My body is breaking down on me
I am a mess. My calf muscle was so sore last week that I had to rest it so I wouldn't do serious damage. The chiropractor said my problem is my arch. I bought some orthopedics for my shoes and that seems to help. Turns out I also sprained my thumb. While this doesn't prevent me from running it's still annoying. I didn't run at all last weekend so now running is gonna be a bitch! Husband was still out of town so I decided Monday would be that day I start back up. Orthopedics were in my shoes and the weather was perfect. I was having a hard time breathing but at the one mile marker I was miraculously able to breathe. I guess my body figured out the groove and breathing was no longer a problem. At 1.4 miles I had to pause and stretch my calf muscle. Once done I ran almost 1 more mile. I completed 2.38 miles ALL BY MYSELF! Husband is mighty proud of this girl. To follow my last run - http://go.nike.com/0f1pdp0. Once I was able to run without lack of breath or cramping calf muscle I was actually enjoying it. I'm still not sure if I can do 4.2 miles, but at least I'm more than halfway there already!!!
