Went down to watch "Fitness 5" my goal race and it was frustrating to watch everyone go when i couldn't run myself.

Some of my friends recorded good times with one doing 17:30 after 14 weeks of training for his first marathon!

My brother in lawand i had a wager for a case of beer that i couldn't beat him with a 30 second advantage he came in at 20:20 so i am sure i would have come in by 20:50 to collect.He was shirty when i told him i would have beat him with that start (and maybe even outright!)I suppose i sounded arrogant but i was so sure with my training i was going near to cracking the 20min mark.

Anyhow i'm home now and want to run again but can't!
I am going to play with my boy then read a book when he goes to sleep to get my mind off running.

Edit:Injury update....I've been walking around this afternoon without the aid of crutches but i need to still favour the left foot.Hopefully i will be able to walk on it more in the coming days.

Plenty more races to run. You'll come back even hungrier ... and thirstier :-)

I'm sure you would have gone close to 20 so a shame on missing that case of beer.

How very frustrating. Especially after the race having to resort to "I could have beaten you" hehe.

If you can't take out your mind of running think about what caused this injury, time to change the roots. Patience.

Sorry to hear about the injury before the race. I hope it heals up soon. I answered your question and a couple others in my post today.
