So this has been a miserable week. I've been dealing with TWO sick toddlers for the past two days. Two sick toddlers with two ear infections (one each) that were diagnosed yesterday. My poor guys. On top of that I went to the dentist this morning to get my root canal finished and guess what? The root is still infected so I got all numbed up, got my temporary filling filed out, felt some serious pain because the Novocaine wasn't cutting it and then was told to come back next week after a week of antibiotics.
I could punch someone right now. Mostly, my dentist but I'll take anyone who deserves it. Someone in your life who needs a pop to the face? Send them my way!
I tried to resist running. I was good and focused on my walking and resting my leg all weekend long. This past weekend was the first weekend since January where I didn't run further than four miles. Crazy, right?
I couldn't wait any longer so I went for a run this morning.
Check out my splits:
I took plenty of time to warm up. I walked a half a mile at a nice slow pace to get my leg used to moving. Then I started running at a nice and slow pace to get the leg moving. Then when my leg was comfortable I ran at a normal pace. It felt good. I felt a little tired and wobbly, like a newbie runner, but all in all I felt good. I'll run again tomorrow and see how the leg feels for my 5K on Saturday. I had hopes for a PR on this but with the injury sideline I'll settle for a happy race.
Weighed in this morning, up 1.4 pounds. Not being able to run + stress eating has seriously depleted my weight loss mojo. But, I'm back on the wagon this week and looking forward to moving again! It's easier to avoid crappy food when I'm running. You know how that goes.
Happy Hump Day!
