Today was a great day (and it's not over :)

I have not been dwelling on California and their f*cked up state today. It's crossed my mind a couple of times but only as a profanity :) So that is very good.

I decided to run this morning. I have a 10k in 4 weeks and wasn't even sure I could cover that distance. My running has been so pathetic lately!!! So I headed out doing a 4/1 run/walk combo. It was fun. The turn around is right across the beach so I stopped and enjoyed the view for a few minutes. I was running really good too. I did slow down at the end and I walked more than I wanted to towards the end but I did it and now I have a base from which to work.

As soon as I got home I got into a tub of cold water (I didn't have much ice around) and sat there for a few minutes then took a lukewarm shower. That really helped - wow!!! Around here the physiology folks tell you to jump into the ocean after a run; same theory, cold water really helps the muscles.

Then it was off the the running store to get new shoes. My feet have been hurting after runs for a couple of days and today I was having shin pain during my run. That is my signal that my shoes need replacing. So I got the new Asics 1120 in baby blue, very pretty.

The rest of the day was grocery shopping and house cleaning. Now it's 3 p.m. and I've done everything I wanted to. So I'm going to lay on the couch and read while I finish up the laundry.

definitely a great day :)

Getting new running shoes will make any day better. Especially when they're pretty.

The aftermath

The move is over, though the work will continue for quite some time. It was an interesting week or so. Let me recap: On Thursday, Aug 2...
