Keep the signage ideas coming! I have a couple favorites…maybe I’ll make more than one poster? Since I know more than one person running I can customize 😉 I am getting so excited to spectate this weekend!
After working a 13 hour workday yesterday (okay so it was really 12.75 hours but actually wasn’t so bad since I got to go to a Department of Health training) I just crawled into bed. Without my phone because I left it at work. I feel so naked! Luckily my regular alarm clock works just fine and I was able to get up and go to my 2nd eval appointment for my knee.
So here’s the New PT Update:
I got up wicked bright and early to go to this 2nd (!!) eval for my leg pain and I was really happy. The new guy (who looks like an older Will Farrell) actually ran me through some exercises and examined my leg and my running shoes. And shocked me when, lo and behold, my IT band was not the least bit tight. But my lower back sure is. I do have two budging discs in my lower back from a high school volleyball injury that apparently is causing my leg to pull up and tighten. Displaced pain I think is what he called it. The long and short of it is that I am cleared to run as long as I stay below the pain threshold. AND I only have to go every 7-10 days for two more visits just to make sure the exercises are strengthening my back. YIPPEE.
So you can bet your booty that I went out for a really short, and moderately slow-but-felt-easy run afterward. It was pretty joyous in fact.
I’m still taking the mindset of “I’m recovering” so I don’t overdo it (and as such: being a good girl and actually trying to recover well therefore leads to being so not exciting in my running), I don’t have much more to write — although, like I opened the post with: keep those suggestions coming for the sign I want to make.
Maybe some Boston pictures finally? I know it’s been a week plus a day since the race and y’all are probs sick of hearing/seeing it but I put these up on FB over the weekend and then realized that not all of you are my FB friends. I got my friend Nick to steal them for me (and check out his blog. He ran Boston too and ran really well!)
Chillin’ at the Village with some friends
I think this might actually be that left. But it’s a dark picture. I’m sure anyone who’s run Boston will tell you that when you round that corner, the finish line is sooooooooooooo effing far away. It’s almost cruel.
