Hey there! Sorry I disappeared the end of last week but my work life got extra busy. I know I say that a lot but it happens a lot hah. Because I work hard for my money during the week, when Saturday rolls around I don’t feel guilty about indulging in some retail therapy:
This past weekend I decided I wanted some new running tops to go with the new bottoms I bought about a month or so ago. I think I found some good basics and at decent prices… the sports bra was the most expensive thing I got. As a woman with a bigger chest I will ALWAYS splurge on sports bras that provide a lot of support and compression!
Aside from shopping I also did my first 6 MILE RUN since surgery! I also completed my first 17 mile week. Here is a picture of a girl who is just riding that runner’s high super hard:
(^ That’s not food stuck on my tooth it’s just the reflection of one of my Invisalign attachments lol).
Before the symptoms of compartment syndrome starting really showing up, I was happily holding a base that included an 8 mile long run and about 25 miles per week of total running. That’s where I feel comfortable when I’m not training for anything specific… and I can’t believe I’m almost back to that! HOLY COW!
I’ve struggled on a few of my quality/speed runs lately and I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on there. My coach has some theories and we’re going to play around with it some. I’ll write a separate post dedicated to the struggles soon because it wouldn’t exactly be honest if I just told you I’m over here riding the runner’s high every day.
I am mostly really, really, really happy with where my running is at right now though and I know I’ll figure out the rest with time!
