The leg is holding up pretty well. I'm chomping at the bit to run again. I *need* to run again, and soon.
Yesterday I sent in registration for another local sprint tri in September. My schedule is shaping up like this:
mid Jul - 5K
mid Aug - sprint tri
early Sep - (tentative) half mary
mid Sep - sprint tri
late Sep - Oly Tri
early Oct - (tentative) metric century
Mid Oct -(tentative) half mary
Basically, I'm taking this big ol' break at the moment, but I'm hoping to step it up an notch in Sept-Oct. No worries, as long as I'm injury free. That's really the only reason I have so much still tentative. I wanted to test the leg.
So get this. Yesterday while making soup, I reach for some spices and get this twinge in my back. Now my back is killing me. Uggggh!! I feel like I'm a hundred years old. My theory is that I've been spending too much time on my rear while giving the leg a rest and that's why my back is acting up now. I truly believe that being active will be better for my back than sitting around, so I'm planning to keep moving even if I'm even slower than usual.
In any event, I'm hoping it's just a one or two day thing. I have a race to run on Sunday, some training to catch up on, and some pushups on the horizon with my name on them. ;P
You are being so patient -- I really admire that!ReplyDelete
I'm sure you're right about your back too. You'll get there. Your tentative schedule looks great!
I swear if it's not one thing it's another. Isn't that how life goes sometimes? GAH!ReplyDelete
I agree with Marcy... if it's not one thing, it's another. I feel the same way! Your schedule looks great, Lisa!ReplyDelete
Wow, the end of your year is shaping up strong. I agree on the back thing. If the muscles are tight, and you just twinge them the right way, they can zap ya.ReplyDelete
Looks like a solid finish to an excellent running year. Hope the leg keeps getting betterReplyDelete
It is always something! I hope the back twinge goes away!ReplyDelete
Hang in there! Your year is lookin good!ReplyDelete
You're doing fine! One day at a time...ReplyDelete
Hope everything gets better soon.ReplyDelete
Well, you were right...my stomach and core are sore from doing a freakin' 2 pushups (x3) yesterday. Apparently, it's not just about arm strength!!
I'll be doing the 5k, the Aug. sprint tri, and the Sept. oly tri with you :)
Don't you just love (hate) it when one injury leads to something new and unexplained?ReplyDelete
Looks like youre gonna have a most excellent second half of the year.ReplyDelete
yesterday i tweaked my back and felt a hundred years old also :(ReplyDelete
I'm glad that you are being smart and not pushing it and making it worse. I'm sure that you will be back soon. Take care.ReplyDelete
Glad you're still taking it easy. I agree, your back is probably hurting due to the sudden inactivity. Your race plans look great! What's a half mary?ReplyDelete
I hope the back feels better! I think you're right about keeping moving. Your schedule looks great. You have plenty of time to heal and ramp up at just the right pace. Go Lisa!ReplyDelete
Your schedule looks great EXCEPT that it's missing SOMA!ReplyDelete
The schedule looks great. I hope the back thing was just a twinge and you feel a-ok soon!ReplyDelete
Your patience will pay off. Great racing schedule.ReplyDelete
Yeah, the price of getting old, I got a backache too from who knows where..ReplyDelete
I think keeping active in some fashion is better for recovery.. Sitting around just makes stuff more creeky, I think anyways..
Hope the aches and pains go away soon.
I think you can get a Bert& Ernie jersey if you want one. Anything to bring more fun to all this madness!ReplyDelete
Oh, it gets serious starting in September!ReplyDelete
those damn twinges come out of NOWHERE!ReplyDelete
You're playing this smart. It's hard to wait, but you will be glad you did!
Keep stretching and exercising the core even on days you don't work out! Keep at it!ReplyDelete
