Last week I was cruising along feeling pretty good. I had to run in the rain, something I don't love, but decided to embrace it, because I wanted to enjoy my break from work as much as possible.
I felt pretty good after my rain runs. There is a definite improvement with my foot. My runs were broken up this week. I would run 4 or 5 miles, walk a bit then run another mile or two. I was just trying to survive the heat, even in the rain it felt awful sticky, but it made my chart a little crazy to follow.
|Tuesday||4 mile run (39:31) - 10 min. walk - .50 mile run (5:31) - 10 min. walk - 1.25 mile run (12:00)|
|Wednesday||Cycling warm up (15:00) - 65 min. upper body strength training/stretching - 1 mile treadmill walk|
|Thursday||5.5 mile run (56:04) - 3 min. walk - 1 mile run (9:48) - 5 min. stretching|
|Friday||5 mile run (51:25) - 14 min. walk - 1.5 mile run (15:00)|
|Sunday||2 mile walk outside (37:00) - 65 min. leg and core work - 2. 25 mile walk outside (44:00)|
|Tuesday - 6 miles|
|Thursday - 6.5 miles|
Christmas day we ran and it was very warm. It was actually harder than the rain runs. It has been extremely sticky, that good 'ol dew point was almost at 70, and we only had a few brief moments of rain so there was little relief from the (75 degrees) heat. I felt fine when I was done and was patting myself on the back for doing it.
|Friday - 6.5 miles|
Saturday we decided to go see Daddy's Home, which I loved and the laughter was a good distraction, since I missed my long run for the week.
Sunday when I woke up, my right wrist was improved, but my left one was still swollen. I taped it up and Kenny and I headed to the gym. The sun popped out for a little while (Yay! had not seen any in a week) so we took a two mile walk outside to warm up before our work out. It was too hot for me to run, and I figured it was good for my system to have some time to calm down anyway.
I did get some leg and core work accomplished, so at least today was not a total bust, and we took another walk before we went home. Good vitamin D time ☼
The swelling is going down now, so hopefully things will be back to normal Monday ツ
After a solid week of rain this past week... the the forecast for next week (drum roll) ...rain, most days (sigh).
