The past few months have been rough on my training. I injured my foot in Dec, and just as I was getting back up to par, I got t-boned by a nasty cold and sinus infection. They got out of town just in time for me to start going to class 11 hrs a day for my WFR certification. It isn’t like I’ve been doing nothing, but it hasn’t been as much as I’d like. Truth be told, it bums me out to feel like I’m not sharp and fit.
Reading Chief’s post yesterday reminded me how selfish it is to think I’m badly off because I’m not logging 70 a week and whomping on the locals. Cripes. I’m honored to know that 80 minutes of my time made a difference in his day. Honored, and completely not worthy. I shouldn’t be running more, necessarily…I should be running more for something, as the name above implies. R4V is that something, I think, but I just need to figure out how to put both my running and my blog to work for the cause.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Just a quick thought before I step out the door for my morning run/commute. If you’re reading this, I hope your day is going well.
Your words really hit home for me. I find when every week isn’t a top notch training week or if I am having aches and pains, my mind can be consumed with myself and my own “issues”. You rock, Matt!
