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.
take your time for recovery or you’ll end up sitting out the season and that would be worse. hard to do when you so want to be a part of it, hopefully it will begin again soon )
