Running on Saturday and extra stuff

Monday, January 14, 2013

This past Saturday I ran 7.14 of 7.71 miles. I did better by 6 minutes than Tuesday on the same route. Not bad for not running most of December! But it was probably the brightest thing to do twice in a week. When I got done there was a pain in the outside edge of my foot almost directly below my ankle bone. It hurt to walk especially if I lost my balance and put to much pressure on that side. Wrapping it made it worse so I used Capzasin gel on it. It has gotten better. Today I can walk easier. I don't have to walk on my tiptoes anymore.

Sundays are my day off so that worked well but today I should have done something and I didn't. I lounged around all day with my DH ( an extra day with him is an unexpected treat).

I was at mile 4 1/2 and this guy goes blowing past me, I'm slow so anything faster than 4 mph is fast, scared me so bad I screamed!! LOL.. I had my earbuds in and didn't hear him coming. I normal don't see anyone running on my routes its a once in a blue moon kind of thing since I live in the middle of nowhere.

Also I had to stop and take pictures of me running on January 12 in 55 degree weather. I will have to download it from my phone later and add it to this post.

I was reading articles today from Runner's World magazine and they said that females running more than 20 miles a week messes with their hormones. So maybe I need to only train for my 1/2 only once a year instead of twice because I am bored and need a goal to keep focused on. Maybe the scale will move. I also need to do measurements again, it has been awhile and I know that non scale victory's count and I should not depend on the scale!!!!
