Sunday Runday 7/9

SUMMARY

  • Run X
    • Week 11 Total =  miles
  • PT 4x  X
  • JULY RESOLUTIONS: No desserts  
    • I had dessert on Friday.  Clearly the best thing to do when I really can’t run or exercise.
  • Yoga – 60 minutes  X

WORKOUTS

  • Monday 7/3 – Abs – Given that it hurts to walk right now, I’m holding off on PT and running for the time being, so yay abs.
  • Tuesday 7/4 – Abs – Still just abs for now.
  • Wednesday 7/5 -PT + Abs – I tried out some of my PT exercises and completed shorter sets of them.  I see the doctor tomorrow about my tendinitis, so fingers crossed I can run soon.
  • Thursday 7/6 – Graston! – So this isn’t exercise and no, I didn’t do PT or Abs today.  I went to the chiropractor who scraped out the bumps in my tendon, taped it, and iced it.  If you haven’t heard of the Graston technique, it uses a set of metal tools to pretty much literally dig into soft tissue, break it up, and smooth it out.  Feels almost as pleasant as it sounds.  He said I’ll be able to run by Saturday, which is definitely not the answer I would have gotten from a traditional physical therapist.  I’ve been freaking out about missing training this week, right as I’m entering the 2nd half of my training plan that has the longer, more challenging distances.  Trying to remind myself that I had an extra “light” week in here that I can take out and that it’s not the end of the world.  I just don’t know if I can run a marathon with tender tendons and not enough training.
  • Friday 7/7 – nothing – And I was originally doing 15 miles today…. I’m feeling pretty defeated.
  • Saturday 7/8 2.8 miles @ 11:56 pace – My ankle is extremely sore to the touch, but running went pretty well, though I’m still super cautious.
  • Sunday 7/9 – nothing
