Anybody notice how Fall seems to have not only many more 5K's, but the themes are a lot more fun? Maybe it's just Texas. I wanted to try to be ready for a 5K this spring, but I've decided to let that slide and just keep having fun and slowly building. Deciding to let the 5K spring season go takes the pressure off.
Part of this decision is my left knee. It's been the good knee during my whole ITBS experience and I don't want it to become a problem. I hit it many times with lacrosse ball rolling this weekend and I've got tender spots that honestly should be bruising. I was talking to my chiro and we were discussing run/walk intervals and he said it really is a science. I've found the 3/1 interval is working best for me right now, but I had to experiment with other intervals to find my perfect one.
This isn't easy, but I'm having fun running again, shopping for running gear, and building playlists again. I have more songs for my Like a Woman playlist, but I also need to take a couple out. Those are the first ones I put in the playlist 3 years ago and they're becoming stale. I forgot how much I love the Pitch Perfect soundtrack until it was on TV a couple weeks ago. I have the Bellas final and it's great to run to.
Tuesdays on the Run with April, Patty, and Erika.
