This week has been so busy already for me. Not a typical week. I usually have Monday off and I use it to prepare for the week, catch up on blogs do laundry..but I worked Monday this week and I feel all off! The upside to working Monday is that I have Friday off now so I can go to Parent's Day at kindergarten which is so worth having a bit of a messed up week.
I have been so in love with Under Armour's What's Beautiful movement to redefine the woman athlete. I signed up for the first round, but never completed any of the challenges or followed it closely. It seemed intimidating. This time for their What's Beautiful 3.0 I am participating through Fitfluential. Nothing like stepping out of your comfort zone right?!
I created a group called Team Work For It to work towards that next PR, and become faster, stronger and overall better runner in the end. I would love it if you could join me there and work towards our next PR together or you can find my profile HERE and I would love a follow! I am trying to find people I know but it is hard.
What is not beautiful is that I overdid it last week after I ran Peaks to Prairie and am now nursing a bit of a quad strain. I am going to talk to one of the ortho sports medicine surgeons about it today and see what he thinks. I am trying to baby it as much as possible this week. I haven't ran at all since Sunday, when I think I made it mad when I ran across a freshly plowed field for about a mile. Really it was just the icing on the cake.
sometimes I am a genius.
I have a 5 mile race and a 2 mile fun run with my daughter this weekend, I am keeping my fingers crossed I can still do them. If you have nothing better to do cross your fingers for me too.
Anyone ever had a quad strain? I haven't. My quads have always been like a rock. Guess I pissed it off enough finally.
