Hello, hello! I haven’t had much to post about my workout recaps, because I’ve been trying to heal my foot from the heel issue I’ve been dealing with for the past several months. So I took a couple of weeks off to rest that, with just some light dog walking, and a short run or two, nothing equaling major training.
So after doing the whole ice, rest, and light activity for a couple of weeks, I decided it was time to get back into the swing of things, since the Mo’ Cowbell is less than a month away now!
My first official run back was on September 11th, with a 3 mile easy run. I can promise you, nothing about this run was even remotely easy! It felt way warmer than the 82º that Garmin is reporting it was, but that was probably a combination of the humidity and the sun shining aggressively. Plus, my lower back was feeling majorly crampy, so my pace was a lovely 19:04/mile.
I missed Thursday’s run, and didn’t get a chance to run again until Saturday, when I had a 6 mile run on the schedule. I headed to Creve Couer Lake Park and ran there. I had set an alarm to get up nice and early and get it out-of-the-way, but I didn’t sleep very well that night and hit the snooze a few times before just turning the alarm off completely. So it was about 9:30 when I made it out there to start my run.
My first three miles weren’t too bad, but then the temps and the humidity started rising and I started to slooooowwwww down. So there were lots of breaks on the second half of the run.
Sunday, I loaded up my bike and hit the Katy Trail for a nice ride. I used both Strava and my Garmin and I was curious to see which one was more accurate as far as distance and GPS and all that jazz. Turns out that the Garmin was more in line with what the trail maps were reporting for distance. Strava was over by about 3/10ths of a mile. So I had a nice 20 mile ride in, and then spent the rest of the day being a massive bum around my house!
I feel like it took forever to get this recap out, but I will be posting another recap very, very soon!
