I had a great week and, yes, I fell again on one of my runs. Monday was again 3 miles. I like the short run to start off the week. Saw some pretty colors which is not unusual considering all of the rain we’ve been having here.
I took Tuesday off from work to take my sister to the airport. First a run, of course. I had to run 5 miles and it was right before the turnaround that I tripped and fell. I couldn’t believe it! I was on the ground for a few seconds before I got up. I checked for blood and saw none so I knew it wasn’t that bad. I scraped a little my knees and my chin. I was happy I did not hit my head. I thought about calling an Uber to get back home but decided to just keep running and maybe walk too if needed.
I was very sore the next day. I could barely walk. I took ibuprofen during the day to feel better. And I did! 🙂
The photos below are from Saturday. Still a little purple but definitely no longer sore.
Thursday’s run was fun! I had to do 2 miles warmup, 5×2 minutes with 2 minutes recovery, 5×1 minute with 1 minute recovery, and 2 miles warmup. It was a humid morning too! I was extra careful and looked down a lot because I was afraid of falling again.
I nailed each interval except the last one. Guess I was tired. 🙂
Saturday’s run was at The Arboretum. I haven’t been sleeping well and then sometimes wake up at 3 or 4 and cannot go back to sleep. I didn’t sleep well Friday night and I struggled to get up the next morning for my run.
It was a gorgeous day for a run! It did get sunny and warm later on in the morning. I had to run 9 miles (my last run before my half marathon) with 3 miles at marathon pace (10:43). It took me about 3 miles to actually feel good to run. I did want to quit halfway but knew I would probably regret it later. Plus I have my 3 half marathons in August and quitting is not going to get me there.
Today’s run was at Lake Katherine. I was also there on Tuesday with my mom. We talked and enjoyed some quiet moments looking at the ducks.
