I thoughtfully included a moment of Schadenfreude for you rather than a pic of myself. . .no exciting cast, just a lovely stress fracture(s) to boast from my running. I am enjoying a diet with a side of ibuprofen and calcium pills and a shot of milk here and there. I have a few blogger pals on here who are anti-facebook so I thought I’d make an effort to explain (make excuses as two said) for not updating my run log for a bit.
In short, a public mea culpa. You’re smart, I”m dumb. You’re very good looking and athletically superior and I’m great at watching hulu.com. So, turns out, after decades of dance and ballet, amping up a running program to prep for a marathon-I COULD have heeded some well “heeled” advice.
Stretching isn’t just a suggestion, it’s imperative–all the time, seriously. Old rehab tricks like writing the alphabet in the air with your toes never goes out of style even if you aren’t planning on whipping out some fouette turns on the dance floor this weekend. Rotating shoes, regardless of how cute they are or aren’t has to happen, ideally as often as every other day. Change routes or at a minimum reverse the route and TRAIL/soft surface running should take up more of the training program. Noted, in my pretty moleskine journal. My bad. Lesson learned.
Ohhhtay, one pic. 🙂 Missing running and walking “with purpose” because someone put the kibosh on that as well.:
Because somehow, “I break my own leg” reminded me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leEo3cXOyko
