Hopes weren't very high today, but I was pleasantly surprised. Hip hurt before I started and I was sure I wouldn't be able to run. Nate had me heat, it started throbbing after that and I was like oh no. But I decided I'd try running a lap and if it was okay I'd keep going. Did a lap and it was alright. Mile in it was borderline, but I kept going. After two miles pain hadn't increased at all and running felt good, but I didn't want to jump back into too many miles. I'd rather ease back into it, adding a mile a day or something. Will have to stay flat I think, just did all of today's on the track. I'll try 3 tomorrow. Pain increased as soon as I stopped, so as long as it's continuous running I can do it.
Weights: Can't do SL RDLs anymore, lifting up leg attached to injured hip is too painful. So, my workout was modified even more. 5x6 SL squats, 5x8 green band pull downs, 5x8 DB presses, 5x8 weird hamstring stretches. Then did shoulder taps, planked one minute, 100 crunches and 30 each side crunches.
Talked to Coach again today, have been stressing myself out about a few things. I've been focusing on and worrying about the wrong things and it's been discouraging me and making me feel like I'm failing at running haha. But after talking with Coach I have some new goals to shoot for that seem much more manageable. I've also been worrying about my current performance much more than I realized, I have some track times to shoot for and really just need to prepare myself for track season. Track is my strength, always has been, so if I put in the effort and take care of myself then my times will come down.
Pool: 7 sets of 3 min @ 80% with 2 minutes recovery between each. Last two were at 100%. Good workout.
