The Rest of the Rollercoaster

Ok, so picking up where I left off…
New sneakers in tow I headed to our running group on Thursday night. It was HOT. But those are the days when finishing a tough workout makes you feel like you can achieve anything. We did a 10 minute warm up, followed by strength intervals of 5, 7 and 3 minutes with only a minute of rest in between. Then we finished up with a 10 minute cool down. It was tough, but I felt like for the first time since the hill workouts, I was able to finish a workout without having to lay off early. It felt good.

The got even better from there. I finally got to see one of my best friends who was back in town from Seattle with her baby! It was great to see her and although I may be biased he might be the most adorable kid I’ve seen in a long time.

Friday it was back to spine doc. He’s one of those people that’s very book smart, but he has no people skills. The good news is I can still run. I just have to see him again in 6 months for an x-ray. The bad news is he wants me to follow up with a sports medicine specialist about my shins. I’m torn. On one hand I am so done with doctors. On the other hand, as my dad pointed out, it would be free this year since we’ve met our insurance deductible. As for right now, I’m not doing anything until I get back from Israel. Hopefully the little break will be just what I need and I’ll be able to start training in earnest for the triathlon. If not, well, then I guess I’m going to need to find a sports medicine specialist.

Saturday was the Race for the Cure, and that deserves a post of its own…
