It was not fast and it was not all running but it was 6 miles.
I felt no pain in my knee.
I still feel very sore in the right hip.
Not while I ran but after.
That is annoying me a lot.
I should not have to deal with other kind of pain!
I am having a hard time finding good ways to stretch my hip. Stretching the hip not the quads.
I use a strap and lay on my side. Bring the strap over my head and hold. (Other end is at my ankle).
That is what works the best so far and rolling it with a trigger point roller.
I remember being really sore in the hip after the OC half marathon. I thought this was all because of the power walking. Running that does not hurt but walking does.
I hope this is just the body getting used to running again.
After that 6 miler I am feeling optimistic.
I struggle with pace. My fitness is at maybe 60% of what it used to be.
We survived week 1 of back to school!
4th grade is no joke, first spelling test was Friday and tomorrow is first social study test!
First day of school pictures
Do you have Instagram?
If yes do you find that you blog less because of it?
I sometimes feel like I repeat myself here. I still want to keep my blog of course. I want it to be for my boys so they can get to know me better...know Caroline not just mom.
I am going back home on Friday, alone for the first time ever since I left 13 yrs ago.
I am going for a super short visit to celebrate my day's 80th birthday on Saturday.
I am taking the red eye on Friday and I am coming back home Tuesday night. Crazy I know.
I will spend 2.5 days there it will be worth it. 80 yrs old that is important. I am sad that the boys and Bill are not coming but it was not possible this time.
This is going to be a crazy week: 2 nights of meeting the teachers at the school, 3 days of working including the day I will travel and leaving for Quebec. Oh and homework and 4 soccer practices!
After if finishing Scandal I needed a new Netflix addiction for my treadmill runs and I started watching One Tree Hill. I don't know why I never watched that show before. 9 seasons and I had never seen one single episode! I watched all the other shows in that very intellectual genre: Dawson's Creek, The OC, Gossip Girls and of course my all time favorite Felicity. So now it is the Scott Brothers saga. Did you watched that one when it was on? Team Lucas or Team Nathan?
