As many of you have noticed, I have not ran, nor worked-out much in the past 2 weeks, since the St George Marathon.
The week after St George...I purposefully gave my body and my mind a rest. My first real run was on the trail this past Saturday.
As most of you know by now, I had 4 falls. The last one was pretty fierce - hit my head, banged my shoulder and banged up my left knee pretty bad.
I didn't realize until I got home the severity of my trail wounds. I know nothing is broken, but I looked like I have obsessively picked at my body, from head to toe.
BTW, I don't like to post pictures of my running wounds, bruises, hanging toenails and such. I find that really gross & creepy, when others do it. But, to each their own.
So...this week has been a bummer week. The most I am able to do is Ab workouts, Arms and some Hammie/Glutes.
I feel the knee is doing better, a lot better. While walking around isn't difficult anymore, I know the impact of running would hinder my healing.
My hope is to get a light jog within the next day or two or at least a good powerwalk.
The body needs time to heal.
Rest & healing is a part of training.
