Guess what I’ve been doing since the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler? Here’s a hint:
NOT RUNNING. My lonely treadmill looks sad folded up in the corner. Ignore the nerf gun on the windowsill. That
belongs to my son who forgot to put it away is so when intruders break in I don’t have to interrupt my run. What I have been doing is this:
Resting & wearing a Calf Sleeve. I’ve been resting my leg 100% since the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. It’s been 10 days this evening so I joined injured friends for pool running. First I had to buy the proper gear. Running Etc. helped out with this number. See the lady on the box? I’m fairly certain she is a sub-elite marathon runner on the comeback trail after a vicious calf tear. We were made for each other.
Aqua Jogging was surprisingly fun. We made it an hour which normally an hour would give me 8 miles on the roads. I do not think the pool running was equivalent but it was better than nothing. I didn’t drown. It’s a start. It’s a rehab start.
The Norfolk & Virginia Beach based running store that has been so supportive of myself and my goals is starting a brand new Ambassador Team Program. I am not part of this program but I think the idea is a great one and love what it stands for. Virginia Beach/Norfolk is an extremely fitness-oriented, running-loving community. I’m thankful to live here and train with those types of athletes who love to support one another and are passionate about our sport. Here is the link to the application and I encourage you to apply: Ambassador Team
Have you ever been pool running/aqua jogging?
Did you do workouts or just “run” for time?
Happy Training Everyone and Thanks for the kind follows!
