Today I had one of my best runs ever. I met my running buddy this morning and we ran the stadium, about 3 miles total at the stadium. When we first started it felt like I weighted 800 lbs trying to climb up and down the stairs, but once warmed up it got a lot better. I also had to stop and tie my shoes about 6 times. I am trying to break in my new shoes but they started off to lose, then too tight and cutting off circulation, but finally I got the right tension. We even finished the workout with a little bit of speed work (one sprint) hahahah. Then I was left to run on my own...dum dum dum. I do not like to run by myself now that I have been blessed with a great partner. I was determined to go run this morning alone or not, so I put in the headphones and off I went.
It was a nice cold morning, good tunes, and great run. I ended up running an additional 4 miles at about a 10 minute pace. I never run that fast! I would stop when I needed to walk but there were very few walk breaks and my legs were feeling pretty good. I was really happy to have a good run. My shins are really the only part that are still hurting.
For the rest of the day I have worked like a dog. Every job that I have today has been incredibly busy. It makes the day go by quicker but also makes me lose my mind a little bit at a time.
I am still trying out the KT Tape that I talked about the other day. During the race on Friday the tape worked pretty well on my knee (hopefully not psychosomatic) so I am giving it a try on the shins now. It looks pretty stupid to have tape up and down my leg but if it will make it feel better I will look stupid...hell, I wear tight tight pants to run out around town, what is a little bit of tape on the leg? I am also pretty lucky to work with a bunch of Physical Therapist. I have so many questions that I have started trading Real Estate advice for Physical Therapy exercises. Don't think I cant bargain!
I also got to do Zumba tonight. I am really missing this class so I was happy to get to attend. I go do Zumba on my lunch break so I don't get to stay the entire time but I get most of the class in. And no more workouts tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As I hope you can tell by this post I have had a pretty
I am ready to pile my butt into bed. Hopefully tonight I can get my computer charging so I can post tomorrow. Otherwise I will have to go to my office tomorrow night after Biggest Loser and post about the episode. That would never happen but it sounds good right?!?!?!
