Beautiful running day in Santa Cruz this morning ! The WOD was listed at a 5k - I'm running 13 miles instead. I just feel like running for distance today. I'll get some CrossFit training in this evening, hopefully Brendan will get to workout with me, instead of just coaching me. I have a feeling it'll be hard and heavy!! Good thing I'm totally in the Zone!! Yesterday I had my MRI finally done at the Pain Institute. My L5 disk has been diagnosed as "bulging" - have a lot of discomfort in my right side when I run now...from shoulder all the way to foot. Why don't i stop running you ask ? Well it's simple really - I CAN'T!!! I even started running with ice bags when the pain first manifested. I'm just glad I don't have too much pain anymore - just aches. Hopefully the MRI will come back with good news, and I will be cleared to run the many marathons I have planned - including Boston in April where i hope to run my fastest time yet. I tell the docs "fix me and get me back on the road!" Well - hope you all get out there and have a great day. Hopefully it includes running!!!
Thought for the day : "A daily hit of athletic induced endorphins will give you the power to make better decisions and help you be at peace with yourself." - GREAT advice!!!
