Not Feeling Great

David Jeter   Monday, February 7, 2011

I would like to be able to write that my runs went great last week, but besides my Monday hill run, I felt like the contestants on the Biggest Loser when they are forced tie the weight that they lost back on and run around a track.  I was trying to convince myself that I had not caught a cold, so I ran outside for my second run.  I pushed my long run out from Saturday to Sunday, as there was no way I was going anywhere.  Long story short, on Sunday I ran on the treadmill in a nice warm building, and made it about three miles out of my planned 7 before I started walking.  I don’t know what the lesson is for me here.  I don’t know if I should have pushed myself to run the full 7 miles, or should I have just rested and crossed the day off as somewhat of a failure and try to regroup for this week?  I guess I will take the advice that I give many of my patients, “All you can do is what you can do.”  I just know that ‘what I can do’ needs to increase a lot this week.
