muck_a_luck: (Yoga Namaste Two)

Well, after letting my knee rest 'til it didn't hurt on stairs, I started back with Zombies, Run! and after two weeks of making good progress and running three days a week, I did something evil to my hip. Read a running advice book, and I think it was just a minor strain or overuse or whatever type injury related directly to the impact of running. I was also letting my FitBit dare me during those two weeks to walk much farther than usual. Most weeks I walk around 25 miles, but those two weeks I went 30 and 35 miles respectively, in addition to the higher impact activity. I think both my knee and my hip were like, "Are you kidding us?!" So I took a week completely off. And I'm back at it again today. My plan is to continue to run from zombies three days a week (the higher impact activity), but I'm not going to push hard for the added distance, no matter what my FitBit says. We'll see how my hip and knee like it, then move on from there.

Meanwhile, I left the zombies in the dust and helped to save Runner 16! It was a good day to be Runner 5! I stopped for some extra stretching, and I was really careful to stretch my hip afterwards. I feel good at the moment. The hip and knee felt a little tired, and the knee thought about maybe twinging. but I slowed my pace, and walked a bit more, and I think it's good. We'll see how I feel later this afternoon after I cool down and the adrenaline burns off.

I've been stalled a little bit on my work because of funds. Which may be a good thing. I used my week off from exercise to binge watch a bunch of videos about how to build replica weapons, and I have gone from thinking this was the thing I was going to have to purchase form someone else to thinking, hey, this looks really do-able! (And also, shopping for a scroll saw, but that is another matter. Ahem.) And I'm excited to learn that it should be ridiculously easy to include a reflective visor in my helmet build because this thing exists, so now I am definitely going to build an Apotheosis Veil for my helmet.
