Monday: Rest day. Hip still not very happy about me doing anything with it. I tried every hip opening stretch i know. What scares me is that this is totally different than the other hip niggles that I have had. This is the front of my hip and it feels more like a strain. I don't like strains.
Tuesday: Speed work, 1.5 mile repeats. 10 miles total. ICKY. I woke up to lingering lightening. I had already decided this work out was going to have to be an after work kind of work out, due to the number of miles and how slow I am. I had thought if it wasn't storming that I would run my 6 and then switch this till Thursday. I ended up having to cancel soccer, so I had a night free, but my hip was like, don't even think about it crazy lady. I settled for just doing 10 or 9.65, as I passed the house at that time, and the sudden urge to pee hit me so hard that I almost peed in my pants! I had to sprint for the bathroom and barley made it:)
Wednesday: Cross training. A nice long bike ride and therapy session with Rocking Robin.
Thursday: Speed work or an easy 6. Since I had to bail on my original speed work, my coach had come up with a fun variation on my 6 miler. One mile warm up and then 2 x 2 mile repeats with a 400 meter recovery, one mile cool down. I liked it and looked forward to trying again. My hip felt better, but still not 100%. I warmed up nicely and then started into my first 2 mile repeat. I hit the gas and got nothing. My body didn't respond at all. I pushed as hard as I could and still nothing.
|I am going to have to run this 10 K next year! Flat and fast and stella can run with me!|
|I love this pic of stella even if it is blurry!|
Finally took a shower and ate something while waiting. I figured that would make the storms leave and it did somewhat.
Okay, peak week can't come quick enough. While my hip feels much better, other normal things are bothering me, so I am rolling, drinking tart cherry juice and doing my MYRTL like crazy!!! Have a great week! I will be attending my first parent's night at Andrew's school, and I can't wait!
