It has been quite the week...I think I am still on a High after my Half-Marathon PR from last week...if you missed it you can check it out here
The Husband Surprised Me on Wednesday with a Package in the Mail:
What is it?????
A new Garmin Forerunner 305!!! Yay!!! I had an old forerunner 101 and it was starting to go wonky...Hubs rocks...he wanted me to have it before Mississauga and be able to train for Chicago with it...I am still figuring out all the bells and whistles...I am loving it so far! Thanks Hubby!!!
A couple of weeks ago I won a Giveaway by the Fabulous Sandy at Sassy Runner Girl...She rocks...go check her out! I am so excited to use my Lululemon Key Cuff this week :)
I also got my Runnerd Sticker in my mail from Candice over at I Have Run...Go check her out too!!!!
Monday: REST DAY
Tuesday: Recovery 6km
Friday: OFF/Sports Massage
I am feeling extremely stiff and sore...my legs are not recovery well from the half...this has happened in the past so I am not freaking out too much just yet....I went to my Massage Therapist on Friday...she pretty much beat me up...I was left sore/bruised (this is normal for me :(...). I think I was still recovering from that and that is why today's run was just sluggish and tired...I have taken the time today stretching and now am about to use my new toy...
I use my Pro-Grid Roller for the IT band and I used to use a rolling pin...It wasn't cutting it any more...so far I am quite enjoying this...I need to get a bit better with stretching...I am praying that things start to feel a bit better this week...I don't want to cut back my mileage any more than I have already....stupid sore/tired muscles...Here is hoping for a better week with them this week...Next weekend will be my LAST LONG RUN before the taper...I am getting excited!
