Weekly Recap: August 21st-27th, 2017

Monday:Β 

  • 1.8 miles

The weather was insane on Monday!! Haha I woke up to a rainbow but no rain (at that point), then a whole bunch of rain while it was still kinda sunny out, then the sun came and it stopped raining, which is when I went out for my run. But a crazy thunderstorm with some pretty intense lighting developed right on top of me so I high tailed it home before I even hit two miles haha. Oh well, my knee/leg still hurt so a super short run was probably a good thing. Oh and lets not forget that the Great American Eclipse happened Monday afternoon. That was pretty awesome. πŸ™‚

 

 

 

Tuesday:

  • Intervals
  • 25 minutes of blogilates
  • 20 minutes on my stationary bike
  • 10 minutes of foam rolling

Haha I didn’t really realize how much I did on Tuesday until I typed it all out. Started my day with a mile warm up followed by two miles of interval work. My leg hurt for the first few minutes but it eventually worked itself out for the most part. Haha I probably should have taken it easy, but I really wanted to go a little bit harder. Oh well, for the most part my leg felt alright. After my run I did some blogilates, then in the evening I spent some time on my stationary bike then foam rolled a bit. I really need to make that more of a habit. I don’t do it nearly enough…

Wednesday:Β 

  • rest day

My leg was actually feeling pretty good on Wednesday, but after all the work I put in the day before I didn’t want to push it too far, so I skipped my easy run and walked the dogs did some yoga and iced my knee instead. Haha that was probably a good idea anyway, I was pretty darn tired on Wednesday, so I probably needed the day off from running. πŸ™‚

Thursday:

  • 1 easy mile

Probably maybe should have taken another rest day and given my leg as much rest as possible, but I needed to do something so I did haha.

Processed with Rookie Cam

Friday:

  • Intervals

Did a mile warm up followed by 3 miles of intervals. And some of those intervals were pretty hard too! At least until it really warmed up outside haha. I’m a huge wimp in the heat… Anyways, this run was simultaneously one of the most fun/most awful runs I’ve ever experienced. Running is the only thing I’ve ever done where I can experience that kind of feeling. πŸ˜‰

So according to my fancy Fenix 5, I improved both my VO2 max and my anaerobic fitness. I sure hope that’s actually accurate! I suppose we’ll find out at the end of this training cycle though. Oh man after I got done with this run I was crazy tired and got absolutely nothing done for the rest of the day haha.

 

Saturday:

  • Rest day
  • 10 minutes of stretching/foam rolling

Was supposed to do my log run on Saturday, but I had trouble falling asleep the night before and I knew it just wasn’t gonna happen. So I took a rest day, worked on hydrating, eating well, and I even did a little bit of stretching. πŸ™‚

Sunday:

  • 9 miles

Oh man, I really didn’t think this run was gonna happen today. Yet again I didn’t sleep very well so I woke up late, and I seriously considered skipping my long run. Again…But obviously I came to my senses and got a run done! The plan was to do 10 miles, but I honestly didn’t even think I was going to make it to 5, so I’m still pretty darn proud of what I accomplished even though I was a mile short. πŸ˜‰ My run was fueled by Honey Stinger, punk rock (I listened to a lot of Rancid and Green Day haha), and pure stubbornness. Once I got out there I knew I had more than 5 miles in me and there was no way I could go 3 weeks in a row without a long run. Anyways, I even took an “ice bath” (I didn’t have any ice so it was just a super cold bath, it was still just has miserable though haha) afterwards. My legs always seem to recover faster after an ice bath, so I guess they are really worth the torture. πŸ˜‰ Anyways, at some point I’m gonna stretch and foam roll and hopefully me legs wont feel too bad tomorrow.

Total Weekly Mileage: 18.93

Not bad!!Β After two not so great weeks I feel like I’m finally back into the swing of things! My knee seems to be getting batter! It held up very well on my long run and it seemed to get better the farther I went. πŸ™‚ So hopefully I’ll finally be done with that and that I’ll be able to stay healthy until November haha.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Weekly Recap: August 7th-13th, 2017

Monday:

  • Easy 2 miles
  • 15 minutes on the stationary bike

My asthma was acting up on Monday, so instead of doing a 30 minute run followed by 30 minutes of cross training like my training plan called for, I did 2 easy miles followed by 15 minutes on the stationary bike. At least I got something done!! πŸ™‚

Processed with Rookie Cam

Tuesday:

  • Intervals
  • 1 hour of working in the garden

My lungs were feeling much better on Tuesday! So I actually got the workout that was scheduled done!! πŸ™‚ Warmed up with an easy mile, ran hard for 5 minutes while pushing a little harder up the hills, recovered for 1:30 minutes, repeated 3 more times, cooled down with a few minutes of walking. This workout felt pretty good and accoridng to the data my spiffy Garmin Fenix 5 gives me, I improved my fitness with the workout!

