If you haven't heard, I'm part of an awesome group of ladies - Team Tough Chik
I like the idea of "Tough Chik Tuesday" - so here we go.
So I had a craptastic race on Sunday. I had 5 miles on schedule yesterday. YEAH.FREAKING.RIGHT. I normally would "tough it out." However. I have a LOT on my plate over the next few months and the last thing I need is to get sidelined with an injury. So I moved the 5 miles to today. And they still sorta sucked, but I got them done. I have a few longish runs left to run this week. So where does the tough part come in? I'm debating about a last-minute-sorta-marathon-ultraish trail run on Saturday.
What is it? It's called the Southside Fatass 50K. A FREE 50K. Other distances available are 15, 20, 25 or 28 miles. Two aid stations, but mostly self supported. It's supposed to be mid 50's on Saturday. I have 20 miles on schedule... Maybe I'll do this instead of yet another treadmill run?
I honestly think part of my "weakness" lately has been the lack of varied training. I haven't been training hills. I haven't been running outside.
My legs are sore, but at this point I'm hesitant to call it an actual injury. I've iced and stretched and definitely feel better.
So. My question to you. TOUGH OR STUPID???
