What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

5 Mile Run in Running Class


The goal for the day was 5 miles this morning. Sluggish doesn't even begin to describe the morning. I had a hard time staying awake on the drive to get to the River Front. I was so glad that I was meeting up with some other runners - otherwise I think today might would have been more of a walk than a run. One issue with early morning runs is time constraints. We all have to make it back by a certain time to make it home on time.

When we made it back to the studio, I was at 4.6 so I ran a couple of blocks to get my 5 miles in. Actually I went a little farther because on one loop my garmin hadn't been started back.

Good mile splits this morning. The last mile was slower, but partly because of crossing streets and having to stop/start - Mile 1 ~ 11:26, Mile 2 ~ 11:24, Mile 3 ~ 10:28, Mile 4 ~ 10:05, Mile 5 ~ 10:59

Today was my fastest pace for a longer distance. I was glad I had someone with me to help push me. I am really glad that I signed up for this running class.