After my run I spent around an hour working in the garden. Mostly cutting down weeds and harvesting tomatoes.

 

 

 

Wednesday:

  • Easy 2 miles

My training plan actually called for a 45 minute easy run for Wednesday, but I did something a little different. So I think I’ve mentioned before that this summer I’ve been making a point to get out and run a little later in the morning, so that the sun is up and it’s a bit warmer out. So that’s exactly what I did! I figure running in the heat will make me stronger physically and mentally. And I think it’s working, earlier in the summer I could only make it a mile before I would “have” to call it quits (I’m a huge wimp when it comes to the heat haha), but I made it 2 miles on Wednesday, so, progress!! πŸ˜‰

Processed with Rookie Cam

Thursday:

  • 30 minutes of yoga

Thursday was my rest day so I didn’t do anything exciting. Just 30 minutes of easy, great feeling yoga! πŸ™‚

Friday:

  • Green Day concert!!

First and foremost, this totally counts as exercise!! Haha I was on my feet dancing and singing for 2 and a half hours and I was absolutely exausted by the time it was over. It was sooooo much fun though. πŸ™‚

Anyway, the original plan was to do my long run on Friday, but obviously that didn’t happen. Friday is trash day in my neighborhood, so first thing in the morning I went to put the trashcan and recycle bins out on the street, no big deal. Well, it shouldn’t have been. But when I went to move on of the recycle bins this big pane of glass that we had propped up against the wall behind the recycle bin (the people we bought the house from left it here and we aren’t entirely sure what to do with it) started falling and my first instinct was to catch it. Of course once I did it broke into 3 or 4 smaller pieces and I ended up cutting my pointer finger on my left hand pretty badly. Like, not badly enough to need medical attention (at least I didn’t think so), but bad enough that I couldn’t get it to stop bleeding for a while and it seemed like whenever I let my hand hand down by my side it would start bleeding all over again. So running 9 miles was kinda out of the question unless I wanted to bleed even more from my finger and probably interfere with the healing process….I swear my klutzy-ness had prevented me from running a lot hahaha.

I think I did get pretty lucky though. If I didn’t catch that pane of glass it probably would have fallen/broken on my feet and I can only imagine that would have been worse.

Saturday:Β 

  • Rest Day

So I was absolutely exhausted after seeing Green Day on Friday. Haha I felt hungover, even though I didn’t drink any alchohol. I guess I must have been a little dehydrated or something…So I spent the day resting and re hydrating. I thought about doing a few easy miles in the evening, but oh man, I was just too tired haha…

img_5654

Sunday:

  • 3 easy miles

So I guess I fucked my shin up at the Green Day concert?? Probably because I was an idiot and wore shoes that I know always end up hurting my feet, and obviously I was on them for quite a while…Anyway, I hobbled my way through 3 miles before I quit being stubborn and stopped. Haha I never realized how often I actually end up hurting myself until I started documenting and sharing my stuff on the internet…Ah well. I’m gonna go stretch and hope I can workout whatever this is. πŸ˜‰

Weekly Recap: July 24th-30th, 2017

Monday:

  • 1 easy mile
  • 40 minutes of yoga

My first run of half marathon training did not go well… My legs just did not want to move, I didn’t sleep well the night before so I was super tired, and I was still recovering from the flu. So I tried to run, but after a mile I knew it just wasn’t going to happen. So I went home and did some yoga. πŸ™‚

Processed with Rookie Cam

Tuesday:Β 

  • 3.1 miles
  • 40 minutes of yoga

The second run of half marathon training went much better! I guess I was feeling pretty much back to normal on Tuesday. It’s still summer though and I still don’t like or preform well in the hot weather, so this run was still super slow. I had fun though. πŸ™‚

Oh and thanks to Luke, I’m sporting a very fancy new Garmin Fenix 5, so that’s pretty exciting!

