I think it’s safe to say my life has been a whirlwind of work this week; actually “hurricane” might be a better word to use. I think I’ve almost made it through the storm though.
I can see clear skies ahead!
good great news is that my right hip has really loosened up, but you won’t believe this (or maybe you will)…
Last night when I got done with my (super short) run my left hip seized up. I have no idea what’s going on now. I’ve been stretching both hips equally, so I don’t know why this one is tight all of a sudden.
My shoulder also got tight on that side as well later in the night. I really wonder if it’s just stress messing with me and causing tension in different spots.
Is that a real thing? I think it is.
Between hip tightness, going into work super early and getting home from work late, I haven’t been running much. Last night was the first time I had run since Sunday and I only did 1.5 miles.
Honestly, I felt so out of it during that short run too. I kept wondering if I was just having a bad day, or if it was possible that I had lost all if my running fitness already! I mean it’s only been a couple of weeks!
I think I just need to get some really good sleep and reset on my quickly approaching cruise.
I. Can’t. Wait.
For those of you who asked if I run on the sand at the beach the other day, the answer is HECK NO! haha
I run on a sidewalk next to the sand:
I have run on the sand before but it is TOUGH. I don’t even like walking on the sand! 🙂 I mean talk about working your calves!
I’d rather just admire the water and sand from a short distance.
It’s beautiful isn’t it?
With the weekend in sight I am really looking forward to sleeping in, going to see a Miami HEAT game and getting my running back on track!
(Sorry if this post was kind of a downer, I’m looking forward to getting back to writing positive posts too!)
What’s been going on with you? Any spectacular runs? Have a race this coming weekend? Any awesome new running songs I should check out?
