Monthly Recap: November 2011

Since we are more than halfway through December I guess now would be a good time to recap November.

What can I say about November?  I had several appointments for ART treatments, with sports specialists, and with physical therapists.  But, no running. 

November definitely wasn’t the month I thought, and planned, it to be.  I should have been finishing up my peak mileage for CIM and beginning to taper but instead I was having trouble walking without limping, cross training when possible and doing several exercises to build up my glute/hip strength to get past my injury.

I walked two races:  the Elk Grove Fun Run 5k #4 for 2011 and The Run to Feed the Hungry.  And even though I had held out hope to run CIM --- by the end of the month I was at peace with the realization that it wasn’t going to happen. 

I finally finished reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.  I continued to read ChiRunning:  A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-Free Running by Danny Dreyer and Katherine Dreyer and began reading To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.  I spent a lot of my time job hunting and fretting about not being able to run.

I'd like to read Chi Running, it's on my list. I too have been job searching. I work part time, but looking for full time, frustrating!!
