I was naughty this week and blew off my stretching and strength sessions. I don’t really have any good excuses other than I just didn’t feel like doing them. I did keep up with my slant board exercises twice/day and I attribute that to the game of Solitaire that I’ve been playing on my iPhone. Whatever works, right?
I also ended up replacing my mid-week run with a snow removal session (bad!) But! I did redeem myself with a fairly decent 4 mile run today. Josh dumped me off on a back road in Stanton and I ran to my parent’s house. I was dressed for the 16 degree weather, but I certainly wasn’t prepared for the wind. Holy cow, it was cold! My lungs were stinging and my nostrils kept sticking together. Every time I exhaled, the wind would push it back in my face and my sunglasses would fog up. The only thing that kept me going was that at the 2-mile mark, I was going to change direction and the wind would be at my back instead of hitting me in the face. Once I hit the turn, everything was all good and I sailed through the rest of my run.
My legs have been doing okay with the 3-day a week plan. I’ve had a flare up here & there, but nothing that ice, Ibuprofen and arnica gel can’t keep under control. We’ll see what happens when my mileage starts to pick up.
Oh, I turned 40 on Thursday. Geez, I’m old. Spencer turned 16. Geez, he’s old. Fun fact: Spencer and I both take Glucosamine for our joints. I think that makes me a crazy cat lady?
