Last night I was reminded that:

  • jogging in the countryside, and

  • being a man of a certain age who needs to pee fairly frequently, and

  • it being the height of stinging nettle season

โ€ฆis a bad combination

Finally hit the point last night when I was like, okay, Iโ€™m so ready to get this race over with. Whatever happens Sunday Iโ€™ll be happy to close the book on this training chapter. Iโ€™m ready to move on to the next thing. (The next thing being some fall marathons Iโ€™m thinking aboutโ€ฆ) ๐Ÿƒ

Todayโ€™s run: 1 mile, 1.5 mile, 2 mile intervals, with 0.5 mile walks between. And mile walks before and after. And my leg feels fine. Cautious optimism has re-entered the chat. ๐Ÿƒ

Two weeks ago I was like โ€œnope?โ€ then a week ago I was like โ€œmaybe I can walk the half?โ€ and then over the weekend I was like โ€œI can run a little?โ€ and then today I did four miles of half run/half walk intervals then ran the entire fifth mile. So I guess Iโ€™m now maybe half running the half? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿƒ

In running news, after this yank, I tried again last week, and it didnโ€™t go well, but it seems like I can walk okay, soโ€ฆIโ€™m thinking Iโ€™m going to walk the half? Which is like a second runner up consolation prize but at least it gives me something semi-positive to focus on the next few weeks. ๐Ÿƒ

Pleased with this. I really concentrated on my running form, and it turned out it was easier and faster than any run since January.

Running update: re-yanked my calf on my Tuesday run a week ago and havenโ€™t run again since. So now Iโ€™m almost certain Iโ€™m not making the marathon. (Thereโ€™s a chance I could fall back to the half marathon, but Iโ€™m not holding my breath.)

I amโ€ฆbummed. (Understatement.) ๐Ÿƒ

Me and Ashley, out for a #run. Once again, sheโ€™s a much better running companion than she is portrait model. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ• #dogsofmastodon

Because of dog-related complications, I didnโ€™t get good stats on the run, but it was about 2 miles and maybe 30 minutes (including time to water the dog and pose for photos).

Andโ€ฆ6 miles today. Had to work for it a bit at the start but settled into a groove eventually. Weโ€™ll see how the rest of the day goes, and tomorrowโ€™s rest day is needed, butโ€ฆIโ€™m feeling (cautiously) optimistic about pulling off a good long run this weekend. ๐Ÿƒ

Another 7 miles today. I was hoping for 8 but knew I was pushing it at the end. Not the leg, which send okay. Rather, not used to running in daylight. Orโ€ฆeven remotely warm weather. ๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿƒ

In preparation for a half marathon on Kingโ€™s Day (April 27) I ran and walked 24 km. Iโ€™m still suffering through an ankle injury, so Iโ€™ll have to be cautious. It was a beautiful day, partially run alongside a canal between two rivers. It was tough, because I did 1.5 times my usual training ๐Ÿƒ
