I went out to lunch with a co-worker and had pasta for lunch, figuring a nice carb dish would be beneficial for a run later in the day. Let’s not even mention how delicious the pasta was!
After feeling rather exhausted all day, I fit a solid four mile run in around 6pm. Chris and Dan joined, riding their beach cruisers while I ran. To be honest, I wasn’t feeling the run but I knew I could finish strong enough and get some good rest later so I stuck it out. Plus, I just registered for a 10K this coming Sunday (more on that in the coming days) so I don’t want to slack off too much this week and end up hurting myself Sunday morning.
One of my feet has been needing some care, the foot that I most recently had surgery on. I’ve been doing exercises and stretches with it, and icing it to be sure I’m nurturing it enough to keep it in tip-top shape. Looking forward to another good run tomorrow…I think we’re looking at somewhere between 4 and 6 miles for tomorrow. The plan: throw some laundry in the washer mid-afternoon and head out for a run while the laundry gets clean! Now, there’s some good multi-tasking.
Also, I have been feeling really tired lately so getting on a better sleeping schedule and back into a routine is completely necessary. I think this will help me out with getting in some better runs too, since my body will always have an adequate amount of time to rest and recover each night.
Do you have any races coming up? Do share!
