It's no secret that I've been feeling pretty run down
Ten of this week's 16 awful miles were run today and as I sit here, I can feel pain in my right hip flexor, despite all the stretching, icing, foam rolling. I don't know if I'm going to be able to shake this one.
With my dreams of a 3:10 officially gone and my body beginning to fall apart on me, I'm debating if I even want to muster another 3 weeks of sub-par training, pay mucho dinero to fly to Richmond (haven't gotten tickets yet), rent a car, get a hotel, etc. all to run a sub-par race. There are a few options I'm considering at this point:
1. Calling off a fall marathon entirely
2. Running the Charlotte Marathon (Nov 12, too) instead (cheaper to stay in CLT with friends)
3. Running something in December or January to give me a little time to heal
I'm not willing to admit complete defeat yet, but I'm feeling quite defeated tonight.