img_5094

Wednesday:Β 

  • Rest Day

Wednesday may have been a rest day, but I still made a point to get my steps in by walking Lily twice during the day, then taking a nice long walk with Luke and Dean in the evening. πŸ™‚

img_5112

Obviously this photo was taken before our first walk. πŸ˜‰

Thursday:Β 

  • 30 minutes on my stationary bike

I may or may not have spent most of Thursday binge watching season 6 of Game of Thrones (and ended up finishing it on Friday) ;). I still got the cross training done that my training plan called for, so go me! πŸ™‚

img_5126

Friday:Β 

  • 25 minute fartlek

Fartlek fartlek fartlek! No matter how many times you say it, it’s still a super fun word. πŸ™‚ It’s also a super fun workout to do, if you ask me! Haha so I’m not sure why this is the first time in months that I’ve actually done a fartlek. Oh well. So when I saw that this was on my scheduled for Friday I was super excited! But most of these 25 minutes ended up being super slow with a few random bursts of speed thrown in whenever it seemed like fun. So while it may not have been the most hard core workout, I still think it qualifies as a fartlek fartlek fartlek. πŸ˜‰ (I for real need a shirt that says “fartlek is my second favorite “F” word. I think you all know what my first favorite “F” word is.)

Processed with Rookie Cam

Friday’s run was fueled by Honey Stinger, of course. πŸ˜‰

Saturday:

  • 5 miles in the morning
  • 3 miles in the evening
  • a few minutes of stretching

Double day, yay! Haha well. sorta. The plan was to do 8 miles for my long run in the morning, but that just wasn’t going to happen. Basically I just felt really shitty for pretty much no reason, so I called it quits at 5 miles but I promised myself that I would get in 2-3 miles in the evening. So I did! And I felt great doing my evening 3 miles as well!! πŸ™‚

 

 

Sunday:

  • Rest Day

I may or may not have stayed up until 1:30 am. Oops. πŸ˜‰ Good thing today’s a rest day and I was able to sleep in this morning! πŸ™‚ Anyway, started my day with a pretty awesome (well, if you ask me πŸ˜‰ ) of bacon, cherries, and coffee! Yum!! The cherries were sooo sweet and super delicious! And now that my belly is happy I need to go make my legs happy and go do some stretching/foam rolling.

Total Weekly Mileage: 14.07

I’m happy with that number. πŸ™‚ At first I kinda wasn’t. My run on Monday didn’t go well, my Friday fartlek was super slow and therefore super short, and although I got in 8 miles on Saturday I did have to double to do it, but if I would have gotten my 8 miles done in the morning and still doubled in the evening I would have gotten a few more miles in for the week. But then I remembered that I was still recovering from the flu on Monday, my fartlek on Friday may have been short but it was a lot of fun, and 8 miles is still 8 miles. πŸ™‚

All in all I’m very happy with how my first week of half marathon training has gone. It’s had it’s ups and downs, but what in life doesn’t? πŸ˜‰ I had fun, got shit done, and am excited to see what I can do in the upcoming weeks!

Happy Sunday everyone!

Weekly Recap: July 17th-23rd, 2017

Monday:

  • 1 mile run
  • 1 working in the garden

So I’ve been making a point to run a little later in the day a every once in a while. Just so it forces me to run when it’s hotter and the suns been out for the while, because that’s my least favorite weather in general, and that’s when I tend to not run very well. So basically I’m just trying to work on my weaknesses a little bit, and hopefully become a little more mentally and physically strong. Haha but let me tell you, it’s absolutely no fun! So far I’ve only been able to make it a mile running later in the day, but I’ve been running a mile and and then walking a mile back home, just so I’m out in the heat a little longer. I’m hoping working on running and being in the heat is going to make half marathon training during the summer months a little bit easier, but I guess we shall see!

Processed with Rookie Cam

Tuesday:

  • 2.5 mile run
  • 2.5 hours working in the garden ( I got shit done on Tuesday!)
  • 20 minutes of stretching

Ugh it was so hot and humid, and my run sucked…But I got a shit ton done in the garden, so at least there’s that! πŸ™‚

Processed with Rookie Cam

Wednesday:

  •  1 easy mile

Luke had fallen at a softball game and hit his head pretty hard on the ground so he took the day off from work. Since he had hit his head I wanted to keep an eye on him and didn’t want to be gone running for too long. πŸ˜‰ But it turns out he’s fine, so it’s all good!

img_4927

Thursday:

  • 20 minutes of yoga

So I woke up tired and sore everywhere. At first I thought it was because I had done so much work in the garden earlier in the week, but turns out I was actually coming down with the flu (or something similar to it) and I just didn’t realize it on Thursday.

