As I said on Instagram the other day: Every day is a good day for a run. Some days are definitely better than others. I truly appreciate each step I take and feel gratitude for every run. After my run went well on Saturday, I was thinking about how it was a good day for a run (I was feeling good, no blister issues, weather was cooperating…). But then I remembered that even when things don’t go right, I’m still happy to be running.
Monday: Soft tissue work, Strength Training Week 5 Day 1
I can’t believe I’m already in week 5 of my strength training plan! One more week to go. I’ll find out about options for continuing this week.
Tuesday: Soft tissue work, dynamic mobility, 4 mile run
I headed out a little later since I was off for the 4th of July. It was nice to not be rushed during the week!
Wednesday: Soft tissue work, stability exercises, 3 mile run
I decided to run in a hilly area for this run, and surprised myself with my pace. I tried my orthotics in the Launch and I don’t think my feet liked them.
Thursday: Soft tissue work, Strength Training Week 5 Day 2
Second strength training workout of the week. Just two more sessions to go! This was a really hectic week at work and I could tell my brain wasn’t working quite right when I ended up wearing my shirt inside out for my workout!
Friday, Soft tissue work, 30 minutes on spin bike, static mobility
I have finally been getting back on the spin bike. I love being outside this time of year but its also good to cross train and give myself a break from running.
Saturday: Soft tissue work, dynamic mobility, 4 mile run
This was the run I mentioned earlier, where everything went pretty well. It was a good day for running! (Isn’t every day?!)
I go back to the podiatrist on Tuesday for a follow-up. I’m going to tell him about the blister and see what he says. I don’t feel like I have really been able to run in the orthotics as much as I would like but I don’t really have any complaints other than the blister. As I’ve said before, I won’t be able to say that they help until I’ve gone months without pain.
