So after a couple days of
procrastination letting my tibia rest I finally did my long run. This run was amazing from the minute I started it. I had absolutely no tibia pain, I felt absolutely amazing mentally and physically. I didn’t feel like I was mentally having to push myself through it. I hope I have the same feeling when I do my half because my pace was amazing!
Also, without even thinking about it I had (mostly) negative splits:
9:38, 9:32, 9:32, 9:26, 9:23, 9:18, 9:17, 9:15, 9:14, 9:10, 9:22, 9:13.
I don’t think I’ll be able to do this again for the Iron Girl Half because we have to run over 3 causeways and I suck at hills!!
Unfortunately, my knee is now paying for this run. At mile 9 my left knee started getting very stiff. At mile 10 it started to relax again and held off until I finished running. After I ran I stretched and then drove home. I guess keeping my knee bent in my car for 10 minutes wasn’t what my body wanted because when I got out of the car I felt like I couldn’t walk. I’ve iced it several times but it doesn’t seem to be making that much of a difference .
Hopefully the pain goes away soon and I can move normally again.
Since running wasn’t the only thing I procrastinated about this weekend I need to jet and get some last minute homework finished. Have a good week!
