It’s Friday, Blends! We made it! WaHoo!
Thanks so much for your encouragement yesterday… I needed it! Although, how could you not believe I could run 28 miles?? 😉
Speaking of running, this morning was Day 3 of Week 8… again running for 28 minutes straight. The good news is I’m not as worried about being able to jog for that long as I used to be. Now I just hope I have enough good songs on the iPhone to get me through.
I started with a pre-run snack:
A spoonful of pb&co White Chocolate Wonderful (& it is soooo wonderful!) & some ‘loupe on the side!
I also had a little extra bounce in my step because I received a BONDI BAND in the mail, after winning Mimi’s contest at http://pursuitofhealthfulness.com/. Thanks Mimi!!
Now… how to wear it?
Like a ninja?
in a fashionable way?
It turns out it worked best for me when I spread it out over my head…
This headband was GREAT for running! I’ve always thought I had an odd-shaped head because headbands never stay on me… but this one did! It gripped my head enough to hold my hair, but without hurting. Love it!
The 28 minutes went well… my breathing was easy, I was cramp free and my legs felt strong… except for one place on my left leg…
It feels kind of like a pulled muscle? Or tendon?
About 1/2 way through it started hurting… kind of aching whenever I put pressure on my left leg.
I got home and stretched, but couldn’t quite figure out how to stretch that section of my leg. So I iced it.
I asked Hubbs what he thought it may be, but he’s more knowledgeable about spines…
So I’m asking you…
Have you ever injured this area of your leg?
Is it a muscle? A tendon?
What should I do about it? Ice? Rest? If so, how long??
I’m a little sad about it because I don’t want it to throw off my progress. Next week I’m on to week 9- my final training week!!
A shorter post than usual, but I’ll be back on Monday (my BIRTHDAY!) with something fun!
I’d love to hear what you have to say about my injury… & have a fantastic weekend!!
I leave you with some beautiful fall flowers in my new vase from Emily… Thanks again… love it!!
