Music for Marathon Motivation
I am only 4 days away from marathon #20 and after being in marathon training mode for 10 months I am just not feeling it anymore. After a great 2011 of racing and PRs 2012 has not stood up to my high expectations. I got back into my overtraining and injury cycle. It all started last Winter when I chose to ignore a calf pain that eventually ended up being an early stress fracture. I had barely enough time to recover and run Boston in April. I never fully healed and as a result have dealt with more calf issues, a hamstring pain and glute issues over the Summer. A lot of icing, cross training to get through and foam rolling when I actually could run. Fortunately I am feeling good now, at least when I don't push too hard on hills but still not in full racing form.
