Sesamoiditis. Knocked me out of regular training since last October. I still ran a Turkey Trot in [EDIT] Surfside Beach [/EDIT], SC (25:28) anyway.
The worst time to not be training is during the holidays. Can you say 15lb weight gain? The fact that I worked my way up to 42 consecutive pushups was a Pyrrhic victory.
So now it's February. Lets get started with a 5K training program to get back into it, right? No. I can't even do 800s @ 7:50 pace anymore. I guess the aerobic base is pretty much like Elvis: left the building.
So now I'm thinking. . how am I supposed to ride them hills if I can barely jog up them? So training for a sub 24:30 5K was a little ambitious.
So I cracked open my training logs from 2009. I guess I'll start there.
