Nine is not 13, which is the length of the Provo 1/2 on the 11th. But I'm getting closer and relatively pain free in the hippy hip-- so I'll celebrate today!
This morning I went to 5:45 a.m. yoga class. Before class I talked to the instructor (who is a runner himself) about the right hip pain. He did all kind of hip opening stretches in our class. It was amazing! I zoomed home, threw my running shoes on and went for a nine miler. I'm home now and feel SO happy and SO good. I have hope that I might be okay for the race.
Hooray for yoga! Hooray for running! Hooray for our blog where I can share this small victory!
M&M are you surviving without your running partner? And Cherl, what's your next race? Are you thinking 1/2 or full? I'm starting to think that I might stick with 1/2 marathons for the next chapter of my life. I'm enjoying the way that it fits into my life (as in, my life feels balanced whereas it can feel like running is taking over when I'm training for a full marathon). Who knows....
I think all three of you are amazing to even be out throwing the miles down so soon after having your babies. In my opinion, all three of you rock.
