Happy Hump Day!
I like Wednesdays this semester. When my classes are done for the day, it means that I don’t have math until Monday 🙂
I had grand plans of doing my 5 mile run right after class today, but then I decided I should do homework, which turned into running an errand for my mom… and then grocery shopping… by the time I got home, my motivation was gone!
I didn’t end up going until past 4, but I got in 5 miles in 44:50– 8:58 pace. I was quite pleased, considering that as soon as I started running, I started getting weird pains in my legs. Not quite my calves- is there a term for ‘the part of the leg underneath the calf?’ I tried to find a picture, but don’t ever Google ‘legs.’ Take my word for this.
I started panicking a little during my run because exactly one year ago, I experienced my first running injury- a random, sharp pain in the bottom of my foot that bothered me for two months. I don’t know what it was, because I never went to the doctor (shame!)
So in order to prevent further injuries, I’m going to be adhering to my normal injury prevention methods.
And ice cream!
I feel better already 🙂
Have you ever been injured? How do you prevent injuries?
