That's why my next statement makes me so upset.
I am not going to run for a week. I have a groin muscle that I think I pushed too hard during the 5K I ran 2 weeks ago. It doesn't hurt when I run. At all. It bothers me a lot a couple of hours AFTER I have run. Go figure. It doesn't hurt the next day either. I have let a couple days go in between runs thinking it would go away. But it hasn't. I have now
This happened before when I first started running. I nearly died for the two weeks I didn't run. I rode my bike, but I still thought I was going to die. But, putting it all in perspective, I'd rather take a week off than really hurt myself. With an eight mile race and a half marathon coming up in the next few months, I'd rather not take my chances. I am just going to have to change my attitude! It is a hard attitude to change though - because I really, really, really want to run 1000 miles this year.

How have you dealt with running setbacks? Or have you had any? Any thoughts on the matter would make me feel much better!
