I can't even put into words how excited I am about this weekend. I GET TO RACE AGAIN. (Sorry for yelling)
My last 5k was in August, but my last half was in June, and it did not go so well.
This fall I had 3 (yes 3) marathons scheduled. One for Sep, Oct., and Nov. But because of my injury, I've had to cancel all of them. :(
But now that my ankle is all better, I can get back to racing!
I did two runs this week. I honestly don't know what is going on with my body. I started having knee pain, which the brace helped a lot with. But now I'm having pain in BOTH knees and in my hip! This all just came on suddenly. After running 3 miles, my body feels like I ran a marathon. I can barely walk up steps, even days later. It's crazy!
Friday night is the Black Cat Chase 5k. This will be my 3rd time running it. Charity and I always run it together, and it's so much fun. Not sure if I'll keep the sparkle skirt tradition going though...
If my knees and hip keep on hurting, I may do a lot of walking. But no matter what, I WILL finish and I will be so happy. After all, my Dr didn't think I'd be running again until next Spring!!
Anyone else racing this weekend?
