So it’s been a long time. I’m not very good at this but now that I’m graduated I’ll hopefully be better, haha. Anyways, track did not end how I wanted. I pulled my hamstring pretty bad during my mile and fell with 600 meters to go. I ended up developing a knot the size of my fist. It wasn’t good. I stretched and heated and iced it, doing everything I could to get better for day two. It ended up feeling better, but three laps into my warm up for my two mile, it came back and hurt. I dropped out because there was no way I could last 8 laps at a fast pace. I did run my 800 though. I didn’t hit a PR and my hamstring hurt a lot, but I was determined to finish at least one race before my high school career ended.
I took two weeks off to heal. When I started running again last Saturday, I fell. Again. I ended up banging my knee and spraining my foot, so I took off a few more days. I did run Wednesday and Thursday with no problem. I did the elliptical today, but plan on running tomorrow. I definitely need to get back in the groove again. It shouldn’t be too bad now that I can train for me instead of training to prepare for a racing season. It’ll be nice to just enjoy the process.
