This post has been days in the making, but I have just dreaded it!
After the awesome Brielle 10K last week, and missing Color Me Rad, I also noticed a pain in my knee and calf. On Tuesday and Thursday, I tried running anyway, and it was a mangled, short mess. I have walked, half ran 2 miles and limped home. I did not run again. I may not run tomorrow!
Over the weekend, I was supposed to participate in Pretty Muddy, in Ohio. When I first signed up for this race, it was being held in Columbus, an 8 hour drive. I was so excited to be invited as an Ambassador, that I didn't care. I just wanted to participate! Later, the race was moved. Another 2 hours away. With no local hotels, save one, and it did not look promising. The hubs kept protesting, I kept getting mad. Then the injury happened and it was a no brainer. I moped around all weekend, for the most part.
The hubs did take me on a mercy lunch date to Asbury Park, but it didn't help.
Luckily, The pain has started to subside! Hooray! I don't start getting achey until night time, and it doesn't hurt to walk anymore. Woohoo! I bought myself some happy lime green KT tape for this weekend's races, and I will hopefully get through them both!
I will keep you posted on my races this weekend, and the awesomely unique medals I will getting at both of them! I love getting medals at a 5K, and Sunday's Half is a Trail Race with beer and hot pretzels. One the course. Seriously. I am not a beer drinker, but hot pretzels? Bring em on!
I will also be taking part in a fun new program, Fitness Pen Pals. Actual mail, people! I love actual mail! I will keep you updated on that as well!
Did you ever just shrivel up and die from being coach-bound after an injury? Did you watch 2 seasons of Walking Dead one.after.the.other. like I did?
