I really love food. Apparently, too much food can be a bad thing. I hear exercise can counteract that problem. I run so I can eat. Thus, I love to run.
Marathon Training Day….oh, I’m starting to lose count already!
Slow and steady. Well, not that slow for me. It was a “good” pace. I felt winded due to the heat, but I wasn’t out of breath from the pace. Does that make sense? Sure it does.
Earlier today I figured out how to sync my mp3 files on my computer to my phone. I am so glad I took the 10 minutes to figure it out. It was much nicer to have only one device on the run. Plus, the lady gave me my splits in my ear buds instead of out of the speaker of the phone, so I actually heard them. I wonder if there is a way to make the lady a man….hmmm.
PLUS, my GPS/runkeeper didn’t mess up and the mileage it tracked was actually the mileage I ran. Maybe running OUT of town instead of IN is the key? Who knows.
The run was a good one. I was feeling sluggish at first, but it turned out to be a very pleasant and fulfilling run. Just what I needed. I set out to run 3 miles (per the schedule), but ended up doing five. It worked for me. I guess it makes up missing my run yesterday just a tad.
Now, tomorrow is a scheduled rest day. I may try and run a fast mile or a mile of hill work. Nothing long. I have the 5k on Saturday morning. My legs have attempted to be sore, but nothing too crazy.
On my run on Tuesday, my left calf cramped up on me big time. I stopped for traffic at one point and the whole thing just seized up on me. I couldn’t even move it to try and massage it out. So, of course I ran through it and it felt better later. I think it was just one of those random things that happens.
Enough of my rambling….
