Recovery is going well. My work schedule works in my favor of recovery, as I work every other day this week, and get to sleep in. My quads have almost lost their tightness.
I still have my eight inch long hematoma on my right leg. I fell at mile 15 at Black Hills-whammo! very hard.
My case of poison ivy on both legs is still going strong and itchy. It seems like the little different patchy areas takes turns itching.
I am on prednisone for this. One of the side effects of prednisone is weight gain.
I stepped on the scale this morning. Wow, that’s alot of weight gain. I am blaming all of it on the prednisone.
It was certainly a good wake up call to get back to some clean eating.
I am planning on running/walking my 10K loop around the block tomorrow, just to shake out and stretch out the legs, then go attack my weed-infested garden for my holiday.
Future running plans-I believe I am going to run a 5K on July 13 and a 50K on July 27, as long as the coach approves. I am pretty goal oriented. I have to have some sort of “event” to look forward to, while training, whether it’s a race or just a group run.
It’s hard to believe it’s already July!
