I was so excited last night to set my alarm and charge my garmin. You see, I've been injured for the last six weeks. Not sure if I've whined about it on here or not. Shoot, you probably didn't even know about it. Just confirms that indeed the world does not revolve around me.
I took the last three weeks off to try and heal the little bugger. I had taken a couple of other weeks off in between trying to test it out here and there. But, that wasn't doing it and i needed to just rest it...the dreaded word...REST. The first week I did nothing. But the second week, I tried something new and biked, did the eliptical and lifted weights. This seemed to work wonderfully and aided in my sweat addiction.
I tested out my leg on Thursday night and ran a four miler with my training group (our half marathon is in three weeks) i was beyond thrilled to run it with no pain. This three weeks of rest thing really does work...imagine that!
So, I headed out this morning with a few of my runner girls + guy. Half of our group ran a different route and we stuck to our favorite. The miles were just like the title says...easy, breezy. Halfway through, it started raining and that only lead to the thought that I was even more hardcore than I thought.
I am so so thankful for a pain free run..in fact, I am really not even sore. We will see how long that lasts!
So what is the moral of the story? Three weeks off is a good thing, twelve miles in the rain is even better and bagels/lattes afterward are a great reward.
I know, I'm deep.
What was your weekend sweat session?
