Spring Break started today and so I promised Mai she could do some runs with me over the next week. I had a 6 miler on the schedule today, so she and Ki joined me for the first two. I couldn't keep up with her. It's annoying to have her running backwards talking to me and encouraging me.
Just look how fast those two are up there. The camera couldn't even catch them being still!
After we got home, I hopped on the treadmill for my final miles but only barely busted out another 3 before giving up. My butt hurt. Bad.
At our first track workout last week, Coach Glen said that if we had any injuries, doing track workouts would only exacerbate them and that we should not do them. I thought to myself, "I should mention my butt." Then I promptly did the workout anyways. Then I did another one this Wednesday...and now my butt really hurts. I had thought it was improving, but now I'm not so sure. So I came up one mile short today, but I figure I've got two big workouts on the schedule this weekend ~ A 30/5 Brick tomorrow and a 45 mile ride on Sunday so I would rather go in as fresh as possible.
We just came back from a huge burrito lunch at Iron Horse in Sellwood and since I'm too stuffed to work out, I'm going to get some video of Mai using our new Bosu Ball that came yesterday, courtesy of CSN. I will tell you that she has already mastered hula hooping and jump roping while balanced on it. I can almost stand on it with both feet for a full 5 seconds. Go me!
before March 21st! Good Luck!!
