The kinesio tape my chiropractor applied for my Achilles tendonitis...it hurt more for the first hours but helped a lot by morning and I didn't have any pain while running...I think it really improved circulation and healing
It was so nice to be outside in the beautiful sunshine the day after St. Patrick's Day. True to form, I wore lots of green and even drank green PowerAde, a day late. It was so gorgeous, perfect running weather. However, I died quickly...my legs weren't quite dead, but close. The run was way harder than it should have been on this my "easy" week. I ran to Liberty Lake from my house, finished the 12 early...walked some after the tempo 9...Scheduled, a 12 mile run, with 9 at 8:46 pace. My coach will think I am pushing it, and it truly looks like I was shooting for 8:36, but honestly I just still can't find that pace. Every time I looked down I was either around 8:20 or 9:05....I struggled a lot to find 8:46. Finally started to hit it closer in the last 3 miles, when I was SOOOOO tired.
So, closer than I usually do. I really, really hope the tapering before Boston gives me my legs back. I am way too tired.
This is the cute welcoming sign at my friend's house. She drove me up my hill!
