Well, I had to take another week off due to my right shin and then additionally a raging Sinus infection. I head to the doctor tomorrow to take care of it. I hope to be back to training tuesday.
I have been stressing myself a little about missing training and also the pacing issue with my jog/walk strategy for the race. Let me give you three words that describe my run pace.. I AM SLOW!!! With 6 knee surgeries to my credit and plenty of softball injuries to my legs and ankles... I am just don't move well. I decided to take a look at the slowest times from last year's Princess Half Marathon. I am figuring that at WORST it will take me 3 hours and 30 minutes to finish the 13.1 miles. The slowest time recorded on the active.com site was 4 hours 12 minutes. That will give me hopefully a 45 minute cushion with which to work.
The only true goal I have for the half marathon is to finish. I honestly think that I have been over-thinking all of this, but that is my nature. I just need to keep training and do what I need to do each week. If I do that, I will be just fine come February 26, 2012. I feel better and I just had to share that with everyone.
