10K: 腕の痛み Arm Pain

69分6秒、ギリギリ70分を切れるところまできました。 The last 10K run took 69:06, so I broke 70 minutes.

結果はいいんですが、腕が痛くて思うように走れませんでした。 The result was not so bad, but I couldn’t run well because my arms hurt so bad.

何、それ?って思われそうですが、走る時には腕もリズムをつけて振りますよね。それが出来ないんです。 “Arms for running?” you may ask, but we swing arms when we run. And I can’t do it well because of the pain.

過去30年のつもり積もったコンピュータの使いすぎで、腕が痛くて夜も寝られないくて痛み止め薬を飲んでます。医者からしばらくコンピュータ、iPad、iPhone使用禁止令も出ています。 My doctor told me not to use my computer, iPad, and iPhone for a while. It’s because the pain is coming from heavy use on them. I’ve ignored the pain over the past 30 years, but my arms are screaming instead. I am taking Advil to sleep because of the pain.

5日間休んでいたので、少しはいいような気がします。さあ、走る事に集中しましょう。I feel somewhat better because of the five days of rest. So I should focus on running now.

明日は、この界隈のレースではご夫婦揃って何度も優勝している人たちと走ります。お誘い受けてとっても光栄なんですが、レベル違いすぎでドキドキしてます。 I am going to run tomorrow with a couple who have won races around this area many times. It’s an honor to receive such an invitation, but at the same time, I am very nervous about it because they are at an advanced winning level. On the other hand, I am only at the beginner level.

でも、これがチャンスの時。きっと何か学べることがあるはずです。だから、楽しんじゃえばいいよね。きっと腕の痛みも和らいでる!But, wait a minute. This is actually a chance for me to learn something from them. And all I need to do is simply enjoy running. I know my arms will be much less painful by then.
