Yes, you read that right…I am a little, very frustrated…

After my eight miles on Sunday, I lifted on Monday (a decrease week) and ran 5 miles on Tuesday.  Wednesday I walked 2 miles on the treadmill and stretched.  Thursday I did 3 miles, in anticipation of 9 miles on Saturday.  At the end of my 3 miles I think I stretched my groin muscle or my hip flexor…Friday was off and I hoped that I could still get in the miles today…no not happening.

Today will be some squats and other warm up the legs exercises, very carefully, and then stretch and roll.  Hopefully I can get in the 9 miles on Sunday afternoon.

The Half at the Hamptons is 4 weeks away.

It is really funny to me that I am so frustrated…increased miles, long miles really scare me…but, I was psyched for this…heck, I did 8 last week, and this is only ONE more mile…let’s hope!

Hope you are having a less frustrating day/week!!

    Remember RICE. If you can’t Rest it, make time to Ice, Compress and Elevate the area that is bothering you
