This week exhausted me and I was barely running!!
After injuring my ankle during last week’s Half-Marathon in Boca Raton I was forced to take it easy this week in terms of running. I have been icing my foot and have been applying a topical ointment called Traumeel a few times a day, plus rest. Now a week later my ankle feels a lot better!
Here is my running log for this week:
Monday: Rest Day.
Tuesday: 3 Miles in the morning around my community. It was election Tuesday and we spent the day at John D. Mc Arthur Beach and Park with the kids. You kind of felt an anticipating atmosphere everywhere. In times like this I’m always drawn to the beach.
Wednesday: Don’t even remind me of this day… I was all night up watching the election. I think I only slept an hour and a half. The entire Wednesday I felt tired and drained. Even if my ankle had not been injured I still wouldn’t have had the stamina to run anyway.
Thursday: No running. I was catching up all day with my huge to-do list.
Friday: I went for a 3 mile run. I was thinking about whether I should be signing up for another marathon … not sure what I’m going to do but the thought is definitely in the back of my mind.
Saturday: I was up very early that morning. I just felt the need to lace up my running shoes and head outside. The temps have been cooler in the early morning hours but it’s still humid. I was so slow during this run, I just couldn’t get any spring into my soles! I hope I will get my energy and running mojo rather sooner than later. I’m sure skipping on sleep this entire week didn’t help my running energy either.
Sunday: I woke up with the stuffiest nose ever!!! Jim was working all day. The kids and me spent the day at home and then headed outside to the shore. My boys are such creative forces, they do arts and crafts for hours at home. We went to the playground near an inlet and the sunset was just spectacular!
My weekly mileage for this week: 12miles
