Yesterday, my run did not go so well. It was not for lack of motivation! We went to our normal running spot in the morning, to avoid the heat. I was on my first run following my 5 minutes of warm ups when an indescribable pain ripped through my right leg. My son practically had to carry me to the car! This was not a charley horse. It was unlike any other pain I have ever felt! After gathering myself together, I was able to drive us home. But, once there, I plopped down on the couch, feet up, popped a couple ibuprofen and just rocked until the pain eased. The good news is … it did go away fairly quickly. After about 30 minutes, I was able to begin walking around again with very little pain. Determined not to fail and with no pain returning by evening, we returned to our “spot” and did a walk instead of a run.
So, you can understand my hesitation when my son called wanting us to go hiking today. But, I soooo love to hike!! And, we went. I am so glad that we did!
I am not sure what that pain was about yesterday. But, I am very thankful it is gone!
