Week 11 of 16
I’m back! So I’m not 100% but I’m back to running and overall feeling pretty good. I totaled 22 miles on the week with a “long run” of 10 miles.
Monday was awesome running weather for March and I couldn’t wait to get out the door for a run. My plan was to run 3 miles but that weather! I ended up running 5 miles and felt great.
I tried spinning on Tuesday morning for the first time since my injury but started to regret it towards the end of class. I originally thought sitting was aggregating my hip but the angle in a standing climb was not ideal either. Boo.
Tuesday afternoon I got in a strength training session followed by a short, easy treadmill run. I may have overdone it so I took Wednesday completely off and only taught about half of my Thursday night spin class on the bike.
I met with Kathy for PT on Friday morning then headed home to a 4 mile run. Later that day Georgie and I met up with my mom for a nice beach to beach walk in Cotuit.
I had mixed emotions about my “long run” on Saturday morning. It was another awesome March day and I was looking forward to getting out the door but I was supposed to run my first 20 miler this week. Kathy said I should run 8. I was thinking more like 10-12 and honestly I was more nervous about running 10 miles then I usually am before running 20 miles. It was a big run for me. If it didn’t go well and the pain returned, I knew that was pretty much it for my Boston 2019 training. I am running out of time and I couldn’t afford another setback.
The good news is, I ran 10 miles pain free. I was sore after but that is expected. In terms of cardio, I was struggling. I stopped a bunch of times. I visited Lola and Parker. I searched for sea glass at the beach. I took my time and enjoyed it.
Next week I will shoot for 14 miles…
