I was so excited Monday to get outside! I have been inside all week because we had packed snow and ice on our roads due to the deep freeze. VA doesn't salt or plow neighborhoods (or all the main roads for that matter) and I run these roads with vehicles, so I do not venture out when drivers could be slipping and sliding. Monday, sadly as soon as it got warm enough to start the melt it also rained. I found road that was a little more clear and ran back and forth and got in a soaked 4 miles. I only ran 6 miles the first week of this year on the TM, so I was dying to get a few miles logged.
The irony...I stayed inside the entire previous week because I am scared to death of falling or getting run over in the neighborhood and when it finally started to melt I get injured. UGH.
Flying off the porch Tuesday morning really threw me for a loop and I battled a serious case of the blues all week. I felt wiped out. I just want to feel good and do my thang...can anybody hear me up there?! I told someone at work, if guardian angels are a thing, mine is fired...seriously, I do feel fortunate I have no stitches, staples, or broken bones. My backside and arm were swollen a few days and a spot on my foot and knee are very sore, and they actually concern me more. I can feel progress in the areas that were swollen, but the knee is lingering.
I pushed on and went to my training session Tuesday after work because it was already scheduled and it was tough. The trainer was modifying and keeping everything light weight so I could get through it. I moved my next session to Saturday to have some healing time, but unfortunately my right knee was still hurting dead center when I tried to squat, so I couldn't do my usual kettle bell swings and dead lifts. I did Saturday's session after my run and I was exhausted when I was done. Slept a good long time...
|Friday was my first run after my fall - yes, it was warm but it was also raining, I was drenched|
|Saturday I made it for an hour run, warm enough, but raining...this weather is dreary.|
This year is starting off so slow, it is making me feel antsy. I have not even run 20 miles yet for the year, but I'll keep pushing on.
I haven't chosen a word for this year yet, but right now it would be F***!
Sorry...link up rules, I am supposed to keep it clean. 🙈🙊
Any suggestions for a happy word for me?
I have a few races I am eyeing so I need to get busy.
Stay safe and warm,
Tell me anything to distract me 😃😃😃😃😃
or help me out with a word!
