HM training notes - Wednesday 4-miler

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Saturday's wonderful run was followed up by kettlebells on Sunday and rest on Monday. Yesterday was supposed to be a 3-mile run, but life happens... I had full intentions to run yesterday, but was asked to sub for my favorite class of kids (the 6th graders) and decided to spend the day making a few easy bucks and skipping the run (of which, I made sure to let all of the kids know that I chose to spend the day with them over a relaxing day to myself).

So today, I ran :) Since rain and snow are predicted for the next several days, I decided to take advantage of the dry trails and run my "Water Tank Climb" route. Besides, it gave me an excuse to wear my favorite trail running shoes which I only wear when I'm "off-road".

Total distance: 4.34 miles in 44:54 with a 10:21 pace. Not a big climb today - just 385 feet (most of the climb was the water tank climb).

The run felt great except for a weird pain in my right shoulder... Since Sunday, I've had an intermittent sharp pain that seems to be more nerve than muscle related. Other than being a nuisance and making it hard to get comfortable at night to sleep, I've been fine (I'm even unbothered by it when swinging the kettlebell, doing pushups and pull-ups). But when I ran today, it hurt - weird... so much so, that I had to hold me phone in my left hand. Even weirder, on the last bit of my run, my right hand was feeling tingly. Oh well, the joys of getting older :)

    Hey Vicki!

    Great job on your run! Maybe you should have the shoulder pain checked out, especially now that your hand felt tingly?
    Hope it's feeling better soon...have a great rest of the week!

    You made me chuckle a little when I read '... I had to hold ME phone...' A little British today? Just kidding... emoticon

    But seriously, I would have someone look at your shoulder if it doesn't get better soon. That's just weird how it hurts at strange times, and not when you'd think it would.

    I've been dealing with tennis elbow since November and it wasn't until I got a pressure point strap for it, that I felt immediate relief! It would hurt at weird times with shooting sharp pain, even without any movement.

    I hope you feel better and congrats on your run today!

    Where's our rain? The weather channel says rain for Friday and Saturday now. I wish it would rain tonight, so I fall asleep to it!
