A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Short and sweet

Friday, May 11, 2012

Both this post and my run today are short and sweet. 


It was a perfectly lovely day NOT to go to school! We had a built-in snow day planned for today, and since our snow day total this year was zero, a three-day weekend ensued! 


This morning I woke up around 8, putzed around until 9, and finally headed out to get a few miles in. The run was short. I didn't time it. I just tried to see how my body felt. Here's the general overview:


Lungs: Felt okay, but winded, even after teaching three Jazzercise classes this week. Maybe I was running faster than normal. Maybe it's because I took six days off after Indy. Either way, it felt nice to get them pumping again! 


Legs: Felt decent! After I stretched, I noticed my quads talking to me (they're typically the part of my legs that talk the loudest). Now though, many hours later, feeling good! 


Left toenails: Good! 


Right toenails: Uncomfortable. Stupid tender bruised toenails. Back to flip flops for the weekend -- and what a beautiful weekend it's shaping up to be!

  1. I think she's back! The long one out of the way & now to just enjoy running & some short races :)

    Starting to get nervous/excited about my Geist race. Looks like it's gonna be a little hotter than I'd like. I have a list a mile long so I don't forget anything important. I think I'm going to try a little carb-loading but I don't think I'll be able to tell much about it since I haven't done a 1/2 since 2010. I'm also going to use Galloway's run/walk. With the heat & the hills I think the run/walk is the best method.

    You still need to post a close-up of that Indy medal!

  2. Sherry! Your race is just days away! I'm getting so excited for you and your soon-to-be accomplishment!

    It looks like a hot one again this weekend, but run/walk and water will save you. :) Indy medal picture coming soon!