Friday:

  • Rest Day

I was definitely too sick to do anything on Friday. I woke up tired, achy, had a headache, had a slight fever, no appetite, and just felt like crap in general. So I spent most of the day resting.

Saturday:

  • Rest Day

Still not well enough to do anything…but I did feel a little bit better! I wasn’t as achy and my fever had gone down a bit, so I think by Saturday I was on the mend. πŸ™‚

Sunday:

  • Rest day

Hurray! Half marathon training officially starts today! And on a rest day too haha. I really enjoy that Garmin’s training plans tend to start on a rest day. That very much amuses me, and I guess it helps mentally prepare me for the next day when the actual half marathon training workouts start. πŸ™‚ Plus since I’m still getting over whatever illness I had it probably best that I rest today (although I am feeling much better this morning!). πŸ˜„

Weekly Recap: June 12th-18th, 2017

I’ve kinda had a little mantra that I’ve been reciting to myself all week and it goes like this; a tight athlete is an inefficient athlete. Because, well, I’ve just been tight all over. Mostly in my calves and hamstrings, but also in my quads, shoulders, arms, and even my neck. That’s no bueno and it’s probably altering my running form enough to make me less efficient. Hence my mantra!

Along with the tightness and most likely altered running form, whenever my quads and calves get tight my shins start to ache, and nothing good ever comes from achy shins. So I’ve been reciting my mantra over and over again to remind me that I need to stretch. A lot. And so I have been! πŸ™‚

I found this nifty video on YouTube for shin splints and I’ve been incorporating it into almost every yoga session I’ve done each day. Now it hasn’t completely solved my problem, but it’s definitely made a very big improvement!

 

Now if only I was this dedicated to strength training! Then I’d be all set haha!

Monday:Β 

  • 6 miles
  • 10 minutes of stretching/foam rolling

This week I kinda veered off of the daily running plan that goes along with the Tinman challenge and decided to work down my weekly mileage instead of working it up. So I started out the week with a “long” run, insead of the 5k that the plan calls for, and I gotta say, that ended up working out a lot better for me!!

Processed with Rookie Cam

Tuesday:

  • 5 miles in the morning
  • 30 minutes of yoga
  • 2 miles in the evening

All of that tiredness and heaviness that I felt in my legs last week was pretty much gone by this point! I had a lot of fun on my 5 miler on Tuesday and I felt so good that evening that I decided I needed to do a few more easy miles. That was the first time I’ve doubled in quite a long time! It was totally worth it!!

 

 

Wednesday:Β 

  • 1.78 miles, got caught in a thunderstorm and had to run home and wait it out for a while, then did 2 more miles
  • 10 minutes of yoga

Haha yeah, things got a little crazy on Wednesday. I talk all about what went down that day here, if you want to know all of the details, but basically, my run got interrupted by a severe thunderstorm…

 

 

Thursday:

  • rest day

After Wednesday’s escapades I decided that I could use a day off from running. And not gonna lie, I didn’t want to wake up at 5 am again and used this rest day as an opportunity to sleep in a little bit. It was glorious! And I mean, I felt pretty shitty during part 2 of my run on Wednesday, so I figured a rest day was in order. πŸ™‚

Friday:

  • 5 miles
  • 20 minutes of hoeing in the garden
  • 30 minutes on the stationary bike

This run ended up being a lot of fun!! We got more thunderstorms last night so they cooled everything off a little bit. I was worried that the humidity would be terrible, but it was only at 77% this morning. Not bad!! πŸ™‚

Saturday:

  • 2 miles

We got another really bad thunderstorm the night before, so it was crazy humid and muggy and miserable outside on Saturday. I had planned on doing 3 miles, but I stopped at 2 because I was basically dying haha. On the bright side, I had a lot of fun dodging and hurdling all of the leaves and tree branches that had been knocked down by the storm. πŸ˜‰

img_4185

Sunday:

  • Active Rest Day

Yay no running for me today! Haha I actually feel pretty darn good today, but we had ANOTHER thunderstorm last night, so yet again it’s humid and gross outside. But Luke and I are going to the dog park a little bit later today, and I’m going to work on some stretching as well. πŸ™‚

