About Me

exercise is my medicine. I run, swim, and lift weights anything to keep my body in top form. I am an RN, a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend. I am grateful for my life and each new day.

my shortened long run

When does an 8 mile run feel entirely too short? When you planned to run 14 miles that's when. 

 I set out today with water, my garmin, a granola bar, light clothes and kind of determined (that is the problem) to run 14 miles.

For about a month my left hip has been achey and I am mostly ignoring it so it will stop. Probably not the best plan.
I made a half hearted attempt to see a physical therapist but honestly never followed through so have yet to be seen.

So 8 mile long runs will not get me prepared to run 26.2. This week I am going to make an appointment with a sports physical therapist and start swimming to cross train. 

Win for me because I ran 8 miles today in beautiful weather. I love LA!
