When I posted my goals for 2018, one of my goals was to fall back in love with running. I've had one run since being released from the doctor and have only been to one of my free classes, from the health fair we went to. I was supposed to do an Orange Theory class on February 18th, but when I woke up on the 17th something in my neck popped and I had pinched a nerve in my neck. Are you kidding me?! I just finished 6 weeks of rest for issues with my neck and left shoulder and then I'm in pain on my right side?! This was not okay. I had to postpone the Orange Theory class for two weeks because I was scheduled for a 5k on February 25th.
Mom and I have tweaked our weekly schedule, so the plan was to start getting up at 4 a.m., getting in some miles (until we make a decision. about Orange Theory), the get ready and head out between 5:30 and 6 a.m. We have been doing this for a week now and have only been able to get in any mileage for 3 days. I know 3 days out of 7 isn't bad, but can we get some nice weather? On the topic of weather, you read above I was supposed to run a 5k on the 25th...yea, that didn't happen. Mom and I woke up and got ready, as we were backing out of the garage a sever weather advisory came across our phones. I have run a half marathon in the rain and I now know no mileage in the rain is fun. After getting the advisory I pulled the car back in the garage and went back to bed.
I say all of this because I am trying to get the negative out so I can move forward! My next race is the Star Wars Dark Side 10k in April! Training starts on Saturday and I will be doing the free Orange Theory class! Watch out for my training post this weekend that will talk about my first training run and my first Orange Theory class! I hope everyone has a great Friday and a good weekend!
***Friday Update: as some of you may know, I work weather and catastrophe claims for a major insurance company. Because of these major weather events, my weekend plans have changed and we will be working on Saturday! We will be running Sunday and Orange Theory has been postponed a week! Ugh!***
