Another setback

I guess it was inevitable but I ran yesterday and then by evening I was hurting in my calf quite a bit. This morning I had trouble walking on it. I was going to go bike riding but I think that's out. I just hope I'm okay for my regular Tues. workout.

I'm not as upset about this as I was the last time it happened though. Mainly because that last time led to some significant improvements. Plus, I was warned that this might happened and to just adjust, back off for a bit until it healed, and then jump back into exercising again. It's actually taken longer for this setback than I was expecting so I consider that a good sign too.

Or maybe I'm just in denial...

The only thing I worry about is that I won't be ready for my 5k in March or that I'll not be better when it comes time to do all these races I signed up for. I was so sure I would be completely better by the end of the month that I signed up for more races than I intended. I was going to sign up for everything last minute and only sign up earlier if the race was due to sell out.

But once I signed up for Wildflower (which probably will sell out soon), I just couldn't stop myself!

I've decided not to worry about it. I can't control it and I need to workout to break up this scar tissue so I can be 100% better so I have to keep doing what I'm doing and take chances that once in a while I'll overdo it.
