The last time we talked it was Tuesday, December 21 and I had gotten up early to go for a short run.
It was a hard run, I felt sluggish and ugh-gy. Just overall a nasty morning. My joints felt pretty ok, but my muscles were screaming. I did have my new racers on - but I think my muscles are just rebelling on principle.
But then I FINALLY uploaded my Garmin and found something awesome out! I only ran 1.88 miles - meh - not too bad. My average pace was only 15:35/mile overall - but my running pace was ridiculous
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!
Ok - so it was only 1.36 miles at that pace with some insanely slow walk breaks in between - but damn!
The rest of the day was spent driving to Port Aransas for a meeting, having the meeting, and driving back. Ugh! Wednesday was a busy day with closing up a few projects at work and taking the terrible twosome up to Houston for the Christmas season.
Thursday was my return to running.
That's right - a comic book, a gun book, an iPhone and some water - I'm in Heaven!
Except I really wasn't!
I was only able to run just over a mile on Thursday. Everything hurt - my calves, my ankles, my freakin HIP, even my left glute was cranky. Holy hell!
But I finished the mile was an overall pace of 13:24/mile and I had to take a couple of walking breaks. So still pretty quick - even in the pain!
And then I limped around the house for a while.
I decided to take my Saturday run off in order to try and heal up whatever is causing me this amount of pain. I also decided to take the advice of EVERYONE and stop wearing stilettos.
But I went shopping with The Boy and found a cute pair of black flats so that I can still wear cute shoes and not be damaging my muscles. Who knew that in my closet of over 150 pairs of shoes I wouldn't have a single pair of flats! WTF!
But I do now!
Go team go - new shoes!
