well i’ve hit the first real bump in the road. i am officially on the injured list. nothing major but i’m out at least a couple more days. early in the week i felt a slight muscle pull in my lower inner thigh but i truly thought it was minor. having taken monday and tuesday off to recover from the breast cancer 3-day, i really needed to get back to my run ~ mentally and physically. wednesday was my first attempt and it felt great. but thursday morning when i woke up i felt a bit stiff. by afternoon i felt better so i headed out again. friday offered very little time for a run and with the hope of getting in a long one on saturday, i opted to take another rest day which was likely a blessing in disguise. when i woke up saturday morning i could barely walk on my leg. and today it seems to be affecting my back as well. not good. eko’s orders are rice (rest, ice, compression and elevation) at least through tomorrow and then we reassess. with 9 weeks to go, he’s not concerned and feels even a week’s recovery would hardly hinder training and i’m hoping he’s right. i’m really not happy at all. i am not good at sitting sideline. i know i need to and that any attempt to run again before it’s 100 percent better will only set me back further so i’m forcing myself to sit on my ass and deal with it. ggggrrrrrr.
