Maybe I should call it “Miscellaneous Monday”. The only thing the following three things have in common is running. So, “Three Things Monday” it is. ;o)
- My legs hurt all day Sunday. My quads were trashed from the hills and my calves hurt from the combination of high heels on Friday and the Vibram Five Fingers on Saturday. I wasn’t “walk backwards down the stairs” stiff, just generally sore and achy. It was only three miles! Sheesh! Someone asked if I thought it was just a fast race or if it was the Vibram Five Fingers. I think it was the race. In fact, I think I could have run it faster in shoes. Towards the end, I was really struggling to maintain my form. I think I spent a lot of extra energy on making sure I kept my head up and didn’t land with my heels. I’m hopeful that this will change in the future as I develop better form and get stronger.
- I have almost 21 miles left to run this month and only four days left. Those four days are pretty much wall to wall with things to do. As in, running is likely going to have to happen at 5:00 am or midnight. Knowing how I feel about mornings, I have a feeling there may be a couple of midnight runs in my future. Thank goodness for my treadmill. I will NOT miss my 100 mile goal.
- Winners of my 1000 mile giveaway… Pam at Thirty Schmirty won the socks, Miss Zippy won the nuun, and Bobbi at Zero to 26.2 won the glass. Email me at mom2shoo at gmail.com and I’ll get those out to you sometime in the next year. ;o) Seriously though, I have managed to mail about half of the stuff from my virtual race. I’m hoping to mail the rest this week.
