Don't blink. Just run.

Where training meets fandom. And everything in between.

Face The Music Friday #47

on August 15, 2014

Saturday – 4.8 mile Spartan Sprint

Sunday – Rest

Monday – Rest/Chiro (ouch!)

Tuesday – 5 miles

Wednesday – Rest

Thursday – 1 hr OCF class

Friday – Shadowing a bit of Pirelli GORUCK


I’ve begun to wonder if my knee pain isn’t from my hamstring. My IT band generally hurt to the lower left of my knee cap, however this time the pain is more in the back of my knee. I did OK during the Spartan Race because we only ran a little bit of the course through flat woods and walked the majority of it. The true test was Tuesday night when I did my next training run of 5 miles. From the get-go it was still sore, but better, so I decided to just see how I did. The switching from running to walking was tough and it almost hurt more when I would stop running, but it never got bad enough that I felt the need to just walk home. It’s been sore since then, but I’m icing/Advil’ing/stretching/rolling and generally taking it easy. I did OCF class Thursday instead of my second training run for the week so that gives me a sort of extended break until my next long run (6 miles) on Sunday.

This weekend is going to be a crazy one. Tomorrow morning, we have dentist cleanings and then the cats have their annual vet appointment. I have a few hours of down time and then the Carnivores Tour concert that night. I am debating not going to the concert, though, for reasons I’d rather not get into, so we’ll see about that. I do want to see the bands, so it’s a toss-up for me. Sunday, Tara and I might possibly be going on a training ruck/hike with some Unleashed friends to get me started on training for the GORUCK Light I signed up for in October (which I can’t remember if I mentioned before). I’m kind of really excited about that!

In honor of the concert tomorrow, you get a trifecta of videos today. One of my favorites from all 3 of the bands I will possibly be seeing tomorrow. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

  3. Uggh I’m sorry your knee’s still giving you trouble. Hope it works itself out soon!

  4. I’m so jealous!!!! The nearest that concert is getting to me is Hollywood and I chose to the Ventura Half instead, what is wrong with me? Sorry to hear your knee is still rough. Have a great weekend!

    You know, I had some pain in the back of my knee that I’m pretty sure was related to super tight calves. I ended up getting Achilles tendonitis around the same time which the PT completely blamed on my tight calves… Might be worth rolling those out too. Hope it feels better and you have a great weekend!
