Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

On hold

This weekend was a blast. At the same time, though, it's derailed my plans for the month. After a couple of falls during my run and due to the fact that I probably wasn't ready for that big of an adventure, I have to hold off on "31 in 31." My legs hurt too much to try something new for a couple of days and my right elbow is still sore from one of my falls. My body is out of whack and doing something new right now is not the smart thing to do. That all being said, I'm still pretty jazzed up about what I did this weekend. And, fortunately, I'm not really injured -- I'm just sore. I can keep running. I've learned a good lesson with "31 in 31" and I'll be more than ready to tackle something like that later this year. I need to plan it out more and stick to a schedule. I went day-by-day and that sort of thing just didn't work.

Also, because of this soreness in my elbow, I'm putting the 100 push-ups program on hold too. I did a couple of push-ups last night and it felt OK, but today as I type my arm seems to stiffen up. As much as I think I could push through it, I don't want to hurt myself. I have to keep my eye on my bigger running goals right now. I'm quite bummed that I'm doing this, but I think it's the right thing to do.
