The MRI results will not be in until Monday. Keep those fingers crossed. And toes. And anything else that is crossable. Crossable??
I really feel like I am going to get the greenlight back to training (and I don’t want to think about not getting it) because other than some stiffness in the mornings after a tough PT workout, I feel really good. On Wednesday, I threw in some jogging with my run…about a minute running for every ten walking. I know I have a long way to go, and that I am basically starting over but I feel really good about getting back into training.
If I get the okay to begin running again, I am going to think about jog/walking Broad Street. It is 10 miles. I cannot run it. But is it worth it to just jog/walk? I love the race, it is already paid for and I think it would feel good to get back out there. Honestly, it’ll probably come down to the weather. Nice weather I run…crappy weather I sit home and pout. I know I cannot run 10 miles on what would only be three weeks of training. I mean, I could…but I won’t. I am going to follow that 10% rule like God will strike me if I push too hard! Start slow…continue slow and eventually stop being slow!
Whether or not I can run again come Monday…real training picks back up. As for running…well, that is yet to be seen. But…if I cannot run, I will spend that training time either walking/jogging or on the elliptical. Back to consistent morning workouts and two-a-days. Back to feeling great again!!!
Oh yes, my first pair of cycling shoes! I figure, since it is my third season of triathlon and I am becoming more serious about it, time for me to step it up! I think I’ll try them out at spin class first and then work my way up to using them for a bike ride. Don’t forget…I am not exactly a pro on the bike!
Hope everyone is enjoying their Friday! I am soaking up every last bit of my Spring break, that is for sure!
