Rest Days... 0 I guess yoga is like active rest isn't it?
It was a great week for running, the weather is warming up, although 2 of my runs were very windy so I had to remind myself of these things to help get my butt out the door.
I am debating which 5k to sign up for in the next couple of weeks, if that goes well which I am afraid it will be humbling for how slow I find myself, I am going to decide whether or not to do the 9.3 mile run part of an adventure race.
I did it last year and it was the last race I did before this whole injury thing. I am hesitant to do it out of fear of re injury, but I also don't want to let my fears hold me back. First, though a 5k is in order! I need an idea of just how out of racing shape I am.
I am feeling good and have started throwing in some speed work during my runs, it feels good to be moving faster. I am also making sure to stay consistent with yoga. I really at this point believe it helped me turn the corner with my injury. For the first time in almost a year I can sleep on my side again for as long as I want to, the pain in my leg no longer wakes me up at night and the only thing I am doing different is the yoga. Now and then I feel a twinge or a niggle, but it continues to get better and improve with each passing week.
My little sister also sent me a picture of the running shoe tribute for Jaime, the runner who got hit by a car last Wednesday and died. It is right down the block from the daycare my sister takes her youngest son to. So sad and another reminder for running safety.
