Finishing Baltimore HEALTHY meant that I was an athlete again.
It doesn't have to be sexy work. It doesn't have to hurt. It doesn't even have to be badass.
But it absolutely must BE.
I had tried this type of training before and still found myself injured. Perhaps this time was different because I viewed this as kind of a "last chance", this time I committed to the slow. I committed to the shorter runs. I was running almost EVERY day but only 2 - 4 miles at a time.
I had a great coach to get me here. He showed a lot of patience with me and my belly aching about short runs and slow miles :D Thanks for bearing with me Chance!
