Day 31: Give Up So Close Or Risk All?

marathon-huskeyShall I give up on a perfect month with a mere 10km left to run? If I do the 10km run will I do more damage to my calf and risk an extended, enforced rest, thereby setting back my marathon preparation?

These are the questions rattling through my brain at the moment. The brain is a goal-achievement-seeking machine, which further complicates matters. It really, really wants me to risk it when I’m so close. It’s saying “why not just do it, you can rest from tomorrow”. No brain. In this situation, I know better than you.

My brain’s coming back with “why not just walk it and call it running”. Lol that’s not how it works. And if it was, then I’ve met my target because I have over 10km walking tracked on Runkeeper this month.

And with that, I’m signing off for 2013.

Happy New Year everyone!
