I did it. My first run after the Ragnar and a cortisone shot. I planned on an easy three - I made it four miles and enjoyed every minute of it! I started really slow but once I corrected my form, leaned forward and held my head up high I felt great! I ran one minute faster per mile without any increase in effort. I kept my cadence high and with the perfect weather I felt amazing! I reviewed in my head how good the Napa run was and how great I felt about my accomplishments. I real inspirational run!
The park was looking absolutely perfect.
Even the "alleged" homeless man was taking a wonderful nap. Or passed out, either way it was a great day!
Wore my new Lululemon! I had to wear a more substantial bra under the tank but still loved it. I started with a long sleeve half zip but tossed it back in the care after the first round.
With the pants. I was trying to get a full body to send to Tera. Not because the clothes make me look better but how the clothes look period.
Here is the sweaty finish pic. After this run I finally washed my hair. When I have it de-grayed (colored) it goes almost a week without getting too gross.
I might have gone a day too long this time.
BEST NEWS EVER!!
One week until those nasty braces come off!! With all the wires and elastics around all the brackets it's impossible to show a white pearly smile. Not to mention the hours I spend a day trying to keep the food out of the wires. The pain is pretty much over, but I'm done. I get them off next Tuesday and can't wait to smile without getting my top lip stuck on the brackets.
Last time I worked I was helping push the wheels down on a stretcher and pulled my right groin muscle. It was a little sore and I could tell that I did it. When I did my BarrEvo class it didn't bother me at all and even with my Pilates I totally forgot about it. After about 1/2 mile running I could tell it was there. It made sure I was aware of it through out my run. I really stretched it out after the run and it feels fine. Funny how it just came up again with running. I don't even know how to treat a groin muscle. Do you ice it? Get a massage? Awkward. haha
Have you ever had any injuries that you can't even tell are there until you start your run?
I had a knee injury a few years ago that felt great until about the 5th step into a run
What is your favorite running outfit?
I have too many!
When you are feeling awesome about running, what sort of thoughts do you have?
