after a talk yesterday with my massage therapist, i’ve decided to take some time off the run and bike. at least until i can get in to see him this week and find out what’s going on with my glute. i won’t say it was really my decision. i was all dressed and ready to go biking when he called and pretty much told me i was being stupid to even think about going. and he completely rejected my plea to run trails today. so even though i know it’s the smart thing to do, i can’t say i’m happy about it at all! i did get his ok to swim and i took advantage of it and increased my distance. i’m now up to a solid 1.25 miles of straight swimming. both friday and saturday i did a mile in right about 35 minutes (i have no idea if this is good or not) and then did an extra quarter mile slow and easy. i’m actually enjoying it. considering it’s been in the high 90s with feels like temps in excess of 105, the pool is kind of refreshing. but even though running in florida summer isn’t always fun, i already am missing my miles. i hope this issue is minor. as it is i’ve already pretty much decided i’m going to have to back off the goal of going sub-50 in the 4th of july 10k. hoping i can still pr but if i’m down for more than a week that likely won’t happen either. but i’d definitely rather not run that race than hurt myself more and have to miss the tri or even chickamauga so i’m going to make myself listen to my body and heal 100 percent now before anything gets worse. and meantime i suppose i’m just going to become one heck of a swimmer!
