I even feel more depressed than ever after following everybody during the burning river 100 on the computer. It looks like everyone is hanging in there!! I bet the heat in taking it's toll. I'm saying lots of prayers for everyone.
Got up this morning and was out on the trail about 8:ooam. I was pretty down that I wasn't running with everyone at the BR100. I thought that a trail run would lift my spirits and not be so hard on my back and leg. It was a nice morning although humid. Not many bikers out either which was nice. It was quite so it gave me alot of time to think about the race going on, my injury, training and the goals I need to set. I got in 18.5 without to much pain until...with 2 miles left I tripped and slid down the trail. It took me a minute to collect myself . I haven't fallen in a long time so I guess I was due for a spill. I layed there for a minute and saw my water bottle slid down the trail infront of me. When I fall it's not pretty and it jars my insides. No blood but I did fall on my bad leg. My ankle and hip were hurting and the top of my foot. Started to walk down the trail to try and walk it off and it seemed to work. Ran the rest of the way without trouble. However, I do think I will be stiff in the morning. To bad I didn't fall the other way, Maybe it would have pushed my back the other direction to help the pinched nerve!! When I got home,did some light lifting and abs.
This coming Thrusday, Keith, my youngest will turn 16. So, I decided to go Birthday shopping. I think the walking and spending money helped loosen me up. LOL. Talk Later!!!
