Misadventures with wine, weights, and running shoes.

The Weekly Ramble: #3 - A Somewhat Late Edition

Friday, October 2, 2015

What's New:
Knocked out my twenty mile road and nine mile trail training runs. Although they were tough runs, they were just the confidence builders I needed for the coming weeks. Unfortunately, my calves are angry with me now. Oh well...this too shall pass.

Training: There is nothing like a rough weekend of training runs to make you appreciate upper body work. It's also a step back week! That means lower mileage. Sweet! Of course, the upper body work has left me finding creative ways to change clothes - like hooking the back of my sports bra on a door knob and sliding out of it by dropping to the floor. Oh, and don't get me started on my leg day...it was Wednesday and I'm still carefully negotiating stairs and bathroom visits. 

What I'm Loving: Apple & Cinnamon Huma Gel - I even eat it on pancakes pre-run.

What I'm Listening to: Florence + the Machine, Dog Days are Over

Ridiculous Comment of the Week: "Your ankle is still bothering you? It's been months!" - a non runner friend who apparently lives in a bubble because she has never had any kind of injury. Ok. First it has been six weeks and not "months." Second, it can take as long as six months to heal an ankle depending on the degree of the sprain. 

Best Comment of the Week: "You are actually doing really well and don't need any needles." My PT, Brenda. 

My question of the week for you guys: What's the dumbest thing you've been asked or told this week?
