It has been 2 weeks since the last time I ran. I stopped running because I had pain in my hip, thigh, and knee. It isn’t an injury but just tight muscles. I was told that I could run 2-3 times I week for about 30 minutes. I decided to just take time off and not run at all. Oh my, I think I became a whole different person! I miss running! I miss the energy from a post run. I miss the sweat on my face (yeah, it sounds gross) letting me know that I was getting a good workout. I miss the numbers increasing on my training widget (still at 71 miles). That is all about to change when I hit the gym on Tuesday. I am excited and looking forward to it!!!
This Friday I signed up for 2 more races. I have yet to decide if I want to do the Wisconsin Marathon on May 7 or the Chicagoland Spring Marathon on May 15. I have heard good things about the one in Wisconsin but don’t feel like making the drive home after a marathon. But the one on the 15th is a new marathon so I don’t know how many people will be there and/or what to expect. Plus the latter one gives me an extra week to train/taper. Well, whatever I decide to do I need to make a decision soon so that I can revise my training plan.
By the way, Princess is still hanging in there. It makes me happy but also sad.
