Yesterday, I got the bright idea to run home from Jones’ soccer game. It’s just short of 4.5 miles from the field to our house. 4.5 REALLY hilly miles.
As soon as the game ended (a game in which they played SOOO well and even won!), I headed towards home. Despite major hills and too many stop lights (I don’t stop Garmin), I managed 10:00, 9:21, 9:26, 8:58 + a cool down. Woo hoo for negative splits! It just felt so good to be out running and not leaving a trail of sweat.
Today I should have gone running, but Beer Geek and I went out last night and I’m just plain tired. Jones is sick, so he’s been whiny all day, which I find extremely draining. I also did enough (girlie) pushups yesterday that it hurts to move my arms. Long story short, I decided there was nothing wrong with an extra rest day. ;o)
Tomorrow, I’m jumping back on the horse. I can’t waste the perfect running days!
