The foot is ANGRY, but I think I have a potential solution. (Thanks Jen, for your google research.) I am taking four days off from running/foot treatment and hope that my foot feels MUCH better by Sunday, so that I can jump back into marathon training next week. My friends have assured me that taking this week easy & jumping back in with 6 weeks to go is not going to be a problem. I just feel that I was trying to do everything right this time, and that my marathon training is cursed! I already run lower training mileage than a lot of the crazy impressive athletes that I know, and just don’t want to have a marathon like the last one (although the part where I finished was good).
SO – in other words, I’m having a lot of self-doubt, self-recrimination, and negative self-talk. I’m sure I’ll get over it soon, but it’s frustrating. I’m sure I’m the only person in the whole world that’s ever had setbacks during marathon training and felt frustrated and full of despair, right? The rest of you have nothing but perfect training. All of your long runs go as planned and on pace, and you’ve never had to take any time off to nurse an injury or illness. I know it’s just me!
