Marathon training has just incurred a giant setback. Without to much incriminating detail, work is just taking a toll on me physically and mentally. In trying to speed through my workday, take short cuts and lift crap this is way beyond what I can safely do I completely trashed my back and it's put the brakes on my training schedule. It was great for a little while being ahead of my schedule!
The stress of taking a gigantic step backwards yet again in my career has broken the straw on -this- camels back.
I'm feeling very old and useless in today's world. Getting old really sucks!
Tomorrow in instead of a run I'll try to get in a very fast bike ride to keep up my aerobic level. I think the gym and running may need a few days off. Back injuries don't seem to bother my back as much when I'm riding.
A bit depressed tonight so, not much to really say.
Monday night I had a good 8 miles or so to the bridge and back. Of course the bridge looked awesome as usual and I took a shot of it during my run.
