Glass Slipper Challenge training – 2 weeks to go!!

week 16

Wow, we’re only two weeks away.  Even though four runs were on the agenda for this week, I only got in two.  You’ll see why in a moment, but I felt it was smarter to rest up and recover rather than push myself too hard this close before the race.  I’m really nervous now about the Half Marathon, and I’m just praying I’ll make it through!

On Monday I did one of my typical treadmill runs.  Nothing really out of the ordinary here.

Wednesday it was about 40 degrees out so I went outside to do a long run.  Another half marathon distance in, and a great time – but I started really feeling the pain by about mile 8.  I feel it in my hips and I’m pretty sure it’s bursitis, which there’s no easy way to fix.  It gets to be torture toward the end, so I’m going to do my best to get to yoga in these next two weeks and just stretch out that area as much as possible.  If anyone else has any tips for lessening hip pain while running please let me know.  The pain is only really while I’m running – once I’m done it’s just the typical soreness I would expect after a long run.
