I didn't run the R2P last weekend. It's a long story that has more to do with the family dynamic (and my mom's control issues), so I'll spare you all the details. Suffice it to say that it was not my decision and I am very disappointed.
We're enjoying (?) some suffocating weather here, as Eva noted. I'm hoping to get to the track tonight for some run/walk action…if the temp drops below, say, 90, right after the sun sets. It's nauseatingly hot for a heat wimp like myself. I visited newrunner.com , the Runner's World novice runner site, and picked up some inspiration and a new run plan. I've decided to start back at square one with a run/walk plan in order to baby my injury. Paired with some cross training during the week to maintain my overall fitness level, the run/walk plan should get me back on track. I'll pick a goal race when I'm sure that the shins won't pull any tricks on me.
