1hr run (6 miles)
I got up at dark thirty this morning to give running another try.
I was nervous I would have another crappy lightheaded run so I started nice and slow.
I kept waiting to feel like crap but it never happened.
I was pretty stoked to have a good run. My hip flexor is still giving me fits from my first crash but it's no worse than it was before.
I know that is going to take some time and probably won't heal until after Ironman so I just have to deal with it.
Speaking of Ironman. I am still up in the air about what to do.
My Orthopedic Doctor is sending me to get an MRI on Saturday but I won't have the results until Tuesday. Arrrr can nothing happen fast around here?
I thought I had made some peace with myself over Ironman, it's just a race ya know. I was sure I was over crying about it and was calmly taking one day at a time doing as much training as my body would let me. I knew the answer would come to me and I was ok waiting until it does. I thought I was gonna be ok with whatever the doctor had to say.
Then he started to speak about getting an MRI or waiting a few weeks to see how I felt since I was seeing improvement.
"I don't have a few weeks, I'm suppose to race Ironman", I said softly.
Aaand then, the water works came and came and came.
Holy cats woman get a hold of yourself!
So I thought I was cool with everything but I'm not.
I'm wrecked and have a lot more thinking to do.
I do know I will not make a decision until I get the results from the MRI.
So we have that to look forward too.
Oh and I have a ride scheduled for tomorrow. I'm doing it on the bike trainer again because I'm still a big fat chicken.
Ya know, if I could just use one of those every time I left the house I would be fine. Think those are race legal?
