I’m running a half marathon this weekend. I’m terribly undertrained.
Yes, I did run two halfs less than a month ago. And since then, I think I’ve run a max of six miles. Maybe. Once.
Having a cold for over two weeks certainly didn’t help, and by the time I kicked that, I managed to tweak my lower back (thanks to tight hips and glutes) so I’m spending more time stretching than anything else.
I’m choosing to not think about the fact that I have to drag my body through 13.1 miles this weekend. I’m sure it won’t be the worst half marathon I’ve ever run. If nothing else, the weather should be nice and cool, which always works in my favor.
And hey, maybe all this rest and stretching will magically get me to an awesome finish, right?
Yeah, probably not. But a girl can dream!
Anyone have suggestions of good hip/glute stretches?
