So my sickness knocked me out..I mean out. Saturday was my first run in almost 3 weeks. By the marathon schedule, I should have done 6 miles. I ran in a 5K and had one of my worst runs and worst times ever. My lungs were killing me! I ran with my friend Felicia and my St. Judes Marathon buddy Jen Wharton. We all made it!
Last night I had a great run, but it was short. My garmin died and it was late, so I did about 2.5 miles. I didn't realize how dependent I had become on my forerunner. I ran almost the whole time...my walk break made me miserable, so tonight after I get off work I'm going to shoot for running 3 miles straight, which is a feat I have only accomplished once at the Women Can Run 5K in May.
I need new shoes! I read online today that running in old shoes makes you more prone to injury! I'm going to save up some money after our trip to the emmy's this weekend!
Get outside and enjoy the weather!
