I am off to spend some time with my Dad for the rest of this week. I was going to do my long run today and then have some time off for the rest of the week.
On Saturday I did an 18 hour shift behind the bar for a friends party and it was full on and I was shattered. I thought I would of been recovered today so set off to do a 7km. I very quickly realised that my legs could not do It.
One thing being on the IC has taught me is to listen to the little things my body is trying to tell me. I came home only completing 2km but I am fine with that.
Went and hunted out a bigger case and packed some running gear. I will do some little early morning runs. I know from past experience I need to keep the legs moving after they have got so tired otherwise my arthritis kicks in and makes me hobble.
I will have to explain to my husband that I am only going for 6 days even though the case I am taking is the one I take for 2 weeks. A girl just has to have her running comforts.
It still amazes me how much I am learning about my body just from learning to run.
Happy running to you all
And happy healing to those on the IC.
