Running Digest: Run and Pig Out!
So, the past 2 weeks have been a bit intense, but my old body is responding nicely to the mileage, somehow the easy days feel harder than the hard days, but that’s part of the recovery process.
My ankle has bothered a bit going down hill, but the last few days it’s been dormant or it’s moved up to my hamstring, either way I have an appointment with the physiotherapist next week.
By the way, I was looking to get an appointment with a sports medicine specialist through my insurance, I was so happy to know that the closest one is 500 miles from where I live, so handy right? I often wonder why I’m even paying for an insurance.
I would amputate my leg my getting ready for the Paralympics would be harder, so I rather stick to the regular olympics.
I’ve taken Doggy with me, he took a week off, he “lost” the padding on his paws. Silly me was throwing the ball none stop at the part (concrete) and all the friction when he would “brake” destroyed his padding. He didn’t complain till we got home and I noticed he was limping. I checked on his pays and saw the horror, the next day I would have to carry him downstairs to pee and do the nasty, poor thing couldn’t walk.
Now he’s back in action and running as usual. Note the blue watch, it’s a girl’s watch according to the manufacturer, it matches my feminine side and my wristbands and after 10 years still works like a champ.
And just to close this post, the other day I was talking to someone about the motivation needed to run 30 miles in 2 days, for me is very simple. My motivation is food, just thinking on what I’m gonna eat once I’m done keeps me going. Back in NYC I would always have a slice of pizza on my way back home. I swear to Zeus, would stop running and start stretching and the smell of that delicious slice of NYC pizza would come to me.
I tried this weekend a recipe I saw on Agata’s blog, I used cheddar, but Agata explains on the recipe any cheese would do it. Not the most healthy meal after a run but who cares?
Have a nice week!
