Wednesday it looked like this but it all melted in a few hours.
A run before work by an awesome full moon! Shiny objects distract me, I couldn't stop staring at it. 10:12, 11:01, 9:51
My legs felt shot, I am not use to running three days in a row, but I was whistling in the shower :) I know the day is coming where I am going to ride the unicorn!
Saturday I was worn out and I was going to call it a rest day but about 9 p.m. I decided I needed some weight work and knocked out my home dumbbell workout and broke in my new push up helper and of course I planked. I think planking everyday is contributing to my sore toes but I am determined to fulfill my commitment until Monday. I swear I am not drinking wine Monday and taking on any new challenges lol
Here is another runfession, I have lingering paranoia about injury in my legs, I am afraid I'll never be over it. I have felt the slightest pinch in my left shin just a few times this week and I keep wondering if my legs are really okay now, or if I should rest for another extended period just for good measure.
My stress fracture was January 2015 but the sensations in that spot have never gone completely away.
I also remembered that planking and push ups for a very long time aggravated my tibia bone, I had to tuck my leg for a long time so it wouldn't throb for several months, after I spent 6 weeks off in a boot. The problem is I need to tuck my left shin and my right toes are so sore I can't put all my weight on that foot LOL yes, for REAL.
Anyhoo...I am going to run my 15K this week and then I will decide if I need a little more time off running.
Did you see the ginormous moon last week?
Had a good runner's high lately? Been in the zone? Tell me about it!
Been though the process of coming back and feeling like running is all uphill?
Drink wine and look at Instagram? (warning...could be hazardous LOL)
Have a summer day at your house in January?
