It’s a new week and there’s so much going on! I’m heading to Late Night with Seth Meyers tonight, seeing a Broadway show later this week and getting in my last couple of runs before this Saturday’s attempt at my first half marathon. My training has been rough to say the least. My hamstring has been causing so many issues in my right leg which has caused me to not be able to get up to the mileage required so I’m going into Saturday going to give it my best shot and knowing I may need to walk part – that’s all I can hope for! (Right? Please tell me I’m right!)
The injury has also had me in flats for the majority of this spring as heels put too much pressure on my leg muscles. So sneakers are my new BFF. These fun pink Sperrys are great for adding a pop of color to a more neutral outfit (they also come in several other cute colors.) I’ve actually been having to go to physical therapy at least twice a week to have them work on my leg – my hamstring has been bringing up soreness and pain in my hip flexors, my knee and my shin so I think I’ve decided I’m not cut out for distance running (to say the least) but here’s hoping I can check this whole half marathon thing off my “Before I’m 30” Bucket List! In the meantime, I’m listening to my therapist about sticking to flats vs. heels (insert audible sigh of frustration here.)
My weekend was productive and restful – exactly what I needed after a few wild weekends of travel and responsibilities. I did massive amounts of cleaning and reorganizing of my room which was so needed and I did my best to unplug. I find that so hard to do these days. How do you best find time for peace and quiet?
