|This morning's short run circumnavigated Terrigal Lagoon|
These days, I almost always struggle for the first 4-5km of a run before I start to feel human, so it is important not to listen to my body or I would rarely run. Instead, I always know what I'm going to be doing each day for about two weeks ahead, and more importantly, exactly what I am doing the next day when I go to bed. If you are undecided, it's too easy to change your mind when you get up because of the weather, or someone else's training plan, or some niggle or fatigue

So I cut my run to 6.5km, have felt guilty all day, and remain fearful that the injury is worse than I hope. It's affecting my mood, but if I can get through Sunday's 42km "no pressure" trail run comfortably, optimism will return.
