Oh, I'm in a great deal on pain from exersise this week. I've done almost all of my runs outside since getting the garmin. It took me a while to figure out the pace thing, but I'm getting better. I like the garmin, its very very encouraging when I want to quit I look at the little numbers turning round and I feel like trying for just one more tenth.
I did a huge "ass to the grass" squat session with trainer on Weds. He corrcted my form, and then I did jumping lunges and thus I was incredibly sore today, both hips and knees. But because of my work schedule…I needed to get in a run. I was debating skipping it, but somehow almost unconciously I get dressed and went anyway. It was an Ok run, but today I really hurt afterwards.
I'm starting to doubt if I will ever really be able to run anything longer than a 5K. I surely want to, but since transitioning from treadmill to regular ground, running has been less pleasant or fun. It's only been a little while though, so it could get better.
I hope so because I have tons and tons of races coming up. Specifically, the Race for the Cure.
Should anyone be interested in supporting the Race for the Cure – specifically my fundraising efforts- you can do so here It's my first race since my hand injury so it's a big deal for me. I'm at 40% of my goal….
I may take tomorro off, or do a treadmill…because of the pressure…I think my knees are hurting a bit much.
