W4R1 and it Didn't Kill Me!

I was really a teeny bit apprehensive about the 5 minute runs, but it turns out, they weren't that bad! I wish I had gotten out a little earlier in the day, though. I went out at noon and the temp was over 80. So much for Spring.

There was rhubarb in my box from the Green Grocer. So I made a Rhubarb Raspberry Crostata. It's in the oven and smells yummy!

3 Down

Finished week three! The three minute runs were ok! I think I may have a little bit of shin splints in my left shin. Ice tonight.

Back on the horse…

Okay, yesterday I ran week-2-run-3 over again. I felt good. Not strained. No soreness to speak of. I had anticipated a bit, since I had taken 10 days off with the everlasting migraine. And I ran in the new shoes! Tomorrow I will start week 3.

The weekend was great! Drove to Richmond for a day with Chris. He fit me for running shoes, and gave them to me for Mother's Day. We then saw the Picasso Exhibit at the VMFA, had dinner at Legends Brewery and spent the night at the Linden Row Inn and had a great brunch at Belly Timber Tavern on Sunday.

Then we drove back to DC via 301, stopped in at my parents, visited for a while, got back in the car and went to his parents for a while, then home. Looong day.

No wonder I migrained on Monday… it's Tuesday, and it's still lingering… no running yet.
Don't think I should attempt anything strenuous on percocet.

Maybe tomorrow? I want to try my new shoes!!!

That Pesky Old IT Band

Is doing it's thing again. At least this time I recognize it's pain and have hit the foam roller!

Yesterday, I ordered a cute new running skirt from Zappos. It came today before noon.
It's a SkirtSports Marathon Girl Ultra. And it is so comfortable to run in, Not too short, no bunching, no riding up.
And I just finished W2R1!


Finished Week 1! The third run was a little harder for me, but I suspect it may have had more to do with the lack of sleep and the over consumption of various rum drinks the night before! I was at a lovely little beach house on the Delaware Bay with many good friends! But I did run! Woot!

I have also cast on for Square 6. The Blanket is coming along nicely.
