Three Things Thursday (two weeks in a row, shock!):
1. I walked 8 minutes at 3.0 and 0 incline on the treadmill yesterday as part of my physical therapy. A whoppping .35 miles - watch out . . . I'm back . . . ha ha, not quite yet!!!
2. Without being able to run, I cannot tell you how many times I have literally thought "Oh the weather is soo cool this evening I'll just go for a run. OH WAIT I CAN'T". Or "I'm already up because of my dog, I'll just go for a run. OH NO, CAN'T!" I have had similar conversations about 50 times in the past 3 weeks. It's like I have a memory problem- duh gimpy over here. The irony? When I actually am running and training I can think of 50 excuses in .3 seconds as to why I will skip my next run. CRAZY!
3. Weather, at least for me, plays a huge role in my running. I obsess about the temp, the wind, the humidity – especially in the summer. I’m notorious for saying, “This training run isn’t worth dying over” meaning if it’s 100* and 90% humidity – there is no need to do speed training or pushing it too hard. At my level, recreational, there is no need to get a heat injury or risk death . . . another good thing about this injury? I can just enjoy the warm summer weather for what it is – warm and wonderful!!!!
