Today was my marathon training group. I wasn’t sure if I was going to run because it was cold (predicted 6 degrees but it ended up more like 12), so I ran on the treadmill on my own this morning.
The head coach planned intervals tonight. With hills. And then they put me in the fast group with two other guys.
I kept up the first round but died the last one. My right hamstring started tightening up. I had to stop to stretch. We were trying out Adidas shoes, and I think that also had something to do with my leg issue. Plus I got a bloody toe from them. (I’m whining, I know.)
I’m soooooo annoyed with myself for not being able to keep up. And I’m afraid to tell my coaches I did a dumb thing and ran 6.5 miles before our speed session. I ended up with over 11 miles running today. More than scheduled by a lot. And I’m worried they’ll think I’m not good enough to stay in the fast group.
Note to self: be less stupid.
