Here I sit on a lovely April Saturday morning, all be it, the temperature is still unseasonably cold here, even for Minnesota, but it is Saturday morning, a race morning and I am sitting out.
Thursday I rode 10 miles on the bike and did Kettlebells, I felt a little off when I was doing kettlebells and the stretch hurt a little at the end in my lower back, and I realized I hurt myself. I think I strained it and jsut tweaked something and have hobble around for 2 days, slept on a heating pack and walked yesterday. I tried to run, but it hurt.
Now I am 100% Pro activity in any form, but if you are a runner, you can totally understand that going for a walk, cannot be compared to going for a run.
TOday was supposed to be my first race this calendar year, so I am calling it the season, which usually includes a race most Saturday morning through October when I consider serious racing and training done after I run the Mankato Marathon.
SO I am really sad to be sitting out the local Fetzer 20K that is going on right now.
My back is feeling better so I am hoping to get in at least some biking today and maybe start running again on Monday.
Next week is my duathalon and all 6 of us are signed up for the color run.
