Carry On My Wayward Run

17 Dec

YES! It’s just a muscle strain. Just? Just. I got a prescription for some heavy duty Aleve and the number of an orthopedic doctor/athlete nearby. Maybe I’ll just save it for the next time I need a date. Or the next time I’m injured. Whatever comes first.

I was told to ease back into things- focus on cross training and don’t increase distance. You have my word that I’ll try to not increase distance. But this really only holds until Sunday when I’m supposed to do 5.5. Maybe I’ll ease up on the pace. Maybe.

The doctor also told me that I’ve lost 6 pounds since July. Uh? I eat constantly, so this was a shock. Thanks, increased training schedule.

So of course I’m running tonight. If I didn’t have to get to work right after my appointment, you better believe that I would have been all ready to run home in my Sauconys, jeans, and down jacket. Anything to protect you from that lovely 8°F weather, right? It’s warmed up to 20°F now, maybe I should go tanning on the deck…

    How awful is this weather??? I hate it. But I just wanted to say YAY to just a muscle strain. If you can celebrate muscle strains. I guess it’s the best alternative. So on with the celebration!
