Bye Bye PJ!

It's official! I'm skipping this Sunday's PJ Half. So much for wanting to exorcise the ghost of 2003 but I've to be pragmatic about the decision. My right calf (plantaris area) is still busted and I'm walking with a limp. When I squat to chat with my kid, it's painful - luckily my toilet is not the squat type! How to run much less to do 19.5K of it? So I've got to cut my losses, even if it means not turning up for a registered race for the first time, in hope that I'll recover by Monday to ease into my marathon training. I said "ease" because upping the proceedings immediately after recovery is not wise either.

To all racing this weekend, "Go Rock PJ!"

  • Jamie,

    Sorry to hear that you have to skip PJ Half. Well, all for the better like you said, you'll need to recover, to get back into marathon training.

    I'll be in singapore again this weekend for Joshua Redman. Definitely wanna squeeze in some good running while I'm there for the next five days. I'm going to do Powerman, do the second 10K.

    Ciao.
