Maybe you jammed it when you fell, trying to catch yourself, or perhaps hyper extended it somehow. Is it swollen and bruised, can you bend it? It might be broken.feelin-great wrote:I really don't understand how I hurt it so bad.
Sounds like a plan! I'm glad your back is better.feelin-great wrote:But I will be running with my co-worker tomorrow morning. I think I will do 3.5 miles tomorrow and then on Sunday I will shoot for 5 again

On the return I had to stop to walk 3 times until I could recover, I haven't had to do that yet. I think there are four factors that played a part in this:
1) I had 1.5 glasses of wine last night - I drink maybe 2 or 3 times a year at the most so I think it really affected me.
2) It was a morning run - I am not a morning person, I always do much better in the evening. Unfortunately my 1/2 marathon is at 7:00 am so I have to get used to it!
3) It was soooooooo humid - YUCK!
And this is probably the biggest factor of what made it so difficult:
4) My running partner WOULDN'T STOP TALKING!!!!
Oh, my, it forced me to talk the entire run - she is a seasoned runner so these runs are a walk in the park for her so she doesn't realize how hard it was for me to breathe (especially since I have asthma!). After we started walking for the second time she asked why I was struggling so bad and I said "I don't know if it's the humidity or if it's because I am talking so much" LOL! I wasn't sure how to tell her to stop talking so I hoped that would be a hint. So she said she wouldn't talk the rest of the way - but that lasted about 30 seconds! I don't know how to tell her I run better by myself because she is such a sweetheart and she is so excited to be able to help me, but in a way she is kind of a hindrance. Luckily for the next two weeks we can't run together so hopefully by then I will be a little better conditioned, or maybe we will just stop making plans to run.
I didn't have my watch with so I don't know how long it took, but obviously since I walked a chunk of it my time was pretty horrible compared to normal. I am still hoping to get a 5 mile in tomorrow so we'll see how I do when I run by myself.
Hope everybody is having a great weekend!
