I had this weirdest dream that I was running in some funky race, with lots of families, all ages and sizes. The course was running through houses of all shapes and forms, through different rooms inside. Outside was all on sand or wet packed dirt narrow trails. I found myself getting lost on several "exits" and one of my relatives or friends would direct me back on course. The "finish" of the race was where you could have your family dinner together. The whole time I felt like I was running on quick sand and feeling hungry and extremely thirsty. Yet I knew I was supposed to be having fun because everyone was smiling or laughing. I got to high five my 84 yo mother-in-law and sis-in-law when they ran towards me supposedly ahead of me on the course. Finally I was on a trail that was completely covered with pine needles next to a sandy cliff that drops off to the ocean on one side with some houses on the other side. This was supposed to lead to the finish where I would have my dinner with my family. I made one misstep and about to fall off the cliff, hubby woke me up...he just got back from his early morning run. What a crazy dream!
Anyhow, instead of well rested, I woke up sore all over. My neck was so stiff I could barely turn my head. All my joints were stiff and sore. I laid in bed for a long time to "unkink" everything. WHY am I so sore and two mornings in a row???? I did not want to get out of bed but I was very very thirsty, and hubby was out mowing the lawn....
30 min elliptical
TM walking @ 6% incline starting at 3mph and increase 0.1 whenever I felt like it 'till 4mph. Was very tempted to break into jogging mode but resisted as the foot was very achy last night. 2 miles in exactly 32 min today, 1 min PR from yesterday! WaHooo!!!!
Well, I don't think I am making much improvement. It is disheartening to feel so stiff and sore in the mornings when I hardly did any exercise at all. Seriously don't know when I can resume running!!!! Sigh!!! :(
But, had a WONDERFUL lunch and afternoon and felt so so so so so very grateful for GREAT friend(s)! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
