Did you remember to spring forward this morning? I know a lot of people groan at the thought of an hour less sleep, but I don’t mind, I am just so happy it will be getting dark later! More time outside, more sunshine, I like it! This past week was an interesting one for me. On Sunday, I ran the Rock n Roll New Orleans half marathon and PRed!
I took Monday off, Tuesday I just lifted weights, and Wednesday my plan was to run and do yoga that night, but that didn’t happen. I did run 3 miles, yes…but I also took a tumble down the stairs that afternoon. I mentioned it on Facebook and Twitter but kind of forgot to mention it here I think.
Yup, lived here exactly a year and finally fell. I had socks on because I was cold, and I was carrying laundry down the wooden/varnished stairs. I slipped, my feet flew out from under me, and I landed straight down, flat on my back on the stairs. It. Hurt. I managed to scoot down the hall to my phone and call my husband. I got really nauseated and almost passed out! Luckily, I am “ok” relatively speaking, but my back is bruised and hurts pretty badly across the lower/middle section, and right on my spine where I hit. So…obviously no yoga that night….and Thursday and Friday I did light lifting and cross training, with a run yesterday. The run really made my back sore, so I did some icing and took some pain meds. So, here is the official run down:
Sunday: RnR NOLA half marathon
Tuesday: Biceps, abs, and legs
Wednesday: 3 mile run, fall down the stairs
Thursday: Biceps, walked 1 mile on the treadmill
Friday: Triceps, chest, 20 minutes elliptical
Saturday: 6 mile run with Bobby
From day two of the RnR NOLA expo
Miles run: 22.1
Cross training: 2 X’s
Weights: 3 x’s
Yoga: 0 <——sad times.
I had a good running week but with no yoga and only 3 days of weights, I need to rev it up again for next week. Oh, did I mention I signed up for another half marathon? Yes! I will be running the Gulf Coast half in Pensacola in April! That will be my last half most likely until Fall unless I can get away to run in a cooler climate.
I hope you all are having a great weekend. We are going to church and working in the yard today, it’s been a beautiful weekend!
QOTD: Have you ever done something klutzy like fall down the stairs?
