sounds like some cold temps. hope everyone can get their workout in, in some way. i'm a bigfan of the outside, not much you the body can't bundle up and take I figure. Although it makes workouts quite unpleasent. So last yr at this time I had an infected blister and couldn't run. This yr a new yr, a new b-day, 22 yrs old today. Sweet, can run this yr, and to top it off i'm running amazing right now. fell down at the start of my run yesterday, slipping on ice. smoked an awesome 15-miles. got progressively stiffer in the knee and hip during the day. woke up and felt a bit better, tried to go out and run, stupid stupid, stupid. Made it 9-miles out of a planned 11, prob should have stopped at 4. was supposed to do a fartlek, decided against that. than figured i'd go 11, than figured i'd do a recovery day. couldn't accomplish any. did 8.5 in a little over an hr for about 7:10 pace. than over the course of walking 2.5 miles home, i ran a random 8 extra mins at slow as can be, prob not any faster than 12-13 min mile pace. so calling it 9 on the day in an hr 10 or so, but real run was 8.5 in about an hr. So frustrated. i've been plagged with injuries over the past yr. infected blisters, foot run over by car, no fluid in my shin so it creaked whenever i moved it, and now this. up until this yr, i've never been hurt. and I'd be ok with it, if it was from the 90-100 miles a week i'm doing, but it's all random, freak stuff. Gah the double is out today, icing and hoping tomorrow i can move and not burst out in tears like today, sorry for the depressing post, some b-day. have great runs everyone, do em for those who can't, running is to precious of a thing to take for granted.
