In other news, my knee still hurts a bit, but I've been icing and massaging it several times a day. I did go and run yesterday, slow and one less interval than I had planned, but I went. I actually walked quite a bit of it. Mostly I felt really stiff and I was amazed at how much stamina I had lost by just missing on day of training. Though it is funny that 14:30 has become my new "slow." I'm going to take it really easy tomorrow, I may not even run, but I want to make sure I get out there. I've been thinking about why this would crop up now and I'm pretty sure it's because I have increased my running time. I'm pushing my body much harder now and I might need to just hold steady in place of adding time to my running intervals. I really feel like 5/1 intervals are the best for me right now. Though I would love someday to be able to run straight through, I think that will have to wait until I'm not training for distance. Trying to push my distance and the amount of time I run is just proving a bit too much for my body right now.
I will say, my kids have been getting quite the kick out of my roller massager. I got a video from when I was rolling my foot. Every time I rolled it forward, S would try and grab it, she thought it was a great game.
You can turn off the sound....
no, really, turn it off, I sound ridiculous talking to her.
So I'll leave you with that and....
