2.3 at work (11:36)

Comments: Leg still hurts, but I had to get out and run. The right leg was tight, and then my right shin started to hurt. I have to assume because I was (unintentionally) striking the ground differently. So I walked a bit, stretched the shin muscle and finished up.

Signed up: 1/2 Marathon Training

I finally signed up for the 1/2 marathon training for the Mini MiT today. The training started last Saturday, but I have been busy and my leg is hurting once again. Running the 8 on the 8th aggravated it. So stretching is on the daily schedule.

With me just signing up today I won’t have my running schedule for a couple more days and I doubt if I can get any quality runs in until after Christmas, that should give my leg time to heal up.

As a born procrastinator and 7 kids to buy for, the last few days will be pure stress! lol

Should I not get a chance to post between now and Christmas I wish everyone:

A Merry Christmas* and a Happy New Year!

Frohe Weinachten & einen Guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr!

* (Happy Holidays to those who celebrate something else)

For my boss

With Christmas around the corner I thought I’d get him a t-shirt after the Runner’s Lounge suggested it as a christmas present in one of their blogs (not this particular shirt, but running shirts in general, among other stuff). I checked with his wife about his shirt size and out the order went. I am looking forward to giving it to him. 🙂
