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 :)
