Fitness wise, I’ve lost an entire year. I made some attempt to train and race through the 1/2 marathon in April, but after that I didn’t do much at all. This was mostly due to total mental block, but increased work stress, heavy school loads and a slow-to-heal-injury played into the mix.
Now that vacation is over, and I’m healing up fast I’m considering signing up for the 1/2 marathon in Philadelphia. I’ve got a copy of Hal Higdon’s training plans and it looks do-able, though possibly a bit of a stretch considering my current lack of fitness. I’m meeting with the doctor tomorrow for a follow up from my PRP 6 weeks ago. If it looks like my achilles is healing up well, then I’m going to go for the November race.
