145 days til race day!!
The aggressive physical therapy paid off!!! I allowed my PT to do all sorts of unspeakable things to me like dry needling (who thought of that???) and exercises I hated, but sucking it up and doing what I had to do allowed me to successfully join my training group for the first run of the season! I took the run pretty easy and enjoyed just being there with my running buddies and made some new ones and I was rewarded with that crazy tired, can’t-keep-my-eyes-open-another-minute afternoon nap. I was most surprised that I felt like I had been beaten with a baseball ball all along my back and butt. I guess that’s what happens when you change your running form and quit relying 100% on your quads to do all the work. Luckily, the soreness was gone the next morning.
