Injury and Races
Workouts this week:
Saturday: 5.6 miles outside (it felt good)
Monday: 3 miles on the treadmill
Tuesday: .6 miles on the treadmill + half of a step class
Today: 45 minutes on the bike + arms & core
Yesterday during the step class my ankle started KILLING me (I broke it a few years ago and it hasn’t been the same since). Normally, I would just reduce the intensity and power through the workout but, with me running a 10k on Saturday, I didn’t want to risk it. This is how I felt walking out of the class before it was over:
Because of said ankle pain, I chose to keep my workout to a minimum for today. I am going to figure out the rest of the week depending on how my ankle feels.
In other news, my friend Indira has convinced me to run a 15k in the spring/summer and a half marathon next fall. The farthest I’ve ever run is 6 miles so this is quite the goal for me. I must say: I am excited!
Naturally, I started to peruse the internet for some good training plans. I thought I would share this one (click link for more info)
I am not wild about sticking to strict training plans so we shall see how it goes. In the meantime, I am just going to work on bettering my pace and increasing my distance over time.
Any good/fun Chicago races I should look into?