Also, happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there! You probably are and or have a super cool dad, but my dad is definitely the coolest!! πŸ˜‰

img_4196

Me, my dad, and my baby brother. πŸ™‚

Total Weekly Mileage: 24 miles

Went over my weekly goal by a whole mile! Go me!! πŸ˜‰

Total Monthly Mileage: 48.62

So, I’m definitely hanging in there on this challenge! I’m a little bit behind, but I’m not too worried about it. Even if I don’t hit the total monthly mileage goal for this challenge I’m still going to be super proud of myself! So far I’ve hung in there when things have gotten tough, I’ve hardcore upped my mileage which I’ve been trying to do for a while now (and in the summer too! I never accomplish much in the summer, running wise), ran more miles than I ran in the entire month of May, and I’ve definitely learned that I’m capable of much more than I thought! I think all of that is much more important that hitting some arbitrary number of miles anyway. πŸ™‚

I hope you’ve had a great week!

~Ashley

Weekly Recap: June 5th-11th, 2017

The week was the first full week of the challengevilleΒ challenge that I’m doing this month. Not gonna lie, it’s been really rough. Between the increase in mileage and the rising temps and crazy humidity, I’ve had my ass handed to me many different times this week. At this point I’m just barely hanging in there, and I’ve fallen a little bit behind on my challenge.

So this is what the daily run guide looks like for this particular challenge;

img_3755

I started out following this guide perfectly, but by Friday all of my momentum from earlier in the week came crashing down around me and I really really started to struggle and ended up finishing this week on a really weak note. Oh well, there’s always next week I suppose.

But anyway, here’s what this weeks workouts looked like;

Monday:

  • 5k
  • 20 minutes of yoga
  • about 10 minutes of working in the garden (watering plants, pulling weeds, and a little bit of hoeing. It totally counts as a strength workout. πŸ˜‰ ).
  • 10 minutes of foam rolling/stretching

Accidentally slept through my alarm on Monday. Oops. That ended up making this run a little more difficult, as it was really starting to warm up, the sun was out and the pavement was reflecting that heat right back at me, and the humidity was at 99%. Fun times…I had to keep reminding myself that summer miles bring fall smiles, and all this hard, grinding work that I’m putting in now is going to hardcore pay off once the cooler months roll around.

Processed with Rookie Cam

Tuesday:

  • 4.5 miles
  • 40 minutes working in the garden

Got up with my alarm this morning, got out on the road just as the sun was coming up, and the humidity was only at 75% during my run on Tuesday. Yeah, this run was definitely better than Monday’s. πŸ™‚

Processed with Rookie Cam

Wednesday:Β 

  • Rest Day
  • 25 minutes of yoga

I was feeling absolutely beat on Wednesday, so I decided to switch things around a little bit and take a rest day. I think that was a very good decision. I was just crazy tired all day, so rest day was probably necessary.

Thursday:

  • 5 Miles
  • 10 mintues of stretching/foam rolling

I’m really glad I ended up taking a rest day on Wednesday! Thursday’s run ended up being a lot of fun because of that, I think! Plus Revolution Radio makes every run better. πŸ˜‰

Processed with Rookie Cam

Friday:

  • 1 hour working in the garden

So this is when things started getting away from me a little bit…I was super tired Thursday night, so I ended up sleeping in until 7 on Friday, and by then it was super hot and sunny and I definitely did not want to run in that. So I thought maybe I’d try to get in a few miles in the evening.

That didn’t end up happening though. Luke and I spent most of Friday running around getting errands done, shopping, and working in the yard/garden. So by the time 7-8 pm rolled around I was too tired to even think about running. Even though I probably should have…oh well.

Saturday:

On Saturday my right shin, which is the shin that sometimes gives me trouble, was feeling sore and achy. Well that was no good. I didn’t want to risk running on it because there was once a time when I tried that and then ended up having to take a whole month off from running. So I spent my Saturday resting and icing my shin.

Sunday:

  • 1 mile
  • 40 minutes of yoga

My shin was feeling much better when I woke up this morning, so I decided to try out a short easy run. It felt great, but the rest of me well, not so much…I haven’t been sleeping very well lately but I’ve still been trying to wake up early, so I’m just tired. Despite all of my yoga, foam rolling, and compression sock wearing, my legs are still crazy sore and very heavy. I think they’re having some issues recovering since I’m not sleeping well. And don’t even get me started on the heat. The summer just isn’t a good time for me.

