Big picture kind of day...


Well, today was a day to keep my eye on the big picture, but that was so hard to do. I was scheduled for 10 miles today and 6 miles tomorrow. At about 6.5 miles today I started to feel some pain just below my right knee. I'm not sure what it is, it is a very non-specific pain, but as I got to 7.2 miles it was getting worse rather than better. I decided that being 6 weeks away from the Napa Valley Marathon it wasn't worth risking injury just to log a few extra miles so I shut it down and decided to rest it until Monday. I truly hate cutting a run short, but I'd hate it a lot worse if I really injured myself trying to push it despite the pain. I know I did the right thing, but right now as I sit on the couch with an ice pack on my knee I am in a very foul mood. I know in a month and a half as I run my first marathon I will look back on today and be glad I made this tough decision, but I'd be lying if I said this didn't completely SUCK. Hopefully my knee will feel better when I run on Monday, I don;t think it's really hurt, the pain wasn't terribly severe. Big picture, big picture. Napa Valley Marathon March 6th...
