Don't stop now! Looking forward to the weekend assignment and some yummy dessert recipes and to see people enjoying a healthy snack they have made in their kitchen!
Woke up and felt like running. Dare I run 3 days in a row with an injury?
Yep!! My legs wanted to run. I felt nothing last night, nothing this morning and
it was FREEZING FROST on the ground and I wanted it! I saw that sun out and I wanted to be in it. Sure I knew I didn't wake up early and this was last minute. I was gearing up my morning getting my kids dressed for double birthday party fun and yet another day away from the homestead. So I quickly threw the hair back got into some cold gear...my runnerboy excited me helped me gather stuff and out the door I went. Nothing I'd go for just 2 miles again today.
My first mile I opened up quickly. It was so cold and it felt so Nice! 1/4 mile in the sun it shined so brightly upon my exhaled breath and It cleansed me. My soul was so lifted. My heart was so Happy. I had wings my first mile. An incredibly comfy 8:15 pace and then I picked it up was hitting sub 7:40 for a while. Hit a local light and then ache started to settle. I picked back up and ran through it and then at the 1 mile marker out, I turned around. Looked at my Garmin where My first mile reflected an 8:10 pace. The run back because I wanted to slow it down and just enjoy the run...I was back around the 9:30 pace and in pain! gah! Toward the end I was running a stiff knee'd 10:15
I'm ok though. Just as soon I was done, my recovery was simple. I had no other wiggles or niggles in the knee the whole rest of the day.....Oh wait...I was totally jumping around in a bounce house with my kids and was beating up runnerboy with some huge inflatable boxing gloves and my knee said "owie" a couple of times, lol.
Tmrw is a 5k race. It won't matter to me my time.....I win....cause I'm running!
B:Coffee- and someone SHOOT me now cause I forgot breakfast again- I like NEVER do this..why am I doing this 2 days in a row? my brain is FRIED! I'm telling you people I've had 4-5hrs of sleep in the last couple of days again...my hormones are whacky and my insomnia is in full swing right now! Not going to bed till 3am sucks! -35
