4 miles today....

I was suppose to do 7 miles yesterday.

My excuses why I only did 6.....

1. I wanted to try out a new Y. It ended up being about 7 miles farther than I thought it was.
2. Yesterday just happened to be the day the Y and the church next door were hosting a Women's Expo. Really?! Today? The parking was horrible....I drove around and around for about 10 minutes before I finally followed a guy to his car and I was the first one there so I GOT HIS SPOT!
3. I am now about 20 minutes behind schedule.
4. The first 3 miles were really slow.....I was getting awful shin splints!! Don't know why?!
5. Bathroom break.....
6. Back on it....shin splints are gone....I am ready but, I realize the time is ticking and I need to get home, shower, and get to work by 1PM.
7. I can only do 6.....in order to accomplish all the stuff in #6. ;-)

8. Bummed b/c I was finally "in the zone" but I will add another mile on to today's run to make up for it.


Today was scheduled for an EZ 3....now it will be an EZ 4 after work.

Hopefully, no shin splints and I will hit "the zone" today too. ;-)

I was hoping to get in 5, but ran around shopping instead. So..nothing :( and I hurt everywhere, hopefully not getting sick

May need new shoes if you are getting shin splints! Great job getting out there!!!

Nothing else compares to this....

That feeling right after you put away ALL the Christmas decorations.....you've dusted, vacuumed, rearranged the furniture in a brand ...
