Is it normal that I already have my running clothes and shoes out and ready to go for my 3.1 mile run tomorrow? I might be just a tad bit excited. I think I will go to bed even earlier than my normal 9:30 pm bed time just so that morning can come faster.
Let’s just hope that my IT Band allows me to have a big cheesy grin on my face for the whole run.
This morning’s workout was at a new-to-me gym. I just started teaching at another gym this morning (still at the other one too) and it was a blast.
After spin I came home and did 8 minute abs and did a stretching dvd that my coach sent me that lasted 36 minutes. I don’t think I have ever stretched for that long in my entire life. I think he thinks that if I actually start stretching/strength training/being a smarter runner that I might stop getting injured;)
Speaking of injuries, I read THIS awesome article in Running Times today and loved it. It talks all about the health continuum, knowing your individual limitations and I especially loved the part about getting proactive with PREhab.
Oh yeah, and the part about Dealing with Devastation (injuries ARE devastating to runners) is a must read:
It’s been a lay on our backs and read a lot of books kind of a day.
And now I am currently debating between making chocolate chip pancakes or chocolate chip waffles for lunch. It’s Friday and that means you should celebrate by adding chocolate chips to everything you eat.
What will YOUR run be this weekend? (It has been 5 weeks since I could answer this question so of course I am going to ask it:)
Do you: wear your running clothes to bed, have them laying out waiting for you in the morning or get them out right before you leave in the morning for a run?
Pancakes or waffles? Be honest.
