But. Its. Not.
My IT band is tight, as is my back… So I’ve booked myself in for a sports massage tomorrow.
We runners are masochists!
Anyway, I should be really happy about being discharged, and I am… I just need a few weeks of good running to get back into it.
Which I have had I suppose – in the last 2 weeks I’ve been for 5 runs, my last run being a fairly strong 6kms in 28 minutes – not bad given I’ve been out for half a year!!
It’s just difficult to get into my head that I’m ok now, and everything I’m feeling is fatigue and tightness for not having run for so long.
Anyway, in celebration of my fresh bill of health I have entered 5 races! -Three 10k’s, one 5 miler, and one 5k. I’m really looking forward to them!!
Three of these races I completed last year so I know what to expect, the other two I haven’t. It’s always nice to have a bit of variety in your races; old favourites and new challenges.
Here’s to lactic acid build up, DOMS, and walking like a cowboy but grinning like the cheshire cat!! (What a mental image)
