I took the last three weeks off to try and heal the little bugger. I had taken a couple of other weeks off in between trying to test it out here and there. But, that wasn't doing it and i needed to just rest it...the dreaded word...REST. The first week I did nothing. But the second week, I tried something new and biked, did the eliptical and lifted weights. This seemed to work wonderfully and aided in my sweat addiction.
I tested out my leg on Thursday night and ran a four miler with my training group (our half marathon is in three weeks) i was beyond thrilled to run it with no pain. This three weeks of rest thing really does work...imagine that!
So, I headed out this morning with a few of my runner girls + guy. Half of our group ran a different route and we stuck to our favorite. The miles were just like the title says...easy, breezy. Halfway through, it started raining and that only lead to the thought that I was even more hardcore than I thought.
I am so so thankful for a pain free run..in fact, I am really not even sore. We will see how long that lasts!
So what is the moral of the story? Three weeks off is a good thing, twelve miles in the rain is even better and bagels/lattes afterward are a great reward.
I know, I'm deep.
What was your weekend sweat session?
