I Think I Need to Change the Name of My Blog To:

Philosophy of sitting on bags of ice watching movies and gaining weight.

Because that's all I've been able to do for the last two weeks. I did manage to get in my last long run. It called for 20 miles, but I only ran 18 to try to defray the possibility of exacerbating my injury. Nevertheless, I'm NOT healed. I am not in pain on a daily basis, but only when I run. It's not a "run through it pain," but a sharp freak-out pain.

I just don't know if Chi-Town is in the cards. I have TWO choices before me.

ONE: Don't run
TWO: Run, but give up ALL time dreams. This will require sitting out the last two weeks, making my sit-out time FOUR WEEKS prior to the race. This is a recipe for disaster.

Philosophy of Disappointment.
Philosophy of Patience.
Philosophy of Humility.
Philosophy of Mediocrity.

Philosophy of I think I'll eat a tub of Ben and Jerry's and cry myself to sleep.

Would there be a chance you will have trouble getting Ben and Jerry's in Bartlesville? I am predicting Chi Town will be your best run and you will be glad you made the trip. Finishing is the goal right?
