I Was Running
Today’s Run: 7.5 miles, TM, felt eh
This was my first run post the Warrior Challenge and it went. It took close to a 1/2 mile for my achilles to warm up and not feel sore. I decided to run for an hour and get it what I could. It wasn’t a horrific run but it wasn’t glorious either. At least it was pain free…until I was done.
I stretched and iced and that made it maaaad. Seriously, it felt worse with the ice pack on. Thank the lord for ibuprofen. I am at a loss at this point. I know I just took a full week off so some soreness in my achilles is expected. However, I am 8 weeks out from Las Vegas and need to start getting 15,18,20 milers in. Feeling.worried. If it was sore after today’s run what will it feel like after a long run this weekend? YIKES!
Maybe I need to put on my regular old neutral shoes and take them for a spin. My Kinvaras have more than 200 miles on them so they need to be retired. My shoes could be contributing to the problem, no?
I WANT TO PUNCH MY ACHILLES IN THE FACE RIGHT NOW.
I apologize to those of you who have been keeping up with me and are sick of hearing about my petty injuries and are wondering if I will ever be back to 100%. Truth be told I am wondering the same thing. Power of positivity right? I figure once I get past this I am golden.
Hope my Ragnar team doesn’t give me the boot! GALS, I promise I will be 100% ready to go by April! NO DOUBT!
K…back to work!
Shoe thoughts? Could my beat down sneaks be the issue?
