You may already know, but if not, let me just preface my first thought today by saying I’m a bit weird.
Last night I was looking at my new running shoes while going through my stretching routine, and I realized these will probably be the shoes that I run my first marathon in.
That made me smile and it kind of endeared me to the shoes a bit (more). I’m glad they’ll get to train hard and then cross the finish line. That’s kind of WEIRD right? Who thinks about their running shoes like this? I must not have enough friends! : )
Since my 15-miler last Saturday I’ve been trying to get in the pool a bit each day. It feels really good to just slowly swim about for a few minutes.
My right hip was super tight on Sunday and Monday… swimming (plus stretching and rolling) made it feel a lot better. I’m going to try and get in the pool a few times a week. I know I’ve said this about a billion times before, but I really am going to stick to it this time!
My run last night was SWAMPY. It had just finished raining when I headed out and the humidity was through the roof (89%). The sky is always pretty after a storm though.
I had a bit of a frustrating afternoon which translated into an impromptu speed workout.
I know I mentioned yesterday that I don’t like speed days, but my legs were churning and it felt good. Until it felt bad : ) .
When I got home Adam and I started our summer ritual of watching the entire series of Arrested Development as fast as possible.
Cecil was bored and conked out as usual.
I must have a million pictures of him sleeping on the bed, but I can’t stop taking them!
He’s my little peanut!
Have you been getting in the pool at all this summer?
Do you celebrate your pet’s birthday? Cecil’s is coming up right after mine!
