I’m no marathoner. In fact, I’m pretty sure you can count the number of times I’ve run more than a 5k on one hand.
I’ve started and stopped the ever-popular Couch 2 5K (C25K) program more times than I can count, but I keep trying to reach my dream of running a half marathon someday.
I made it through week 3 of the C25K program this time when I decided to go for an unplanned fun walk/run. However, as I was running alongside the Charles, I got a shooting pain from my hip down to my toes anytime I even tried to walk. I decided to take a week off. However, when I went out to run again, I could still feel the shooting pain throughout, and by the time I finished my run, I was practically limping back to my apartment.
So, it’s safe to say that I’m injured, again. I’m not sure how long I’ll be out for this time, but I’ll definitely be waiting a lot longer to try running again. I’ll see what my body can handle in mid-June and hopefully pick back up where I left off with C25K.
Running was supposed to be a good chunk of my content for this blog. Since I’m sidelined for the near future, I’ve decided to explore what the Bikini Body Guide can do for my strength and conditioning.
