Ready or not Race on Monday

October 2, 2012

The last week was not a great training week… on Thursday I strained my hamstring/piraformis muscle on my left side.  I think doing dead lifts on Monday was the culprit a bit heavy.   Running on Tuesday, it was a bit sore and my legs were very tired!!.   Wednesday I decided to go for a bike, I had not been on my bike in a couple of weeks, left me a bit tired for Thursdays run.  Thursdays run was hard and somewhat painful, not sharp pain, but that nagging tight pain.  I was very discouraged.  I iced and stretched, foam rolled.  I made an appointment for a massage on Friday.  My massage therapist is a runner, which helps.  She said take the weekend off, so I did.  It feels much better.  I was going to run on Monday, but with babysitting, chores and outings that did not happen.

Good news:  my new Grandson arrived on Saturday.  Jack Lysander, weighed 8 # and 22 inches.  He is a cute little buckaroo!!

Welcome Jack!

I got up at very dark o’clock this morning, did 3.3 miles with a couple of walk breaks.  Then Cora and I did another three miles, me walking and pushing her in the stroller.  Feels pretty good.

Looking forward to the race on Monday, supposed to be 58-60 ish, my kind of running weather!

I signed up for a Trek sponsored Breast Cancer Awareness ride on the 13th.  Should be fun, hopefully my friend and 2 time cancer survivor will be able to ride too!!

Hope you are having a great week!
