I’ve missed yall! I accidently left my computer at P’s house on Sunday and haven’t had a chance to do my race report (all pics/data on this computer) but I promise it is coming.
A few things to update you on and get your opinions…
I ended up in quite a bit of pain after the race on Thursday. I ended up skipping my scheduled Goofy runs and took off the rest of the week–it hurt my HBBC points but listening to my body is a must. I did the stationary bike and weights Monday and attempted a short run yesterday. Very minimal pain with 3 miles–which was great news. I still went back to my physical therapist today to be safe. He said its all hip issues (again).
Yes, I will admit. I slacked and I knew it. He said being a female (and getting older) will always be an issue with the hips. The good news is I can keep training and only have to go back for a few weeks. He literally jabs his elbow in my ass (piriformis) and it hurts so good. My IT band was/is very tight but it hasn’t started hurting-which is more good news.
I am thinking about not going to Miami anymore. I am not the type to sign up and not finish a race. I actually don’t know if I have ever done it. But, I signed up for Miami back in March. Long before I had plans to buy a condo and before I decided to do Disney. I only spent $55 on the entry and the cost just for flight and hotel in Miami will be around $1300. That doesn’t include food/entertainment/race stuff/etc. I could possible switch to flying in on Saturday but that would still be $1000. I think the responsible thing to do is skip–especially since I will have completed FL 3 weeks earlier. I still have some credit card debt and plenty I want to do to my house. I am planning on several drivable, affordable races for the spring in new states too. Thoughts???
