what bad timing. Hopefully, with some rest and foam rolling the problem will resolve.
Gaye - dang that sinus infection...feel better, and maybe take it easy?
eks - yee haw! Does it help to know that I haven't run a race since 2000?
It's been that long since I could run properly (well, March 8th, 2002 was my last run before I was laid-off with this chronic, almost decade long injury). you'll have a blast, I'm sure. I have my own half marathon coming up, which I will run at least 2 mins a mile slower than my last race
Ashcav, I *think* i just heard about a relay type thing in MA... Hmmm.... I'm waiting for some details to be forwarded to me.
mommajb, even without taking the job, it's nice to be asked, and I know for me that it would do something for my self-confidence. How's your foot holding up with the short TM runs? FWIW, I feel always so dreadful on a TM. I can barely shuffle along, and it always feels monstrously hard.
Poppy, THANK YOU for the head's up. I just signed up for the yahoo group and left a note there
OH, secret sprinter, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.. This morning when I got up at 4am there was a parcel for me on the breakfast bar. I hadn;'t been out to check the post and DH checked late last night. It was a lovely surprise. And you must be psychic to know that I was trying to locate sweeties for my long runs
I am about to do the yoga routine you sent. So thoughtful..
Well, like last time I ran my long run, my left hip is out of sorts. I ran a slow short run on Tuesday but didn't run today as planned. I saw my PT this morning and she told me to walk backwards on the TM on an incline and also to strengthen my core. Later I am going to do some pilates and also my stretching routine that my SS kindly sent to me (thank you, again!).
Visit is okay with folks. But, mercy, I would do anything for some moments on my own. I go from students to baby to parents to baby, repeat. And even at night I have baby and DH and can't seem to catch any real solitude. I am such an introvert in that I need a lot of alone (real alone) time, so I feel overloaded. My dad (who is 84) is also quite deaf so the TV is BLARING. Eek. I really do have significant sensory issues - especially around noise, so between the TV blaring, DS whingeing (even nicely), and people talking to me I feel sort of like i could turn into a lunatic
BUT it is nice to have them here, and I'm making the most of it as they are elderly and we don;t see them all that often. I really worry for their health and well being, though. DS is being absolutely delightful, too - so smiley and giggly. What a lovely boy
FM. I got up at 3:30am to go to the gym but DS was not ready for me to leave, so I stayed snuggled up in bed with him until 4:30am when he was ready to snuggle with DH, but I had missed my chance to make it the class. Anyway, I got up regardless, thinking I could enjoy some solitude and my mum got up
(still jet lagged) so that plan didn;t work out
I did, though, sneak in a row before dinner - just 8km.
Okay, my few minutes of peace have ended..
