I did get some bummer news from my Chiro last night though. I told him about my positive experience with running and asked if I could start increasing mileage, and he gave me an emphatic "NO!". My heart sank. He has been so pleased with how I am healing he doesn't want me to ramp up too early and risk re-injurying myself. He said I have to keep it at one mile, with running and walking and we will review my progress next week. I completely understand this and my logical side agrees, but the part of me that wants to break out and get back to running 6 miles with ease is pissed as hell.
I need to be kind to myself and heal properly, I just see my half coming up on my calendar in 8 weeks and I'm getting nervous. I also printed the training plan for Dumbo Double Dare in Aug/Sept and the training starts next week! I know I can probably jump in after a couple more weeks, but I'm neurotic in the fact I want to go according to my training plans. Maybe I can see about walking the mileage instead of running it, I think I'll ask my doctor about that.
Well today is Thursday and time for me to share my Thursday "jam", the music that gets my booty bumping and my legs pumping. This song is a newer one that I've been hearing more and more on the radio and I turn it up every time! I've liked some songs from this group, but never been a huge follower. This song is just fun and was an automatic add to my running song list.
This reminds me of some glam rock anthems at the chorus and that's what I love about it. It's just so fun. You can't help but want to sing and rock along. It's especially good when you're on a run, the beat and hook just give you that oomph you may need. I love the energy of the song, it's going to be a regular on my playlist for my training runs (well, when I get to run). :)
I hope you all have a fantastic Thursday and have plans for a wonderful weekend ahead! Enjoy!
