Lessons Learned

Saturday, August 09, 2014

Training well is the key for everything and anything.
Had my training interrupted for today's Asbury 5K event here in NJ due to semi-surgical procedure on my leg.
This is supposed to improve the circulation and pump it back to the heart with less of a strain. It worked well and I look forward to getting the other leg done.
The "cost" was failing miserably today on my 5K. While I did about a 2.5 K : ) it just wasn't what I had in mind.
My lesson?
It's all or nothing when it comes to preparing for these challenges and you can't fool your body into thinking it received what it didn't.
Have a great week-end Spark friends.
Ginny(Healthy Hearts) and keeping it that way. emoticon

    You just relax and recover. Just think of how much stronger you will come back.

    Yes, training is everything, but so is making sure you are fully healed from surgery before making an attempt to run on it again. Hope you heal fully with no after effects!
    There will be other races you can run like the wind once more!

    Doing 2.5k is better than doing nothing at all. It's hard when your training gets interrupted. You can do it!
