I think I deserve at least 2 weeks off. At least that is what I’m telling myself. After making my mileage goal I wanted (ok I don’t really want to) give my body just a little bit of rejuvenation. I have been having some nagging in the dreaded left knee and my right hip has been hurting with sharp pains shooting down the back right hamstring from time to time. Sigh.
Things I know I could do better:
1. Stretch and ice
2. Foam roll
3. Stretch and ice
The holidays have left me busy so I haven’t been at yoga for about a month, but my legs are in need of some TLC. I really want to get these pains in check so I’m concentrating on my mileage but I may have to hit the machines which provide less impact for a couple of weeks. Not liking it, but it may have to be done.
Even though I said I was going to take a few weeks off I still found myself walking around the neighborhood and on the elliptical at the gym. I’m trying! Plus the Midwest weather has been a bear! It was -11 on the way to work this morning.
I’m looking forward to getting my training plan in order and start looking for some new races this year. I was able to sneak in 5.93 miles for the week ~ 3.48 miles walking and 2.45 on the elliptical. This leaves 10,306.56 miles remaining. Trying to remain somewhat idle. I hope your week is moving along ~ Happy Miles to you:)
