1. I'm feeling pretty massively overwhelmed by life right now. I'm swamped at work, we have some things cooking at home that are keeping us busy, and somehow I'm supposed to run a half marathon next weekend. I'm glad that I'm not in a rigid training schedule right now as I'd be feeling guilty about my serious inability to adhere to it. If I can get through about next Monday, things should calm down a bit and I can hopefully catch up on the rest of life - both my own and yours!
2. I still haven't decided on a goal for Richmond. I'd like to set some sort of rough time goal just so I have a place to start as far as pace. I was hoping that the 14+ I ran last weekend would give me a good idea of where I am, but that 14 was coming off the highest-mileage week I've had since February and my tired legs gave me a big fat middle finger when I tried to pick it up a bit at the end. I'm planning on running 8-10 this weekend on more rested legs and am hoping that gives me a better sense of where I'm at.
3. I'm going back out to Active Spine and Sport next week for my gait check-up. I'm still dealing with a tight right adductor and hip flexor, which tells me that as much as I feel like I've made some big improvements with my gait, I'm not quite there yet. Hopefully he'll give me a tiny weird exercise to do that will be the final tweak to what has been a very long process of fixing my broken ass.
Happy Thursday, everyone! I'm drowning over here, leave me a knock-knock joke or something to laugh at if you would.
