When I started my run this morning it felt REALLY weird. I felt naked but don’t worry, I wasn’t.
My body has gotten really used to running with the BOB again and so my solo run felt really strange and approximately 4,000 times easier. My legs also felt way better during and after the run. I love my Bob with all of my heart but I don’t know how much running I will be doing with it (maybe just one or two easy runs a week) to prevent getting hurt again. Now I just have to avoid my tendency to be lazy all morning long and leave early enough to get home in time for Billy to go to school.
Brooke was upset with me that I didn’t bring her on the run but obviously she forgave me quickly.
I did my Runner’s Core DVD and then ate breakfast with Brooke before going to meet a friend for a walk and some swing time. I have talked a little bit about this friend before on the blog but she truly is incredible. The sweetest woman ever and an incredible runner (13 marathons and 17 half marathons in the last 5 years)! We could (and do) talk for hours and hours and hours.
We took a long walk to Downtown San Jose and I found approximately 40 restaurants in San Pedro Square that I want Billy to take me to.
And then I came home and had the best salad I have had in a long time (I think I say that too much because really I just love all salads and food for that matter) with a slice of bread because I have no idea how to eat a meal without some form of bread.
and then I had more bread. PS I have found the best grocery store bread in the world. We got it at Costco and it is heavenly.
I also got a chance to talk to my good friend Pam. She ran Boston this year and I can’t even begin to describe how happy I am that she and her husband are okay.
(PS I was pregnant with Brooke in this picture but had no idea. I was just a few weeks along and already craving candy in hello kitty tins and gelato… actually I always crave that, I cannot blame it on Brooke. PPS I ate all of that candy 2 hours before running the RNR Las Vegas 1/2 marathon, not one of my best life decisions.)
Did your run today feel harder or easier than usual?
What did you have for lunch today?
What do you usually have with you when you run? Does it bother you to carry stuff? Do you take your phone?
-I can’t remember the last time I ran without my phone and I don’t even notice that I am usually carrying (unless running with the BOB, then it is in the cup holder) my phone, keys and pepper spray.
