So…I’m still nursing some Chicago soreness. Icing my knee seemed like a great time to write this post.
I even took a rest day yesterday…crazy! Who am I?!
I’m so glad I did because I was able to run again today. I met my friends on the track. I wasn’t able to do the speed work, but I did log 9 miles jogging around the track. I’ll take it!!
Tomorrow, I’m going to PT for the first time. Even though I’m starting to feel better, I want to be proactive and learn how to stengthen my knee for future races.
This down time has been good to focus on what’s next. Here’s my race schedule through January.
November 23. The Flying Monkey Marathon. The course is crazy hard. Hello hills! I’m not doing it with a goal time…just fun (if that’s possible)!
November 27. Boulevard Bolt. It’s our Thanksgiving 5 miler. My husband and I run it together every year and it’s one of my favorite traditions!
December 6. St Jude Memphis (half or full). I still haven’t decided which distance I want to run. It just depends on how my body is holding up:)
BUT, I am running it as a ST JUDE HERO. No family or child pays for their medical care, travel, housing…incredible!! The race actually runs through the St Jude campus. It is THE BEST reminder of why we run. Any donation would be greatly appreciated….just click HERE. No gift is too small.
January 3. The Pistol Ultra. I’m running the 50k. This will be my first paved ultra!
What’s up next for you?
Do you run races for fun or are you always racing?
