This Week's Runs!

Thanks everyone for all the great advice about my aches and pains. It's so nice having all you out there to help me. :)

This weeks runs are going to be easy and light. I won't do the 16, that way I can heal and then feel better so I can run it later.

My Runs:
Monday: 4 miles
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 3 miles
Thursday: 9 miles
Friday: 4 miles
Saturday: Salt Lake City Marathon 5k
Sunday: OFF

My Goals:
My goals this week are to relax and take my runs one day at a time. If I can't go 4 miles I won't go 4 miles. I'm not going to push myself. I'm also going to stretch, massage, ice, heat, etc my leg. I'll also set up an appointment with a Sports Doc and get it checked out that way I know what's up and what to do to fix it. I'd like to be 100% by Saturday, but we'll see. I've also decided that since I'm not going to be able to run as much as I'd like I'm going to have to make sure to track my food and stuff so I don't gain this week at my WW weigh in. Which by the way....I lost 1.4lbs this week! GO ME!

I hope everyone had fun at their races this weekend! I can't wait to read them all.

Great job on the weight loss.

Sounds like you are being smart and listening to your body.

That 5k will be here before you know it. I hope you have good weather!

Yes, take it easy. You can probably still walk; just make sure your heartrate is up when you do.

I hope you have a great looking doctor.

Hey Cathy,

I'll see you there - I'm running the 5K as well - different age group though!! Staying at the Marriott overnight if you are going to be around. Looking forward to seeing you.
