So, it would appear that getting my wisdom tooth out on Wednesday was a bigger deal than I was expecting. Here it is Friday morning and my face still throbs.
The dentist said I could run tomorrow if I ran with gauze packed in my mouth. Does running for 3+ hours with a mouth full of gauze that you need to change every 30 minutes sound fun to you?
So, I've screwed up my plan. I tried to run my 16 miler on Monday because I was afraid this would happen but I failed. I only made it 4 miles. Now I'm out this week's long run and I'm looking at I think 22 miles lost this month from my training plan. That's a lot of miles. I'm hoping I can get all my miles in next week because I set a goal this month to hit 100 miles. Now, I'm going to barely make it if at all. I know having a 100 mile month isn't the ultimate goal, but the fact I was going to blow it away this month was kind of a big deal. Only now I won't.
I should have listened when a friend said to postpone this stupid surgery. I screwed up.
