Run!, Training

Week 33- Sidelined

If there is an upside to not running, it’s the fewer loads of laundry you have to do on the weekend.

Gotta find the shiny side, right?  Or try to.  πŸ˜›

So yeah, thanks to the UTI from hell and me not checking about the medication first, last week was super Slacker like.    But maybe I needed it?  I didn’t really have time to worry about my mysterious groin pain issue as the medication issue forced me to rest anyways.

Work wise, things are a little more under control after this week.  I finally managed to get my inbox to 50 ish.  Which is still not great but it’s way better than it was.     I treat my inbox like a to-do list so the triple digits were starting to get to me.   Now if I could just get my piles of paper under control.  πŸ˜›

So let’s get to the very abbreviated work out week-

Monday- 1.3 miles  I felt crap all day but I was trying to ignore it.  I’d been living in denial for quite some time.  I headed for the lake path to get in some miles but it only took one loop to admit defeat.  I had a problem and I likely needed medicine.  Grrr.

Tuesday- Rest Made it to the doctor and they confirmed my suspicions and my denial.  Ha!  Never been so thankful for medicine…until I realized the side effects.

Wednesday- More rest.

Thursday- 3 mile walk  I had an appointment with my neurologist so I was home a little earlier than normal.  I figured I would try a walk.   Walking is not running.   I listened to a podcast to try not being so bored but I so wanted to be running.


Friday- Rest Holy crap, I was so sore.  What gives- it was only a walk!!  And I know I have a hip imbalance but for the most part I can ignore it during and after running.  After a little walk, I felt like I was walking crooked!

Saturday/Sunday- Rest I really did think about a trying for a long walk but in the end I just didn’t.  I napped a lot which seems to be my MO these days.  I have to get a new bed.  I just keep waking up in pain and feeling more tired than I did before.   I just keep hoping to make it Labor day and hoping that there will good sales.  I didn’t exactly plan for this purchase. Grrr.

4.3 miles for the week.  Yes, I’m counting those walking miles, they freakin’ hurt me.  πŸ˜›

Now as for this week, the medication has been completed but the effects linger so I think I am going to do some walking/jogging intervals.    Fingers crossed!

How was your week?

Any good running?

      1. Yeah, I have a trail 10k in 3 weeks and half marathon in 5 weeks….eeek! I think I’m missing my running buddies, I don’t seem to be able to run solo anymore 😦

  1. Hope you feel better this week. As you know, I’ve spent way too much time on the sidelines the past 4 months. And, I can relate to the walking…during our weekend getaway, I had to settle for a 5 mile walk around a lake while Paula headed out for her long 16 mile run…I was so tempted to join but held off, though I was seriously bored after 4 miles of walking! I did manage 7 pain free miles on a trail run on Sunday, so I’m going to be very happy and thankful for that! Hopefully you are back soon.
