Comments: After a good nights sleep I actually felt the need to go out running today! Too funny how the body goes from “I really don’t want to go running today” to “You better get out there and give me my run!” So this morning I scrambled to get all my running gear packed to take with me to work.
My right knee has been bothering me when going up and down the stairs, but it was not an issue during running, that was a relief. The first two miles however felt like I was wearing cement blocks instead of shoes. I was able to ‘shake them off’ after two miles and my body got into the familiar rhythm.
With my final exam in one of my classes tonight I didn’t want to be too tired and planned on running only 4 when I left for the run. During the run I started feeling good and thought I’d get that additional mile in there (after all I did have 6 on my schedule), but it seems like I came up a bit short. (My Garmin, which has been acting ‘goofy’ lately, read 4.23 miles and the runninghead.com has it mapped at 4.76, so I took the medium.)
The weather is suppose to break this weekend! I am so excited about that, specially with 6 and 7 milers during the week coming up.
