|Just look at that ridiculous smile on my face... and no, I did not pay $25 for a digital download.|
It was quite the internal battle but I decided to just call it a day at this point. Part of me still feels guilty, and thinks I should have pushed through what is likely just a sore muscle from last week's training session. But my more rational side knows I made the right decision. If it was just soreness, I'll be fine in a few days. But if the pain was a sign of a bigger problem, I made the right decision to pull back. It's tough to feel like you 'failed' at a run, but I'd really be beating myself up if I reinjured myself on a silly four mile training run.
|My setup this evening. My physical therapist would be proud.|
I took a rest day today and spent my Sunday lounging on the couch, cooking, cleaning, stretching, foam-rolling, and icing my pelvis. I'll likely skip my Monday spinning class in favor of a swim, and then try again for a run on Tuesday.
