I don’t have that much to say today. Nothing exciting happening in my life at the moment.
Let me give you an update on my elbow. It’s almost over. I can do a lot more things with it now without hurting it. I had a PT session today and he noticed the improvement too. We decided to go for one more PT session in 2 weeks and after that it should be as good as new.
Yesterday after I walked Bella my neighbor was outside and we talked for almost an hour (R. thought I was out walking all that time but I was chatting LOL). At some point she asked if I still run. People in my neighborhood don’t see me that often because I run early in the morning. Her husband has to leave for work every Wednesday at 5.30 am. One Wednesday he called her around 7.30 am and asked her what she was doing. She told him she was still in bed. He said “you lazy women. I saw the neighbor running at 5.30 am and you are still in bed. I almost had a car accident because I was so surprised to see her at that time”. He was rather impressed that I run this early in the morning. I thought it was a funny story.
Yesterday was an active restday. K. and I had a nice lunchwalk of 30 minutes and after work I walked with Bella for 35 minutes.
This morning I had speedwork on my schedule. But when I turned on my Garmin it didn’t pick up the satellites. I usually wait till that’s finished before I walk out the door but it took a while and I decided to go. It didn’t work right because my first km I did in 8 minutes. I never run 8 minutes or more. That’s when I knew something was wrong. Because I didn’t trust the Garmin and I need it for my intervals I decided to cut the run short and ended up doing 2K (1.25 miles) in 15:44. That’s a pace of 7:52 and not correct. I haven’t run this pace the entire year, not even on my bad running days.
Rescheduled my speedwork for tomorrow morning and hopefully Edward II works properly then.
