I am blown away by all of your amazing comments yesterday. Thank you.
I feel like it has been a bit since we last caught up so I thought I would fill you in on some of the recent highlights.
1. I spent some time washing zucchini, peppers, tomatoes (I was tempted to eat half of them) and cucumbers at a welfare farm in the area.
And now I want a garden even more than I did before. Maybe my sister will rent out a portion of hers to me. I’ll ask her.
2. Wednesday morning’s run hurt. My coach wrote it as a ‘moderate’ workout but it felt like an ‘extra hard, it might make me want to pass out’ workout. I probably wasn’t super recovered from Monday’s speed workout yet and it was hot and some days just don’t feel great at all—> but, you gotta do ‘em anyways if you want the final results that you want.
.5 @ 8:50 pace, 5 @ 7:13, 3 @ 6:22, .5 @ 8:40
9 miles total and about a 2 minute break during those last 3 fast ones for a stop light. I thanked the heavens that I had to wait to cross. I needed a break.
3. I read over How To Adjust Your Workouts For An Off-Day and I felt better about the whole thing.
4- What you see may seem like an ordinary calf but…
In reality it is a calf with approximately 400 knots and scar tissue that needs to disappear. Dr. Bennett saved the day again and worked on it (including ASTYM ((scraping) which made me sweat bullets because my calves were so messed up).
Much much much better now.
5- On the way back I grabbed a donut for Brookers because she has been rocking potty training.
And then I spoke too soon;)
6- We hydrated well on the rain.
7- I saw a friend wearing this hat and I had to make it my own because I didn’t want to covet her forever.
9- We ate large amounts of peaches.
10- A Wednesday night walk (run for Brookie) in the canyon.
What’s been going on in your world since we last caught up?
Any areas that are super sore for you because of running?
-Calves. calves. calves.
Who has a garden (don’t worry.. I won’t come steal from you)? What things do you grow in your garden?
What is your workout today?!
-4 miles easy. Ready for an easy run.
