It was bound to happen

Yesterday I had a doctors appointment with my heart/blood pressure doctor. One of the topics was my running. Thankfully he was fully behind me running. We talked about stretching, training, etcetera.

He said that I was doing great and that usually the first 3 months is when you got the injuries. He said that I was over half way through with that so I was probably going to do fine from here on out.

Well he should have just tripped me going out the door because that statement had the same effect.

Last night before bed decided to take the kids for a walk. I had stretched out with the kids using and showing them the new stretches the doctor had taught me. About half way through Brae says "lets race" so him and I took off. I felt the muscle pull immediately. By the time I limped home I already had a knot in the upper inner thigh muscle. Matt had to literally help me to the bed last night. I slept with ice on it. I can move this morning but it is very slow going. So the run is off for this morning and I may just called Dr. S and tell him he jinxed me with his comment..lol.

So Kelli how is your heart? Did he change any of your meds? I'm glad that you can still run and that it is good for you. I hope you are on the mend today. We won't be able to meet you guys today for the movie. Let me know how you all liked it!

I can walk today but I didn't get to run this morning. It is still very sore so I am thinking I may just have to walk 5 miles in the morning, and then work up to running again by first of next week.

Hope you are feeling better. The run I told you about is the Tulsa Run. It is 9 miles. Rich really recommends it. I do too, lots of good free candy! Oh, yeah, fruit too! HA!
