I needed this week to finally arrive. I mean really needed it. A full week off from work and outside stress.
Not just because it is Christmas week and I got a pair of Kayano 15 and Nike Lunar racers (which I am very happy to get), but I needed a week to do what I need to do. If I feel like running at noon, I do it. I have been able to pay more attention to my diet, and because of this I have run more this week than I have in a long time. It feels great.
I got sidetracked there for a second, the video for “Dont trust me” just popped up on my screen. Where was I…
Oh yes, running. I have felt good this week overall, my hip has been tight and sore at times, but it has not stopped me in my tracks like it has in the past. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it doesnt get that way. I have been doing my core work and hip exercises in hopes of keeping sacroiliac joint dysfunction away. It has felt good to get consistent miles on my legs, that tired, sore, burning feeling. It has been missing and I needed it. I have tried to keep it out of my mind that I am running much slower than I would like, but I have been trying to keep an eye on my HRM to make sure I dont over do it.
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone out there.
