Chicago RnR 1/2 Marathon
jb944, I am a big believer in active recovery. Sitting around makes most back problems worse. Activity keeps you loose.
I agree. I'm walking a lot. Not sure the pounding from running would be good, though. And I can't bend enough to get my running shoes on! It hurts to bend, so I walk for 20 minutes, then go back to the couch and lay on the ice pack or heating pad for 20 minutes. Then get back up and walk some more.
Last time this happened, I rode 60 miles on my bike just a week later. It was just a miserable week getting it back in place.
Good job, Eryn! Mine looked like that briefly. I'll get back to it!
Jeff, I still need a reset to 6/15/09. Thanks!
30 days, 30 days, 30 days *doing a happy dance* and I have no empty spots on my bar graph!!
Ok, so I'm easily amused!

That graph I just posted will automatically update, Eryn, so you gotta keep on now!
No pressure, no pressure, no pressure... I know I'll keep going, I can't stop. Besides, marathon training has begun again! And this time I want to be stronger, faster, and hopefully skinnier!
120 days, still going.
Keep moving, helps with the sprained ankles (twice in the last couple of weeks) and the bad back (hurts if I don't run, but then I sit all day long). YMMV.

Ugh, I was supposed to do some interval work today, but this crappy weather is really starting to get to me. I still got in a good ten miler, but I just didnt have the motivation to run fast today.
Maybe tomorrow, but a friend of mine has been on my case to go to a Boot Camp session tomorrow morning at 5:45. I told her it would interfere with my running but still may try to go by anyway if I can get a run in before.
Chris, thanks for all the encouraging words for the crew in your weekly post. I hope your ankle gets better fast!
I ran 1 mile on the ankle two days ago, and it is still a no-go. I GOTTA be better by Monday since that officially starts my marathon cycle (and 40+mpw minimum), so I'm taking one more day off and buying a brace. I don't care about how slow I'll need to run to baby this ankle, I just gotta run and get some base. Especially with me doing something stupid as my first "20+ mile" run in August.
