I spent my weekend with P in his hometown at his high school reunion. I don’t think I have shared this before, but we met at our best friends wedding. He was the best man, me a bridesmaid. Lucky for me, that friend of mine, Tiffany, was at the reunion too!
I was definitely over-served which lead to no miles or workouts but had a great time at P’s reunion and meeting some of his old friends. And of course, his parents took great care of us and I ate everything delicious that his mom makes. It was a nice, somewhat lazy, weekend.
Yesterday I hit the expo for the Peachtree!! Tomorrow I’ll be running a 10K with 59,999 of my closest friends. I failed to take a single picture of the expo-it wasn’t too crowded and I registered for a 1/2 marathon for the fall too. I did manage to have a conversation with someone very, very important. And he told me I should run the Runner’s World 1/2 marathon this fall instead of the Amish country one (since Amish country is so close, you can still visit). I think he just wants to hang out-that’s why he wants me to run.
I haven’t laced up my running shoes since Friday of last week. I did make it to Pilates on Monday but wanted to hold off on running until my chiropractor appointment today. Great news!! No “real” injury-but my right side of my body is much tighter than my left. He suspects it’s overworking to fight the tightness. I was adjusted, given several exercises and stretches to do, told to make a massage appointment and see him again on Monday. I should loosen up soon and hopefully be pain free. I haven’t been on a completely pain free run in almost a month. It doesn’t make for a very good time. No running today either (doc’s orders).
So, back to the Peachtree. I’m in corral A. They are already giving heat warnings. Not expecting a PR at all. Going to see how the leg feels and hope for a sub 50 (A goal). sub 52 (B goal). finish (C goal). This race is always entertaining…
Monday: Pilates Mat 1
Tuesday: chiro/rest day
Wednesday: Peachtree Road Race 10K
Thursday: Pilates/possible run or elliptical
Friday: possible run/yoga?
Saturday: 10 miles
Sunday: no clue.
As you can see. My plan all depends on this pain. No fun.
