You know those times when you’re running and everything just clicks? Yeah, it was that kind of run. It’s kind of odd because I was nervous my endurance wasn’t quite there yet. I guess I need to underestimate myself more often.
I ran along the Bay Trail for a couple miles and then around the Google campus.
It was warm out & the sidewalks around Google are covered in shade. Plus I know where all of the water fountains are. Nerd alert!
I started thinking about training on my bike in
sugardaddie Woodside. (Yeah well file that under stuff I can’t make up.) And how awesome it feels to be able to run without constantly thinking about how my injured arch is feeling every 2.3 seconds.
Anyway, I did 8 pain free, happy miles and I’m feeling much more confident about running the SLO half marathon next month. Whew.
Then I got home and realized I chafed on the side of my arm and had a blonde moment when I couldn’t remember if I put on deodorant. Oh well I guess that’s what the Google employees get for putting Google Reader on the chopping block. Muhahaha
I knew if I sat down on the couch, I’d never get back up, so I took a shower, cleaned the entire house and even made the bed & an edible dinner. Then went to bed at a normal person hour. Dang, this time change is actually making me seem like I’m 32 and not 80.
And just because this made my day!
How do you keep up with your favorite blogs?
How do you build confidence when training for a race?
Tell me something you recently saw that you can’t make up.
