Yet Another Run

March 9th, 2010

Just got back from a quick 5 mile recovery run (44:08 or 8:49/mile for anyone keeping score), I feel good mentally and it was a nice run. It felt very short, which I suppose is a side effect of doing these crazy long runs. The only downside is that my legs feel kind of out of it and my left knee felt achy. I am a little bit concerned about that and I absolutely don’t want to get sidelined with an injury, so I’m going to make an effort to really take it easy this week. So, I’ll be resting when I feel like resting, running slower than I can run and maybe even forcing myself to do some cross training. I don’t have a gym membership right now, so I don’t have an elliptical machine or exercise bike to use, but I’ll figure something out.

So, I’m not sure if I’m going to race that 5k on Saturday or not, but I will be running 20 miles on Sunday. So BRING IT ON.

Also, check out my new running swag!:

A copy of Matt Fitzgerald’s new book Racing Weight: How to Get Lean for Peak Performance and a new pair of Tifosi Dea T – 1710 sunglasses. Wicked! I also got a 26.2 magnet for my car,  but I’ll have to photograph that later.  I haven’t read the book yet, but I will post a review after I do. I did, however, test out the sunglasses today on my run.They are awesome, I highly recommend them!  A really nice change from going blind from all the snow/sun reflections and they are super comfortable to run in. I don’t have any pictures of me wearing them,  so you’re spared from seeing my face. Shucks.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for today.

    OMGosh! I finally had a chance to read through some of your posts, they make me laugh! Your “A few of my favorite things…” was cute…I can especially relate to the Garmin. I love mine!! I wonder if running, OCD, and Garmin all go together. I’m thinking so, but someone should certainly do a study…or at least a post!!! ;)

    Okay, I’m going to see if I can leave this comment and not duplicate it. Crossing my fingers! BTW, thanks for visiting Running Buddies. When I get my blogroll up, you’ll be on it. :)
