My first official race since New Year’s Eve was today’s Femina Race and I managed to get below 5 min/km on a 5K. Not much, but every second counts… My chip-time was 24.26 min so 4.56min/K – good enough for me! And within my goal of 25 min on 5 K which my physiotherapist challenged me to do 🙂
Things are looking up with my injury for sure and my knee if feeling so much better. I seriously have the world’s best physiotherapist. He knows exactly how to fix all of me again and even taught me how to walk when he found out that my wrong gait and stiff hips were causing my runner’s knee – gotta love that man.
I had a really busy day at work and somehow all of the yuckyness (that word exists, I’m telling you!) disappears when I tie my shoes and head out on the race course. That’s why I’m in love with running, it can save even the worst of days and get my head straight again.
Now I’m off to make dinner for the husband and do some well-deserved relaxing!
