W13D6: long 10
After a treadmill attempt that caused a ton of ankle pain yesterday, I came home, and decided to move on and try to do my long 10 Saturday. I think one of the reasons so many people are successful on Hanson’s is that you can’t skip days or delay things. You just have to do it. It also causes issues with even small injuries. I just have to keep telling myself it’ll be fine.
The source of the ankle pain was an infected blister that I had apparently been ignoring. The swelling went down significantly after cleaning it out and spending time without shoes on.
I did make it to yoga. It was so crowded. I’m amazed how many people are there at 8:15. We worked on lotus today. My knees hate it. Anybody have tips & tricks?
I didn’t get out the door until the afternoon, but it was nice out. People in Bucktown are the nicest, in Lincoln Park, not so much. Sharing the sidewalk is just a really challenging concept. I had a watch pausing incident, and got mad at myself. I really wish my splits weren’t so inconsistent. Only a couple more “long” runs before the race.
Thanks for the compliments on my apartment! I can’t take credit as my cousin picked out practically everything.
And I’ll be running the Flying Pig in Cincinnati next May! I don’t know what possessed me in week 13 of training to sign up, but I am excited for the challenge in one of my favorite cities.
