This is it

Well, after a slow, ultimately painful 6 miles this morning, I've decided to stop running for the next two and a half weeks. It makes me sad, but I know it's for the best. I want to improve my endurance and be in good shape to start marathon training over the summer, but I just can't do it battling pain and tightness the whole time. That means no race this weekend either, which stinks because that's two races in a row I've skipped. Once I get back from my work conference I'll experiment with adding running back slowly. Hopefully I'll be able to do the Madison Half in May, but if not, I'm just going to continue working toward being ready to start training for Lakefront in June. Planning to do a bike ride tomorrow.
