My left hip/quad has been a little tight this week- not really pain just feels off. Today is a rest day (I did some yoga this morning) but I think I will see how it feels tomorrow and maybe rest for a few days if it still feels off. I also need to get back in to see my chiropractor so this week might be a good week to do that.
This weekend was the first time I haven’t been away or had a wedding since mid-July. Its been really nice to just relax and get things done. Yesterday I made crock pot chicken marsala so when we got home from church at 6:45 we didn’t have to worry about cooking. Walk home from church
While I was serving dinner Rob chose a bottle of red for us to drink:
I don’t know how much this wine cost (my dad gave it to us- he works for a wine company) but I wondered if that cork was a sign of a good quality wine. I thought it tasted great!
Please cross your fingers for me that this weird pain is no big deal and I will be back to regular training ASAP! Is anyone else hitting their peak in marathon training and getting any weird aches/pains?
