I went back to the chiropractor today and got adjusted again. The level of pain in my right leg has gone down considerably but it still doesn’t feel 100% I am trying hard to not be discouraged.
My girls are meeting up in the morning for a run, and I thought that I might be able to go, but I have decided that I’ll take at least one more day of rest. Two days ago I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to run, today and am afraid of trying to run again.
Saturday was such a hard day for me mentally that I just don’t think I can bear to have another bad run. I feel like it would be a bigger blow to my confidence. Damn the mental aspects of running! So I’ll rest for one more day and see how I feel on Friday. Long run is coming on Saturday and I really want to be up for that.
I’m not the only one having a heck of a week full of non-running. My friend Rochelle has the flu. The doctor said that she needs to take the next 4-5 days off to let her body recover. Ro is running the full with me in April, and it is pretty comforting that we have both hit a speed bump in our training program. The flu is no good and I hope she gets back to her strong bad ass self in no time.
