In a funk

So I've been in a bit of a funk this week. I pulled my hamstring on Saturday during a 10k race. It happened just after mile 3. I walked the rest of the race. I finished in 75:27.

Since then I've been icing, stretching and just about everything else other than running to get me back to doing just that. I'm going to attempt to run again on Saturday and take it very easy and see how it goes. I also bought a compression sleeve for my thigh to use while running.

I blame myself for the hamstring pull. I was running too fast, about 8:15 or so per mile for the first 3. I have another race on 6/16 and I plan on taking it easy. It's going to be a bit of struggle to get back to where I was but if this had to happen, better that it happens early on rather than a few weeks prior to my marathon.
