Since I cant hide behind my aching calves forever I will admit that this weekend I walk/ran the Oakland Half marathon. It sucked. Reason being that it sucked so much is because I don't even know the last time I ran before this. As you might have noticed I haven't posted in over a week. I've been sitting at the edge of the depression volcano getting ready to surrender myself and be consumed be the darkness.
This isn't the first time, but to all in bloggy land it was the first time I went to the doctor and told him I really needed to do something about it. Usually staying active keeps me normal, but I was at the point that I didn't have it in me to get out off the couch to do ANYTHING. Just admitting everything to the doctor was the biggest load off my shoulders.
So things are getting better, but now my legs hurt because of my lack of training.
As for the entire 13.1 miles, well.... It was ok. Nothing great. Was in pain most of the time, the finish was blah, but the last 4 miles was pretty scenic. To be honest the whole time I was out there I could only think of the 26.2 miles I have to run May 1st for the Big Sur Marathon. I don't think I will survive.
