I'm back from Colorado! I got back yesterday and got Allie from the vet, then got scolded while she ran around the apartment. She's always happy to be back home, but she has to fuss at me first. Or help with laundry.
I was visiting family, but I still wanted to keep up with my training. I may not have done all the strength training I wanted to do, but I made sure I at least did all of the exercises my chiro gave me to further work on my hips. 3 sets of 15 has me grimacing, but it's doctor's orders. I knew running wouldn't be much of a problem since I was in Boulder, but it all depended on my knee.
During Friday, I made sure to keep up with yoga, and some carb loading :) If any of y'all is looking for a great breakfast spot in Boulder, go to Snooze on Pearl Street. I had one of their specialties, sweet potato pancakes. This is only 2 pancakes, and I ended up taking a doggy bag home with what I couldn't eat. Their pancake size for their flight is smaller than the regular plate. Oh my.
Since I've run in Eugene, I knew I needed to run in Boulder. I mean, my parents live there and I needed to take advantage of the GORGEOUS weather we had. It was mid-60s, a little cloudy, but the sun did come out at the end of the run. I even felt overdressed near the end. I ran along Boulder Creek, on one of the many running trails in the city, and got the entire 3.5-mile run done. I never felt twinging or pulling, and it was definitely a boost to my confidence. I know I still have work to do, but I felt really good after that run.
Tuesdays on the Run with Patty, Erika, and Marcia.
