Thanks for all the up lifting words on my last post about my bum hip. It is doing much better. No pain at all yesterday. I did an intense 60 minutes on the elliptical, and continued to ice and stretch through out the day. This morning I was almost giddy with excitement to try running. The 5 year is out of school of Fridays, so I had to do a treadmill run at the YMCA. (hence the witnessing of the Walkman hilarium [is that a word]) I was hoping for 3 pain free miles, and I got 4... YAY me!!! I kind of pushed the speed, but it's hard not to play with the buttons while on the dreaded mill. I finished my YMCA time with 25 minutes on the elliptical. I love to sweat. There is something so rewarding about all that stinky sweat I seem to fling across the cardio room. I dread running on the mill, but I sweat buckets, and feel so cleansed after a run on the mill, followed by some elliptical time.
Tomorrow is an easy 10 miler, which I will run with my hubby. Land Between the Lakes is next Saturday, and I am anxious to see how the hubby does with his first race EVER. It will also be my 14Th marathon, and 2 weeks before my 50 miler. Three Cheers for some fun running ahead.
