The Unofficial Start of Winter
Thank you for your supportive comments and emails after yesterday’s post went up. I want to reply to each and every one of you today, and I apologize that I ran out of time yesterday to do so.
Last night I dropped my three month old iPhone and the screen shattered to pieces. I feel like my best friend is broken. Isn’t it sad how dependent on these little devices we can become? I mean, I can’t even Instagram right now! Is this real life?!
Luckily I dropped my phone AFTER I went for my run so I was still able to take pictures :).
Yesterday marked the first time that it was totally dark by the time I got to the beach after work. To me this signifies the start of winter, even if it was still 80 degrees out.
Early night fall coupled with some light rain meant I had the whole beach to myself! The drizzle felt nice, but the humidity was terrible. My Garmin recorded the weather as 79*F with 94% humidity! Ugh.
I was supposed to run/walk three miles last night but I ended up only completing two. I saw some lightning zip across the sky and decided to just go home and watch the Miami Heat season opener from the safety of my living room.
Mile 1: 13:26
Mile 2: 13:54 (<– tired, hungry, humid)
2 miles / 13:41 pace / 79*F with 94% humidity
I don’t think I mentioned it earlier this week, but I did go for another ART session with my physical therapist. I have felt a lot better the last couple of days. I still make it a point to get up and walk around my office frequently, but I can sit for a prolonged period of time without feeling any pain in my lower back and glutes. I consider that a success!
I also haven’t had my foot go numb during a run in in a while now, although I have experienced some minor tingling here and there in my left foot while running.
I took a whole week off after Chicago and all of my run/walks since I started back have been short and easy. I think the real test will be seeing how I feel during and after I run/walk 8 miles this coming weekend. If everything goes well I may start eliminating the walking breaks next week… we’ll see!
Enjoy the rest of your day … and please cross your fingers that I’m able to get my phone repaired quickly today! 🙂
What is the longest you’ve gone without using your phone in recent years? Whenever Adam and I go on a cruise we both turn our phones off, The longest was two years ago when we went on a seven night cruise. The number of emails I had when I turned that thing on was overwhelming… luckily they were almost all promo emails so I could just delete them!
