My posting is still somewhat erratic right now. Hopefully I can start to settle down this week or next. I have so much school work to do and still have more PT in the evenings. Woosh, I’ll be happy when that’s over.
PT has been helping though. I’d say my leg is at about 98% now. It was so hard for me to be at FLT yesterday and not be there to race. The day was phenomenally beautiful and perfect too. But more about FLT later in the week.
My PT finally has me doing some running. I was told to run two miles, two days in a row, at a 1:1 run walk. So that I did. I ran Wednesday and while my time was better, my leg was still a bit sore from dancing and jumping around the dance floor Saturday at E and A’s wedding. Thursday was much better in terms of how I felt. And I’m not going to argue with being cleared to run. On the docket for today is my next perscription run, a 2:1 run walk. We’re registered for a 5k for this weekend and I’m hoping to be told I can run the whole thing at steady state, not intervals.
I’ll be curious to see how horrible three plus miles feels after five weeks off from steady running. I imagine I will suffer immensely and clock my first 5k race over the 30 minute mark since 2011. But it’s what I need to do in order to get back into running. My first of two half marathons is only six weeks away and I will be severely under trained, so the sooner I can get back to just running the better. Hopefully after next week’s 5k I can start to do “long” runs. Hopefully.
I might head out for a bike ride at some point this week too. I’m missing the feeling of riding lately. I think I need to take Finley out for a solid training ride then take Jamis out for a nice leisurely stroll. Just a few more jaunts before the weather turns.
Speaking of weather-
*PSLswoon* If you already follow me on instagram then you already saw this. So yeah, yum! Fall.
Who’s caved and had a PSL already this year?
Ever raced so soon after an injury? Tell me about it!
