An Eagle followed by a triple!

Had a great round yesterday! Broke into the 70's again! I had an Eagle on the back nine par five! Only my third one ever...then on the next hole I have a monster tee shot! Feeling real confident I proceed to shank the next shot!! UGLY!! I finished that hole with a triple bogey! UGH!
Such is life! Same with running...you can have a great season, everything is clicking, only to have some sort of shank (sideways event) come along and put you back in your place.
I am dealing with a loss, well, lots of losses right now, but the loss of a racing season specific to my running reality. But! I feel like I'm making the turn. Three weeks of a solid base camp under my belt. I will continue at 30 minutes a run for five times a week. This doesn't amount to much in miles but it is much in my eyes! I am running nearly pain free. I feel a little burn at times but it's better than it's been in nearly a year!
So 30 minutes of Strong running today! I saw again...the Garmin said.....I was going @ 7:50's every so often!? Maybe I could get at least a 5K in before long? Peace!

Oh, the joys of golfing. Doesn't it always happen that way...one great hole followed by a bad one?! Congrats on being up to 30 minutes of strong running!

Golfing and running can be very similar. Congrats on the eagle! And yea for pain free running!

i wouldn't even say seasons of running! from one day to the next can be a big change in good/bad.

I know very little about golf, but it sounds like you are doing well while you continue to "cross train." And I hope the change in shoes does the trick, city-farm boy.

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
