what the heck…..
So this is my week.
That 10 miles looks so exciting but it is cycling not running.
I had a pretty awful running week.
I ran 3.3 on Wednesday which was an excellent progressive run. I’m ignoring the last 3 minutes! and I ran 3 on Friday which was an OK run. I went out to run 7 or 8 today and after about 50 steps I just kind of quit.
Something has just been off and it has been for a while.
I looked back and I see that when I ran the Clay trail, Waaaay back in week two of this training cycle, I seem to have gotten a little bit of a strain. The clay is fine, but for where I am at, those hills and the slippery dirt are not appropriate for me.
Since that run I have been chasing pain and problems. I am definitely having pain like I had before I had my labrum repaired, and I am definitely having problems with my one leg.
I had an EXCELLENT massage yesterday. i went in limping, and left walking straight. My Psoas were super tight.
So as you might imagine this is not the easiest thing to stretch out on your own or even with help. I came really close to crying while we were doing the stretch, but afterwards my pelvis felt a lot more open.
I need to really look and accept a few things. Firstly I am tight. I need to foam roll a lot more.
I do need to lose these pounds…working on that.
And I do not think I can run 2 days in a row. This seems to be the biggest issue. every time I do the 2 in a row, I hurt a lot worse.
So now to figure out how to do proper training. I think I am going to have to really put it on a 2 week kind of cycle, because other wise I get one week of M,W,F,S, and then the Next is T, Th, Sa,and there is no long run day left.
At least until I get a bit stronger.
So here is my plan for this coming week.
Monday Run 10. (Long run)
Wednesday night intervals with Brooke
Thursday rest- strength and swim or cycle
Friday run 4.5
Sunday run 3.
then for the next week:
I have to find a way maybe I can run 4.5 on Monday after having run only 3 on Sunday….Grrrrrr.
