We had a really great evening on Saturday night with a small group of friends. It was our annual holiday beer tasting, which we have to keep small because our living room is just so small LOL. We tasted 21 different beers, ate some good chili and cornbread, and finished up with pecan bars and an amazing chocolate cake (made with Guinness!).
And I didn’t take a single picture. Not one. Gah.
I also did not run all weekend. And I’m o.k. with that.
My run on Friday (in my new Newtons) did not go well. My calf tightened up at 1.4 miles, so I ended up walking about a mile home. Newtons are not good walking shoes. Just sayin’. I’ll be taking those back, as I wasn’t thrilled with them for running and, while I don’t walk a lot during my usual runs, I need the option to walk.
Saturday, I woke up with a really unhappy calf. I was seriously bummed, but honestly too busy getting ready for our party to worry overly much. Also, I’d just seen a post that Angie B did about squatting for calf health, so several times on Saturday, I sat in a squat for a minute or so. Mind you, my heels are nowhere near the floor when I squat LOL.
Guess what?!? By the end of the day, my calf was no longer tight and the knot I was working on with The Stick, was pretty much gone. Hmmm…
I planned to run yesterday, but I spent most of the early part of the day working and then the latter part of the day helping the boys with school projects, so I just never got around to it.
Fingers crossed that today I have a good run on the treadmill and that I can then try out my new Saucony Virratas and my Brooks Pure Flow 2. Hoping one of those will be the magic shoe that allows me to get through a 65 mile week in mid-march!
