The Run Doctor's Orders...

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Take 1 set of tight calves, add light rain, a killer headwind and one really pissed off attitude and what do you get? A personal best on the 5K, apparently.


That's what I did last night. Previously my absolute best road 5K was around 37 minutes. Last night it was around 35. And while my knee was a bit sore (thanks to the tightness), not too bad. I stretched it out and things are good!

Still, I feel rather gross and bloated this morning, and my pants agree on the bloated part. :( That makes me sad, especially since today is the day the bloat should go AWAY, cyclically speaking. Ah well. I will keep focused and it will be fine. :)

I stopped at the store this morning since my fridge is sadly empty. So now I have a bag of fruit and veggies (green beans and guac. YUM) to go with my small salad for lunch, a packet of almond butter for snack, and I had some eggs for breakfast.

I'm debating going to the active class tonight. It is a great class, but the step still concerns me a bit when it comes to my knee. But I probably will, since I'm going away this weekend and won't get nearly as much exercise as normal.

    I've always said that a "good mad" does wonders for my performance. I have considered picking a fight with my husband on race days.

    emoticon That is awesome! You totally killed your previous Personal Best. Put some ice on that knee for 20 minutes, then off 20 minutes, then on 20 minutes more. Then it should be good to go for your class tonight. Keep up the hard work!
