Long time no post eh?
Alright, I've been way out of running for a few weeks. Maybe like 6.
Running here and there, putting in mileage every week but I haven't been into it.
Well, IM BACK!
Back and unfortunately having some problems. My hip flexors/abductors absolutely murdered me during my half. I mean, mile 7 out I was in so much pain and it was so weird because it'd never happened before. Well now it's a reoccurring theme. I'm icing and taking care of them, they've kinda radiated down to my knees, specifically my left, but it's still annoying when I want to come back with crazy-I-missed-running-mileage.
Since last Sunday I've put in about 28 miles. Not bad for a week and a half! My body feels good, feels like it's getting back to normal actually, even the aches and pain feel good.
I'm now working in a lab as a research undergrad-help-assistant-monkey-sidekick for a grad student. It's very interesting and I like the work so far. Kinda tedious, but I get to do other things in between...like blog! oh hey that's what I'm doing right now!
So my summer consists of lab work, 20 hours a week, grading papers and running/training my little butt off. I've got some new goals for shorter distances now.
5k: sub 25 (ouch)
10k: sub 50 (maybe not this summer but we'll see)
Half: still sub 2 hours. It's gonna happen. Soon.
In other news I've picked my camera back up again, so I will part you all for now with a fave photo I took this weekend.
