Friday morning I had one of the most delightful runs of my life. It was satisfying and just at the edge of my comfort range, but I felt like I could have gone on forever. I was running and smiling, for crying out loud. NOBODY does that.
Since I was doing well and had met my race goal, I felt a reward was in order. So, later on that day I went out shopping and got myself some genuine, certified, bona fide running clothes. Woo!
Unfortunately, I do not know when I will get to use those new clothes because later that same day it became apparent that I had developed bursitis in my hip. I am off the running until it goes away. :( Also, since I'm not going very far and not going very hard, I must be doing something horrendous with my form to have sustained such an injury. That's something I probably ought to correct, if I can just figure it out.
Here's to a fast recovery! ...I hope!
