This was an unfocused, unmotivated ride. Rose commented the other day about me being patient with my injury. While I've put on a brave face here, the fact is there have been many tears. Now I'm in a state of mourning. Last year I had a great year. I finished in the top 4 in my age group in all of my races, I even finished 3rd overall woman in one. That won't happen this year. I'll get some distance back but the speed will take much longer.
I'm also mourning the loss of my running partner. I knew this would happen at some point, but not yet. I should be really happy - Dave is just taking off in his training. His running speeds have really increased, but that means I'll never be able to keep up with him again. I need to find a way to be happy for him.
So where do I go from here? I'm not really sure. I paid for races in May and June that I'll do. I need to come to some acceptance so that I can do these and have fun. I'm not sure how I'll get there.
