This morning I ran my local Turkey Trot. It’s always a fun race, but definitely not a PR kind of race. I spent the first mile tripping over dogs, strollers, and small children. I also spent the first mile wondering if my achilles was going to snap. Umm, yeah, I’m headed to the injured reserve list. I’ll be taking a few days completely off and then I’ll do an easy run to see how I feel. I’m pretty sure cross training and the gym are in my future. Guess it’s a good thing that race season is now over for me. I just have to make myself let go of my mileage goals.
And, while I’m not thankful for the pain in my achilles, I am thankful for a lot of things, including all of my awesome readers. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving day!