Anyway, since I am feeling tired and wore down in general, I only did an easy mile today and then followed that up with 40 minutes of deep yoga stretches. Hopefully that will help my legs feel a little better.

Processed with Rookie Cam

So since I’ve embarked on this challenge, I’ve really been trying to focusing on recovery and I Β guess I’m not doing enough because my legs are still crazy tired. I’ve been making sure I’m drinking enough water, replacing electrolytes (I sweat super salty), trying to eat a little bit better and at the correct times, napping when I can, doing lots of yoga, stretching, and foam rolling, and wearing my compression socks religiously.

But I guess all of that isn’t going to actually make much of a difference if I’m not sleeping well. I’m totally convinced that is my biggest issue right now. Unfortunately it’s really hard for me to get a really restful night of sleep when I’m hot, and my bedroom gets pretty darn hot in the summer. Haha the summer months just never go well for me it seems.

Total Weekly Mileage: 13.62

Total Monthly Mileage: 24.62

So I guess that puts me about 10 miles behind for the Tinman challenge. All things considered I guess that’s notΒ tooΒ bad. I’m thinking next week I’m just going to focus on sticking to the daily running plan and then worry about making up those 10 miles later (and I may never even get to that point, but I’m ok with that).

I hope your training has gone well this week!

Weekly Recap: May 22nd-28th, 2017

As you may know, last weekend I went to Illinois to help my mom and dad start cleaning out their house so that they can sell it. I ended up staying longer than I had planned, so this week ended up being all over the place, but we got a lot done and I definitely got some great cross training in in the form of hard, manual labor. And honestly, I think that’s the most fun kind of “cross training” there is! πŸ˜‰

Monday:

  • 3.05 miles

This run happened kind of spontaneously in the middle of the afternoon. My dad was napping while my brother went to pick up a part they had order for the truck they were working on. I didn’t really have anything to do at that point, so I figured hey, why not go for a run! Yeah, trying to run during the hottest part of the day, with basically no shade was not one of my better ideas. My mom had to bring me a Gatorade about half way through, but I actually ended up going farther than I thought I did. That was a nice surprise!

Also did a little bit of work around the house/yard on Monday. I mostly just picked up and burned a bunch of trash.

Processed with Rookie Cam

Tuesday:Β 

Did a lot more work around my mom and dad’s house. Yet again I mostly just burned trash, but a lot of the stuff on Tuesday was heavy and I also did a lot of running up and down stairs so I totally got a workout it haha! In the evening my mom and dad went to dinner with my dads boss, so instead of working I ended up taking a long walk down the back country roads. Once I got bored with that I did a little bit of trespassing on what was my grandma’s farm. Obviously I shouldn’t have been doing that, but it was soooo weird to be right there and see the land, but to not be able to go on it. I just couldn’t help myself haha.



Wednesday:Β 

More work around the house. I pulled/lifted/carried A LOT of heavy stuff while working. Wednesday was also the day I finally went back home. My brother and I helped my dad with cleaning out a trailer that they were going to haul to Colorado, and then my brother drove me home.

Thursday:

  • 2 miles

Just got out there for an easy 2 miles on Thursday. I was super sore, tired, and slightly dehydrated from working all day outside in the sun and heat and probably not drinking enough while at my parents house. Still felt pretty good, all things considered though. πŸ™‚

Also made it home just in time for all of my lilies to be in bloom! Unfortunately they don’t really last long, so I’m glad I was able to enjoy them.

Processed with Rookie Cam

Friday:

  • Rest Day

My mom, dad, and brother all stopped at my house on they’re way to Colorado on Friday. Since they had their dog with them I had to put all of mine in a separate room (they don’t get along). While doing that I ran into a framed poster that was hanging in our hallway and it fell on my foot. It bruised/swelled almost immediately, so I wasn’t able to run on Friday or do much of anything after that…Being a klutz really sucks.

img_3664

Saturday:

  • Rest Day

Spent most of Saturday sitting and icing my foot. Luckily it was starting to feel better, but walking on it too much was still making it hurt a little bit. So I kept that to a minimum and binge watched Avatar The Last Air Bender all day haha.

Sunday:

  • Rest Day

My foot is still about the same as it was yesterday, so I’m still resting it. Haha I’m just glad it got hurt now and not in the middle of half marathon training, like it did last year. But anyway, I’m thinking in the next few days it will probably be ok to do a short, easy run on. πŸ™‚
