3/22 Saturday- Run 9 3 miles

9 miles was on the schedule.  It was in the 60s which is perfect running weather.  I set out for my run and it was going well, I’d planned to run on the Custis Trail down into Rosslyn and cross over the Key Bridge and then turn back.  As I was running down into Rosslyn I tripped on I’m not sure what, a crack in the sidewalk?  I scraped up my left palm but my knees are fine.  I had the water bottle strapped to my right hand so that took some of the force too.  My right hip was killing me and I wasn’t sure what was wrong so I called Zac to come pick me up.  Thankfully I was running along the road at this point and not on a remote part of the trail where a car couldn’t go.  I got home and stood in a hot shower, stretched it out a bit and then pretty much laid on the couch for the rest of the night.  My hip is still sore today (Monday) so I plan on trying the bike or the elliptical today to see if either of those help loosen it up.

3/16 Sunday- Run 6.5 miles

I originally had 8.5 miles on the schedule for Saturday.  We had lots of errands to do the remaining prep for my bridal shower so that didn’t happen.  I got up on Sunday with enough time to run the 8.5 miles, but the Rails to Trails trail was only plowed out to 3 miles!  I ran the extra quarter mile thinking maybe I’d get to where it was plowed again but no such luck.  My feet kept punching through the snow so I just turned back then.  With going slow on the few icy parts of the trail I ended up being out for 1 hour and 20 minutes so it was still a solid run.  My shoes were so muddy though!

What an awful run.  My stomach did not feel well during the run for some reason and towards the end, my right hip was hurting as well.  There was lots of walking.  I’m proud of myself for pushing through and getting the 8 miles in, although I didn’t have much choice since I had to get back somehow!  Hopefully next weeks runs are better!

20140222 Twilight RunThoughts on the week:

I didn’t do much other than running this week.  Next week I need to get my cross training up.  I was loving the weather this week, I even wore shorts on my run on Saturday afternoon! I think I may need a change of scenery for the long runs, I’ve been running the same direction on the trail and got to a big busy intersection at my 3.5 mile turnaround.  I’ll have to look at the trail map and see where some other paths link up for my upcoming runs.

Workouts This Week

Weekday treadmill running again this week due to snow.  I had to move my long run to Sunday as well because it was snowing on Saturday morning.  This week the treadmill was a bit more manageable because I could watch the Olympics!
