My First "Race" of the Year
Monday, August 25, 2014
Feeling underwhelmed, disappointed that my first "race" of the year was not the victorious return to running that I'd hoped. I used to run/walk intervals of 3 min/1 min. My recovery from the knee injury is going SO slow that I am still doing 35sec/60 sec intervals. And my knee is still a little stiff and achy after sitting. I so badly want to be out there running and hiking long distances. And now I am feeling the overwhelming awareness of fall coming and that there is not much time left in this running season. Ugh ugh ugh. This was supposed to be a celebration.
How to turn this around? Mary - You COMPLETED *THIS* sentimental favorite run - and found a way to make it FUN. Make that call about doing PT for your foot problem - that will likely help your knee as well. And do that knee PT!
Shelby and I - we spotted her with her name on her shirt - I said "Aw, Dave, we ALMOST caught up to Shelby" when we started a walk interval. That set Shelby off running - we played a game of almost leapfrog with her the rest of the way. Her mother thanked us for keeping her moving.
Unique race bib!
