It’s Early…I’m Up..and other Random Thoughts..

Changing things up and went for a morning run this Wednesday since I’m normally wiped out by the time I leave work. I don’t like running in the dark but…you do what you gotta do..with caution, of course!!

Some random thoughts during today’s run:

  • I wonder what that flashing orange light is up there?  I could go that way and find out.  Um…hello?!?  It’s probably to attract you that way so the boogie man can get you!  Ignore the orange flashing light!!!
  • Aww…all these people in their cars on the road at 5ish in the morning..that use to be me!
  • Ha! I use to be jealous of the runners out on mornings like this…now I’m the runner out on a morning like this!
  • Speaking of “mornings like this”– the weather is fabulous!!!
  • WTH, leg???  You’ve felt fine all week and now you’re gonna act like we’re at the very beginning of this injury???  Why do you hate me??
  • If my leg would cooperate, I could go a whole lot faster. It is horrible to not take advantage of this lovely weather and run faster!!
  • Okay, so I have a half marathon in 4′ish weeks…I guess I’m about to find out what it’s like to walk 13.1 miles!!!!
  • Is this injury ever going to heal??
  • Maybe I should just quit running for good.
  • Maybe I should get a second opinion about this injury in my leg?
  • Maybe I should stretch more religiously and perhaps ice the foot?!
  • Why is the body so complicated?
  • Why isn’t this run over already?
  • K is going to KILL me if I get hurt today and jeopardize our plans this weekend.
  • Maybe a run on Friday isn’t a good idea?!

I ran/walked 1.79 miles in 27:48 minutes, a 15:31 pace.  Which is a LOT slower than my pace was last Wednesday. I honestly do not get it.  But I don’t have time to ponder all the mysteries that is my injury, I must get ready for work!

Have a great Wednesday!!!

Got any theories about my mysterious leg injury?

What is your favorite day of the week?

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?

    Boo for leg pain!…maybe take a few more days off and start back on Sunday?

    Sorry you leg is not better. Me personally, injuries always due to shoes. Not supportive enough. Too supportive. Cold weather running here. Gloves, ear cover and tight this morning.

  3. I need to get up and run in the morning one of these days…thanks for sharing!

    Hope your leg gets better – having an injury is no fun! I would just try resting it, stretching, and ice. Maybe a doctor?
    Our weather is getting chilly here in Illinois and I don’t like it!!
