Tomorrow's run is in miles?

Today was one of the final days of running in minutes instead of miles. I've mapped a 4 mile run and I'm ready to go. The last few runs have been tough. I believe my lack of stretching has something to do with it. I'm looking forward to the run and making it, hills and all.

I'm back!

Today is the first day I have run since last Saturday. I woke up last Sunday with a sore throat that could make Godzilla cry. Sore throat and everything between my shoulders and chin swollen. So I took the week off. I decided each day if I would take the day off. Today I was sore throat free and new it was time to get back at it. 90 minute run and it felt great. Gorgeous morning. Not too hot and major satisfaction for getting in the 90 minute (mostly run).

I know it's been a while...

I haven't posted in awhile and I haven't been tracking food or running at Myfitnesspal.com either. However, I'm still running and eating well (for the most part). You have visited Jana's Dessert Kitchen? Yesterday was my best run to date. I felt good and ran well, even after spending a lazy day at the pool and only getting 5 or 6 hours of sleep!

Looking forward to more good running days like yesterday. 50 minutes, NON STOP! WOOOHOOO! They only get longer from here. I've discovered ice massage (dixie cups rock). They work wonders on knees, shins and anything else with pain. I haven't brought myself to putting them on my hips yet, but that could be next. I'm trying to take as little pain medicine as possible since it makes me itch. But I believe ibuprofen contributed to my great run yesterday.

Until next time!
