… and you lose some!
I’ll put today’s race in the “lose some” category. Ah, well. ‘Tis life. If nothing else it was a nice run along Bayshore Blvd. with my husband by my side and nearly 11,000 others.
No let’s get serious. I didn’t really take this out like a runner should have. Then again, I don’t know if I’m cut out to be a runner.
The Expo. I can shop though….
I met up with Jena at the Expo last night to pick up our goods and lust over gear and technical clothing that I don’t need or already have 10 of.
Now that I’ve completed the race, I’ve decided, nah… I won’t really run for booty.
Jena will though. She kicked some major ass!
We ran into our friend Jenny, who ran the 15k and then the 5k right after. (No thanks, but…. Go Jenny. )
Having been “foam rolling” daily (advised from PT), I was totally distracted by The Stick booth at the expo. I starting rambling off my issues to whoever would listen, and next thing I know this nice lady is “sticking” my left calf. I have been feeling this weird feeling down my left leg that I thought was related to my recent injuries, but I wasn’t sure. Low and behold there are two huge knots. Lovely. Not that I felt the knots once I started running today, but whatever, add that to the list of things to fix.
So what’s next? Time to get healthy and try to manage this spondylolysis that I apparently have but am in denial about. I have been going to weekly physical therapy sessions (not sure how much they really are helping) and I see the doc again this week.
Funny, but really what’s next? Right… Okay, I’m saying “screw you running” and hitting the pool and bike. I’ll still run a little bit each week, I guess if I have to. I have a swim meet this Saturday, and I’m ready (to get ready) for Tri Season. Hello 5ks. Goodbye 15ks.
My Garmin’s Stats: What the hell? I ran faster around my block this week.
Offical Race Time: 1:33:08
I need to get over this like fast, and start feeling positive about my efforts like now. That’s right. I’m going swimming tomorrow. For now though, I’m getting in bed with my library book The Happiness Project.
