Monday, February 28th – Rest Day

Tuesday, March 1st – 4 mile run of hill repeats

Thursday, March 3rd – .2 mile run 

Friday, March 4th – Rest Day

Saturday, March 5th – 10.10 mile run

As I'm sure you can see, Thursday's run definitely didn't go how it was supposed to go... It technically started during my Wednesday lunchtime walk - I could feel my left glute/ hip flexor was acting up again so I didn't walk as far and stayed on a flatter route. Then Wednesday night I couldn't get comfortable while I slept because it was still achey. I woke up at my normal time on Thursday morning (3:33am) so I could get in 6 miles, got up like normal (even though I could tell it still felt 'off') and made my way down to the beach for my run. Well, I have to run down a bit of a decline at the beginning of the run and right away I said "OUCH" out loud. I limped a bit to try and get my left leg going, but it was just not doing well. I gave it another minute and by two minutes in I pulled the plug. I have a 50K next weekend and am still at the beginning of my 100-mile training, I do NOT need to be silly and risk anything for a 6 mile run. (I really wish I would have just slept in rather than trying to do the run anyway, but I am thankful I listened to my body when I did rather than trying to push it since I was already awake and there). I'm not sure if the issue is still from the 50-mile bike ride I did in November, if it's due to my fibromyalgia (especially because we've been having some weather swings lately which can definitely impact my body) or maybe because of the increased elevation I've been adding into my training. Whatever the case I am going to dial it back a bit until I can get it resolved. Saturday's run went better. I could tell there was a nagging issue, but it wasn't making me limp or need to stop. Here's to hoping my chiropractor has an opening tomorrow and can help me out! 

How were your workouts this past week?
