Ah gosh guys. The Brooklyn Half is moments away and I haven’t had a good long run since the Cherry Blossom 10-miler the first week in April. My hips hurt. My legs don’t have any juice. It’s the pits.  If I had to boil down the cause of my running malaise, I think I slacked at : nutrition, stretching, cross training and doing my PT exercises. Should I skip the race?

Hi guys. This week was rough. My whole body started to hurt. I couldn’t get into any of my runs. Momma said there’d be days like this. I’m powering through. Here’s what went down.

Somehow I only worked out 4x this week. Is that right? I’m fine with it, but it’s very unlike me! Here’s what went down:

Monday: Didn’t work out. I pulled a muscle in my butt and wanted to rest.

Tuesday: Spin class at Flywheel with Lissa.  Earned my highest Torq score in a while (263). Totally recommend Lissa’s class if you’re looking to push yourself.

Wednesday: I ran 4.3 miles. I ran by destination, not distance which was a great change of pace. I decided to run to the reservoir, do a loop and run home instead of holding myself to set mileage.
