Todays run of just over 11 miles went super great! Tried to keep my pace relaxed and just wanted to make it through the run. A little bit of a twinge in my hip, but I adjusted my stride slightly to try and manage it. It never did get very bad so I was super glad about that. Got approval from the doctor for another 4 physical therapy appointments, just to get me through the half! Things are going well at the moment and I want to stay on top of the healing! :-)
Ran the first part of the run with Lisa and the second half with Tina! I definitely wouldn't have made it without being able to run with the girls, it's amazing how much I rely on them to keep me going. I am so impressed with how well they do! :-)
A couple of times during the run, I had to focus on things other than running and tried counting really slow to refocus my energy. It helped, though I never really did make it past counting to 15 :-).
I am super excited right now for the half, even though having not run 13.1 has me slightly worried. I am hoping that the excitement of "Race Day" will get me through the extra 1.75 that I will need.
Tina today did her full 6.2 miles today! She did sign up for the 10K and I have the utmost confidence that she will do GREAT! --Steph
