Monday- 0 miles
Tuesday - 0 milesI got up intent on getting in a solid P90X workout. Threw on Chest & Back thinking a good 40 minutes of push/pull-ups would be just the thing. Well on my first set of pull-ups I felt a neck twinge and abandoned the effort. By the afternoon it really hurt and my neck rotation was limited. So much for hitting up the P90X this week.
Wednesday - 0 milesPajama day at work. Boss brought in donuts and I ate
Thursday - 0 milesMy neck twinge still hasn't gone away. Briefly considered a run at lunch and then laughed at my funny thought.
Friday - 0 milesSweet biscuits, my back actual feels even worse today. The neck pain seems to have moved to my shoulder and now radiates down my right arm. This is wonderful.
Speaking of biscuits, I could really go for some. Had our holiday party at work with lots of delicious treats. This Sunday we're hosting a party which will feature more delicious things. I WILL EAT THE WORLD AND I DON'T CARE.
Saturday - 0 milesYep, back is still all janked up. Spent the day getting the house ready for our party. Luckily running doesn't affect janky back much. I have no goals/preconceptions for tomorrow's race.
Sunday - Old Mountain 5k - 7.8 miles
20:45. 14th overall. Report forthcoming.
After a great race at OMF I returned to the homestead to prepare for our winter solstice party. The dog still needed to get walked so we did a quick loop through the woods over to the Narragansett trail before returning on Old Coach Road. Completely lost the trail early on in the woods and had to bushwack through a maze of Russian Olives before we found it again. Knee was finally beginning to feel achy by the end. Had a fun party and was glad a bunch of WTACers could make it. Props to the Gazelle for scaling my hill in his hunt for fuel for the winter solstice fire.
Weekly Mileage: 7.8 miles
Year to Date: 1,697.4 miles
So only one day of running this week but it was a good one. I'm feeling much better about things after the race and follow-up dog jog. Onward and upward!
