Slow Hills Predicted

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Nothing much profound today.

I've been eating well the last couple days. Keep this up and I'll be right back to where I want to be weight wise. Then, can I maintain it? We'll see.

Took a day of rest today as far as formal exercise goes. Kept the kids and played actively quite a few hours. It was a gorgeous sunny day with cool breezes.

Still can feel those muscles under my left glute; some pains when I move in certain ways and some general aching. Tomorrow I will run. Not too hard. Saturday evening is my next 5K. I'll run as well as my body lets me and I'll make a conscious effort not to overdo, especially not to run the hills hard.

So, I'm disappointed I won't be able to give the Mayfaire 5K my best effort, but I will participate and see how it goes.

    So sorry you won't be able to give the 5k your best effort:(( Oh those nagging injuries and insults our bodies toss our way! Good for you being careful and not pushing it even though your competitive self just wants to let loose and give 'er. there will be other races and times you are 100% and will be able to do your best. You will be cheered on always regardless of how fast or slow you have to go! Just being there shows true grit and the heart of a runner!
You go girl!

    Your best effort is you, giving it all you safely can emoticon Trust me, you'll be giving it your best effort. We all have days when we're not as strong or as fast as we want to be. You'll heal and get back to it don't worry.

    I think you're pretty wise about listening to your body right now. And while it may not be a 'best' effort, you'll still be there running--it's a win! Forgot to add: way to go on the eating well!
