First: I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend, whether you celebrate Passover or Good Friday/Easter. Or just had a damn good weekend in general. Yesterday I was able to lay out on my balcony in a bathing suit and try to irradiate my shorts/socks tan. I also went for a great walk in a tank top and shorts! I probs shouldn’t have given how burnt Boston left me.And thanks for the suggestions regarding relief from the burn. I’ve just been using aloe vera…with lidocaine.
PT Update: On Friday I went to the one in the building I worked at aaaaaaaaaand well I’m not going back there. The woman I saw told me that I was okay to run. I think she meant that because I run a lot that I’m recovering from the marathon fast (and I’ll agree with her there. If it wasn’t for the injury I probably could be running based on how the rest of my body feels)
But I was like..uuuuuuuuuum no? Oh well, I got a massage out of it. I’m not nixing PT completely though and scheduled an appt at a different place for Tuesday. This time, when I called, the guy asked me to bring in my running shoes. I think that’ll be a better fit.
Good thing that I haven’t been in the mood to run lately not in the mood to run because I totally would have gone for one post-work with that advice I got! I mean, YES my leg is feeling better and YES I probs could run something. But I think my leg is feeling better because of the rest. I ran too soon after WR and paid the price. I like to think I have somewhat of a learning curve.
I did swipe my roomie’s ID and get some eliptical and bike work in this weekend as well as take advantage of really sunny and warm weather by walking everywhere for errands on Sunday. Plus some pushups and situps. It totally exhausted me though. Not anything bad, but that “man that was a good workout” sort of way.
- Kind of what I wanted to do!
And I did go out for a BEAUTIFUL walk on Friday after dinner. It almost pained me to not be out running. Almost. Should’ve brought my camera! But it was lovely to get out there and feel the sunshine on my face. And then go home and sleep. My friends wanted to go out and celebrate Boston that night buttttt it had to wait a day. I just crashed. 13 hours later I woke up. Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeez.
Who am I? I’m not itching to run and I’m sleeping. That said, we did celebrate hardcore Saturday night.
But since I’m not running (yet) HELP: I have a friend who is running a marathon soon (and I’m actually sorely tempted to go out on some runs this week because he’s in taper and I’m recovering. So theoretically it won’t be anything hard). I was originally going to run the half that’s “attached” to it but I’m thinking that’s not going to happen. So I’m now thinking of spectating the full. I need a creative poster idea. Thoughts? And Lindsay: I know you have some choice thoughts, but keep them PG girl 😀
