Quick-Fire Week

I made a really good choice this afternoon when I decided to buy a coffee at work.  I was falling asleep, but now I’m not, and I’m also feeling very optimistic.  I may also be a little hyper, which is making me want to blog, but not put too much effort into writing a well-articulated post. So, a quick-fire approach to recapping my recent life: I went to a yoga class on Thursday with my friend Katie.  It was a lot of fun and felt really good.  It was my first time ever doing yoga in a studio.  I want toContinue reading

Resting training 5/12-5/18/14

After re-tweaking my hip on Tuesday, I ended up taking the rest of the week really easy trying to sort it out.  No more running and as little walking as possible until it was feeling better.  I was able to go for a walk Sunday night without pain, but running still feels out of the question.  I still want to play it super safe to make sure I make it to the starting line (and the finish!) of Bayshore on Saturday.

Training Recap: Week of 4/7 – 4/13/2014

I went back down a bit in mileage last week because my right hip has been bugging me since about a week ago.  It sometimes just feels really tight and uncomfortable, sometimes hurts, and sometimes feels almost normal.  All the muscles surrounding my hip socket feel pretty tight and/or sore, so I’m paying more attention to stretching long and often.  Running has been a little uncomfortable, but not painful.  I have a feeling that if I tried to run today though, that it would hurt, so I will not be running while it still feels like that! So this is whatContinue reading
