Hi! Wahhhhh tomorrow is Monday and as always, I don’t wanna! I have the Rock and Roll Las Vegas marathon to look forward to all week though :). It’s crazy that it is finally here…
Before I get into the recap- my right shin has been giving me some grief since about tuesday and it didn’t feel like a shin splint. I was freaking myself out rehearsing tragedy that it was a stress fracture (luckily I really don’t think it is, thank God, srsly…). I thought it would be brilliant to wear compression socks under my boots to work on Wednesday, thinking that it might help. But obviously I had to scrunch them up kinda so they wouldn’t show. I think a crease caused by the bunching gave too much compression, effectively cutting off my circulation for 8 hours. Awesome. My shin was SO much worse on Thursday. I wanted to cry, cry, cry. The week before the race. I was beside myself.
I decided the rehab plan would be absolutely no running (dog walks ok) icing often, and hot tubbing. No foam rolling either, as it is tender and feels more like a bruise than a tight muscle. Just lots of rest and hope for the best. It’s definitely feeling better which is great, but it has thrown off my mental game. I need to just believe in myself and trust that I can go the distance, not to quote Mulan…
Anyways, onto the weekend recap!
Friday: Husband was working a beer fest, meaning we got free entry and access to the brewers lounge (unlimited free beer ftw). It was super fun.
Saturday: We took Barley out to husby’s parents’ house.
I kanoodled my husby as we watched the Duck game, and plotted. I am almost 100% positive I want to try the Hansons marathon method (HMM) for my next full marathon. I just need to decide the perfect race. But I need to run my race next weekend before I make any decisions I think.
Sunday: Slept in. Missed the NYC marathon broadcasting completely, but wasn’t that upset because… sleep :). I was delivered coffee in bed, one of my very favorite things.
I spent pretty much all day working on the garage. Filled the Jeep all the way up with items to donate, which felt great. I’m working on making a home gym in the garage that I will actually use, but I’ll save those pics for a separate post because it is no where near ready!
Ok, Time to sleeeeep :). Hope y’all have a wonderful week!
