First race post-accident

I ran the Taylorsville Days 5k on Saturday. I managed to go all race without back pain. I also managed to get a time similar to my time I the last race I ran. It was a pretty decent course, a bit on the flat side, but pretty close to exactly 5k. It also covered a lot of familiar terrain this year unlike previous years.

My Garmin said my time was 27:47, my official race result was 27:46. I love chip-timed races. No worrying about the lineup afterward, or tearing the perforated bib.

Recovery

Today (6/18) I went on my first run since my most recent accident. I only made it 0.7 miles before I had to slow my pace drastically because of the pain in my hip. I did manage to make it a full 3.12 miles.  It looks like my goal of running a half marathon sometime this fall is in danger.  I’m not worried though.  I’ll do what it takes to recover, then focus on training for a half.
