So what's my point? Well, I am human. I wanted to be smart and take it easy, but I couldn't. I tried, I promise. We constantly talk about listening to our body when training and not doing things when our body is signaling that it is not ready. Well on Monday and Tuesday, my body told me to run fast. My mind said it might not be the best course of action, but my body said "Do it," and I did. As you can imagine, I caught some flak on the Daily Mile for this. I knew I would, and I totally appreciated the response from my virtual training partners out there. They only want what's best for me after all, but I'm human, what can I say? As my friend Andrea likes to say, "sometimes you just have to rip off the band-aid." Well that's what I did and damn did it feel good! Am I a hypocrite for running injured, or doing too much to soon? I don't think so, and I hope you don't either. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body.
