Lent Day 15: Running Fool

IMG_1894

Why have fake flamingos when you can have real ones?  Unfortunately, flamingos smell awful, otherwise I would really like one in my yard!  I think it’s the shrimp they eat that turn them pink.

It was warm today.  We hit 80 degrees this afternoon, and I went for a run outside.  I was hesitant to run, there was thick fog throughout the day, but by the time I got home from the grocery store, most of the fog had burned off, but it came back later on after my run.  I had my last session of physical therapy.  Dr. Cory thinks because I am a marathoner that I should be able to do extremely hard workouts.  It was a worthy torture session.  I’m going to miss going to him, but I really hope I don’t end up needing his services.  I’m going to start training for next year’s marathon early.  I was going to return to Cross Fit this next week, but I think going to the gym and doing the workouts that Dr. Cory recommended rather than doing Cross Fit.  Cross Fit is too intense, and I think I could use something a little bit more specific.  I have actually considered hiring a personal trainer.  Which seems oxymoronic, because I am a personal trainer.  It’s harder to design a training plan for yourself, because you really can’t look at yourself in the mirror doing various movements and correct those movements.  So maybe having a second set of eyes looking at my form would help with running.  As of right now, the doctors and physical therapist agree that this is primarily caused by a muscle imbalance in my core, upper legs, and butt.
