Listening to my body
Today I had planned to get up early and go do my hill training. There is a great canyon road not too far from me (and not too busy traffic wise) that is a straight uphill for two miles stretch that is perfect for San Francisco training.
But there’s this hamstring/glute/sciatic issue I have been having. I’m not sure which it is. My hamstring ached for days. Then I spent some time on foam roller last night and it was my glute/hip/sciatic that seemed to need the work most.
Today it isn’t bothering me much, but I decided I better take it easy and just rest it today. I can get back out there in the morning with my planned hill work and just have one less workout this week in the name of preventing this issue from escalating and sidelining me for a time.
18 mile run Saturday.
69 days until the San Francisco Marathon.
