It was a perfect day for a run, but it wasn't a perfect run. Around mile 3 I started to feel a little twinge in my groin area, which only got worse and worse as the run went on. It was fine until I exited the park to turn home, but when I had to stop for a light and then start again, WHAM! debilitating pain. I just couldn't run anything further- I think I could deal with it in the park since I was running a consistent pace/stride, but starting/stopping on the streets gave me time to actually realize how badly it hurt. So even though I was less than a mile from home, I threw in the towel and got in a cab (this is how badly I was hurting).
I took some Aleve, starting icing the area, and even put on biking shorts for compression. This morning it's not much better, and a scan on the Runner's World Forum for 'groin pain' did nothing to alleviate any worries. So from now until the pain goes away, I'll be sitting on the couch, resting. No running, no elliptical, no yoga, no Jillian. I'm hoping that a few days off will make me well enough to run the NYC 1/2 on Sunday, but I'll just have to wait and see- the absolute worst thing would be to 'power through' and just end up worse off than I was! Drats! I really wanted to see what I could do during this race!
But the weekend wasn't all bad... besides the injury it was actually pretty great!
It started off with a trip to the Rent The Runway showroom to pick out a dress for an upcoming wedding. So fun! My friend Em and I tried on just about every dress in stock... and the best part? No sticker shock since the rental prices are so affordable!
|The exhibit was 'Splendid Playground,' which was so fun to explore!|
