Change of plans
I got a call from my physician last night (Yes I have a great doctor). He had a cancellation and wanted to see me today. Of course in the morning. Since he is hard to get into and I am having some problems, I said, OK!
Of course that threw off my plan to run 10 miles entirely. I probably could have done it, but I would have been nervous and worried about timing.
Yesterday I did a bunch of housework, got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed the floor…for reals. But eventually I got bored, and truth be told, a little lonely. So, I headed to the gym. I didn’t really do anything there that I could not have done at home, but it was good to be OUT among the living.
I stretched and foam rolled and used the 2 kg ball for rolling stubborn spots. I felt awful. I have somehow developed a pain in the back outer part of my knee that extends to my upper calf and lower hammy. It’s like nothing I have felt before and I am sorely tempted to blame the Massage therapist on creating it. She did not…in fact, she is responsible for opening up my hip flexors and psoas so I can function.
I slept in full on compression shorts and sleeves.
I got up and was really cranky. I was still fairly sore.
But…I ran 4 miles anyway. I was able to run the first two really well, and felt good doing it, somewhere mid 3 I started to feel kind of sore and should have stopped, but you know it’s such an amateur thing to go on when in pain, and I’m an amateur. So I finished out the 4.
So for this week here is the plan:
Monday 4 miles (done) 30 min of strength training, DONE. Evening, run walk with friend. Expect it to be a lot of walk.
Tuesday: sleep in , REST. PM Massage.
Wednesday: Intervals at night with Brooke on TM. Or progressive run….
Thursday: Cycle strength in the PM.
Friday: run 3.5
Sunday: run 10 miles. Whoo.
THen next week:
Monday: rest day cycle in PM.
Tuesday run 4.5 miles
Wednesday pm: PRogressive run
Thursday: REST strength and cycle
Saturday: run 3.10 and 11?
I have a 5K on Saturday. And I am supposed to run 11. How to manage the two especially because we are all ride sharing to the 5K…
