Running Names!

Dixie and I are very slowly easing back into running. Poor thing hasn’t had a good long run in over two weeks.

Good news is that I’m HOPEFUL that next week will be the week I can really return to running at the rate that this injury is healing. My “test runs” have almost gotten up to 1 mile, which is a vast improvement from the 100 yard runs I was doing about a week ago. I have been stopping as soon as I start to feel pain in my IT band so I don’t overdo it. My life consists of a lot of squats, clamshells, stretching and foam rolling. SO exciting!!!

I feel pretty boring since my training has basically come to a halt for the past two weeks, so I just want to leave you with this picture that Thomas sent me a few weeks ago:


What’s your running name?

I’m Marathon Fartlekker, soon to be Marathon McNumbnuts in 16 days!

  1. Oh my goodness….really?? REALLY PEOPLE??

    (…mine’s Headwind Gottapee, which is disappointingly lame. If Kevin and I got married I’d be Headwind Fartlekker which is SO MUCH COOLER)

  2. Niggles Von Streaker, at your service 😉

    Hope you’re back to running soon! I know how annoying and frustrating it is!

    Smellysocks Speedypants! Love it. I love Jen’s the most though–that’s awesome. So glad your knee is getting better. Crossing all my fingers and toes for you!

  4. Lastplace Nipplerash. Now that’s the name of champions.
    So glad you’re getting back to running. A mile is a huge improvement! I’m so glad your knee/IT band is doing better!

  5. Glad you’re feeling better and your runs are improving! Name name would be Lastplace Speedypants…kind of an oxymoron haha!

  6. Gluteus McNumbnuts…. Soooo attractive!
    Yay for 1 mile! Every mile counts:)

  7. Glad to hear you are almost back to normal on the running front. Hopefully you can continue doing your strength workouts, even when running feels good again.

    Haha, I love your soon to be running name! Mine is Ten K Firmglute. Yes, I guess my glutes would probably be quite firm after a 10K. 🙂
