As you might be able to tell, I got a lot done today. Except for laundry (putting away a monumental pile of clean clothes yesterday did me in). In actuality, it was a pretty frustrating day. This was one of those days when I just needed a Mommy Time-Out.
As soon as my husband got home from work and I made certain my guys wouldn't starve to death, I gathered up my stuff and rushed out the door.
Destination: Kit Carson Park's Trails
Today's run was just the Mommy Time-Out I needed. Just me, my tunes, my camera, and half of my brain (the other half got lost somewhere in the dirty clothes pile... I'll find it when I'm ready to do laundry again).
My run went pretty well in terms of my knee/leg pain. The pain is still there but it isn't any worse. I've been making sure I stretch & ice it after I run. I'm also taking a rest between run days.
I think I ran a little faster today. It's hard to tell because I didn't follow the exact same route I took on Monday and I do not have a Garmin (or other tool) to measure distance. I just felt like I was going faster. I also included trails with more hills today. Fun stuff!
Tomorrow is a day off from running. I'm hoping to get some strength work in. I also want to do Yoga using the Yoga for Runners I downloaded today from Yoga Download. Thanks to Amanda at Run to the Finish for the coupon code... I downloaded a 60 minute class (audio) for only $2.98. The site also includes a printable file of the Yoga poses used in "class".
Saturday is supposed to be a group run but I'm going to do my own thing, instead. This is because the 10-mile trail run the group is doing involves a very steep, long hill. I wouldn't worry if we were just going UP... it's the DOWN part I fear. I'm going to do my 10-miles around one of our local lakes (Hodges). It's hilly but not a knee-buster.
Now it's time for me to hit the hay. (Yawn) Good night!
