AKA The Injured Man's Brick
AKA The Injured Woman's Attempt at a Brick!
Well I have been determined to go out and run despite my retarded knees. Even if it was just for one night, I needed to hit the pavement and let the fresh air attack my lungs. Craving running is a completely new feeling to me, but here it was. I had a rack full of running clothes just pleading to be dripping in my sweat and I was not obliging them. I felt guilty. Not only did I need to have that faint soreness back in my legs, but I had all these fun new running products to try out and they were dying a slow death just sitting there! So with no protests from Coach and tummy full of pork I suited up. No matter how this run played out, I was going to look cute!
Despite Coach's plea to stay close to home in case the pain got to bad, I needed to fly free. That meant heading for downtown. No matter what I would never be more than 2 miles from home. I hadn't ran in so long (like a month really) that I didn't feel like taking it slow, so I may have done the foolish thing by just letting my legs go. It felt great to stretch them. This was more of a run for the soul then for training, so I figured it would be ok if I ran and walked, I just needed to be out there. I could tell I was out of shape, the side cramps came quickly but those I could push through. When the knee pain got to bad, I walked. My one big fail was trying to sprint down a hill to save my joints instead of running, I ended up killing my hip. I should have walked down it, by I was trying to make up time! Time from what I don't know, I am always somewhat competitive I guess. To save the joints I tried to stay on the asphalt, but by the end I was hobbling home. So a bit of a run fail, but I was glad to have gotten out there and tried.
