate in Bryant Park followed by checking out the store holiday windows. 

Not exactly an uplifting entry but that's life.

  • *hugs* I hope you feel better.
    When things are less hectic for the both of us (i'm in the middle of finals and in panic mode right now) we really need to get that hamburger we've been saying we would for the last year and a half...
  • More *hugs* here. I've had pain in my left foot for a while now, so I know how frustrating it can be. I'm also hating work right now so I feel you on that, too.

    I was very amused to see the CB10miler on April Fool's Day!
  • sorry about the leg thing. i'm sure you'll be back out there soon. even if you have to adjust some of your short term racing plans, at least you're smart enough to keep the big picture in focus.

    thanks for reminding me about bryant park. (it's been so nice i should have gone there earlier this week.)

    finally, nice banner! i'm not sure how new it is - i guess i've been reading you mostly on bloglines.
  • injuries suck! I hope you get better soon. like you said, at the very least, you'll get a nice trip down to houston.

    sorry about not signing up for the cherry blossom run this year :( My ankles and knee have been killing me lately and I don't think I have enough time to devote to attempting to run.
  • bummer

    Depending on your weekly mileage and what your podiatrist father has to say it may not be out of the question...

    Just don't ramp up the miles too quickly. Remember the 10% rule.

  • pompoms in my mind

    Oh, I hope you're able to make it out to Houston! Even if you end up not running, it would be such a lift to see you along the course cheering. You have no idea what a boost it is to see you and your pom poms when I'm nearing the end of some race and there you are! (Thanks for Dec 10, btw.)

    More importantly, I hope you get the injury sorted out at whatever pace that takes and that you achieve all of your goals next year.
