My running this week has been completely nonexistent.
Total mileage: 0.
I’ve been putting in 10 hour days at work, getting ready for vacation and just generally trying to listen to my body and rest my hips so that the bursitis gets resolved as quickly as possible.
By the time you read this I will already be in the middle of the ocean on a cruise ship. We left yesterday afternoon! (Don’t worry Cecil’s
babysitter cat sitter is on duty and taking good care of him!)
My goal for this cruise is to do the four R’s:
My hips are feeling a lot better after what feels like way too many days off in a row. It’s been about a week!
I can now easily sleep on either side without any discomfort in my hips, and I haven’t felt the searing pain in my hips or even those awful lower back aches in a couple of days now. I think I’m healed and ready to start slowly getting back into running.
During this trip my hope is to run 1 – 4 miles each day based completely on feel.
I am planning to try and get at least one outdoor run in when we dock in Cozumel.
While the water is absolutely gorgeous in Cozumel, the area in which I know I’ll run isn’t really the nicest. I think the path I run in Fort Lauderdale far exceeds it (I’m so biased, I know!).
HOWEVER, I love syncing my Garmin in international locations and even though we’ve been to Cozumel many times I’ve never gone running there! It’s time to rectify that situation!
Even if I only run one mile in Cozumel that will be one more mile than I’ve run all week and I know it’ll feel good to get the legs moving again.
I hope that you had a great week and are looking forward to some fun activities this weekend!
How many states and/or countries have you run in?
