Decided not to race

4 miles equivalent

Tried running for .25 miles on the treadmill and this injury is still crippling me!  There is no point in running like a crazy limping person, so I just stopped and did the elliptical for 40 minutes, which still aggravated the injury slightly.

I’ve officially decided to not race this weekend.  Even if my injury does start feeling better later this week its very unlikely that I will be 100% ready to go all out for 13.1 miles by Sunday.  What is more likely to happen if I race is that I’ll re-injure myself and extend my recovery time further.  I’d rather recover as quickly as possible and get back to my regular training so I can be ready for Boston in April.
