Well, got up early this am (not as early as normal with the time change). I really felt like running, and I dressed for it. I harnessed up both dogs and out we went. Unfortunately, I was VERY stupid about my new shoes/inserts yesterday. Even though they are very comfy and help with my shin splints, they cause my foot to strike differently and thus some extra stress on my calf muscles. This translates to not being able to run more than a few blocks. So we walked. We went up and down every single street in Whiting.
It started to rain but we kept walking. The temperature started to drop, we kept walking. Rain picked up, we kept walking. We walked for an hour until my hands just got too cold to keep going. So we headed home. I covered about 3.8 miles.
So, now we are home and I have a ton of house work to do. Both girls are passes out (Gypsy on the couch, Tazzy in the middle of the floor). My leg is still hurting, but not terribly. Just "ouchie", nothing that is going to stop me at all.
I really want to get back outside, but it has turned into one of those "soaking" rains. Nothing I want to be outside in. Yuck! So I guess I'm going to just break down and do house work.
