This was an interesting week to say the least! Last Sunday, my back started hurting really bad and after a trip to the urgent care, some muscle relaxers, a visit to get a massage and adjustment at the chiropractor, and lots of stretching, I was starting to finally feel better by the end of the week. I definitely didn't feel back to 100% but was still going to attempt to the run the Cap City Half on Saturday morning. My original goal for the race was to PR (anything faster than 1:38:34) but by the time Saturday rolled around, my goal was to finish the race in a reasonable time. I'm not sure how it happened but I actually ended up PR'ing and felt really great throughout the race! My next race is a 5K next month before I head into marathon training.
Thursday: taught 1 hr Spin/TRX
Friday: 1 mi (8:00 pace)
Saturday: Cap City Half Marathon (1:38:05; 7:28 pace)
TOTAL: 14 mi
