So, heading out the door, I thought about how perfectly this training cycle has gone; no illness, no injury, and I hit allmy training and race benchmarks. So, of course Karma bit me in the butt. I rolled my ankle today, and strained a muscle up in my hip when I landed. The ankle is fine, but my hip hurts pretty badly. Awesome. 7:07 average.

After babying my leg yesterday, I tested it out. I can run, but I can definitely feel the strain up through my butt. There's no power coming from my right side. Hmmm . . .what to do? I have a few days to heal up. I was planning on taking Thursday off and running 2-3 easy on Friday. I wanted a fartlek workout tomorrow, but that might not be smart.

This may be a much slower marathon than I have trained and hoped for. At least I don't have the pressure of hitting a certain time or place. It is what it is.

Warm up and then 8 x 1 minute on/off and finished with a half mile at marathon pace-ish. (2:57,so sorta fast). Running easy the leg feels better. I can definitely feel the strain/lack of power when I push hard.

I'm not going to run tomorrow, and limit Friday to 15-20 minutes and hope for the best. I can run, and I'm going to race. It just might not be what I had hoped for.

"Right butt-leg" made me laugh! I'm so thankful for Allie!
