Pine Line half done on to Cell Com half...15 days!!
Friday, May 04, 2012
Last Saturday I ran my first half marathon. Unfortunately it was not at all what i expected. Of all the days to have a super bad run where anything that could go wrong did...Saturday was it! I have been super down about the whole experience all week and the fact that my hip has been giving me major problems hasnt helped the situation. Its kind of a bummer when you know the walkers re right behind you. At mile 12 my hip got super angry with me and i started getting sharp stabbing pains in it. To top everything off after the half i was sick for two days. I should actually be happy about the fact that I did run the whole thing and that the hopefully now healed up ruptured tendon in my foot did not give me one bit of trouble durring the whole run!
Ok...enough whining out of me! I need to get myself remotivated and get my head straightened out because i have another half marathon in 15 days!!! The Cell com half in Green Bay! I have been doing a lot of stretching for the hip and the foam roller has become my best friend. Just did my first run since running the pine line half last weekend. I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it was, my hip is still pretty angry with me but instead of the sharp pain i got durring the marathon it was just a dull achy pain...I'm hoping that is a good sign! Good thing its time to taper :)
