Makes no sense

Running really makes no sense.   Sunday I ran.    I ran 5.9 miles.   I felt pretty good.   Yeah toward the end I had a slight pain in my heel (planters fasciitis) and my knee bothered me a bit.   I got home and I rolled my foot on a frozen bottle of a water.  

I then somehow ended up in the hot tub reading.    When I got out Todd and I spent the afternoon out roaming.  My legs felt FINE!

Fast forward to my run Tuesday morning.    It was slower by about 10-20 seconds per mile.   I can let that slide as I did tackle a road that I usually ignore because it's quite a bit more hilly.  But my legs felt heavier than all get out the rest of the day.   What's up with that????   I only did 4.3 miles!  

I was still smiling at the end though.


Bad runs....good runs....they all equal out.  I'm just hoping and praying for a fantastic run on October 5th!!!!

I'm doing GREAT with my training schedule.   I have had to make one or two minor adjustments due to rain or schedule conflicts but I'm doing it!!!


Eating.   I'm still not to tracking and I have broken my 'rules'. So this past week I don't think the weight has been dropping.  (I have been horrid with weighing daily too!)

Last night I skipped Zumba and went home instead.   I immediately fell asleep on the couch and other than a few moments of being a wake here and there I slept all evening and then slept the night through.   Not sure what is up with that...but hopefully my body recovers from whatever.  I'm still feeling sluggish today....I'm vowing to do Zumba tonight though.....

Sorry about the PF. I find my legs do feel heavy when I don't hydrate enough the day before!

Hope you start feeling better soon! That PF can sure be a drag sometimes. I occasionally get to where none of my tricks help relieve it anymore!

All workouts are good, even the bad ones. You're doing AMAZING1

Elizabeth said...

Yes, I agree with Jean :-)

PF hurts like the dickens, doesn't it!

Boooo for PF. It struck me 2 weeks before a half marathon in 2012 & let me say it AWFUL! Fingers crossed it goes away & doesn't mess up your training. I am trying to climb back on the wagon myself. Hopefully I will actually stick with it!
You are doing awesome with your training & workouts!

PF such a pain in the rear.... or foot. Sometimes feeling sluggish is the body's way of saying "I need a break" so it was probably a good thing that you took a snooze instead of going to Zumba.

I agree, running is weird and there's often no rhyme nor reason as to why you can feel good and then not-so-good. It will all balance out...you're doing great with the training! Although, I have to say the OCD in me would have rounded up to 6.0 miles, LOL.
