I ran 6 miles this morning. I had all of my fingers and toes crossed that the acupuncture treatment I had yesterday would help with the pain. It worked! My lower leg did not fall off and didn't even hurt. My hip was still acting up, but that was minor and lessened during the run.
Given how good I felt, I thought it was safe to make myself a plan. Rule 1 for this plan is: I will not go overboard with running mileage. Rule 1 refers to goal 1: crossing both start and finish lines in OT race. I will supplement my running with my Elliptigo this and next week just to keep my muscles strong. I will also continue to get acupuncture treatment as needed. I also made an appointment for a sports massage on Thursday with a not so gentle man that my girlies have been raving about.
If nothing else, I will be the most rested runner going into the Trials race in 3 weeks. That's right, it's only 3 weeks away!
Merry Christmas peeps!
