1 - I ran two miles today. Tomorrow would have marked two weeks since my last run. I decided to try two miles today and move up to three miles tomorrow if everything felt good. And everything felt good. While I've learned to appreciate the bike a little more in the past two weeks, there is nothing like a run. I am looking forward to three miles tomorrow, and then I will evaluate how far to run on Saturday.
2 - Your comments, suggestions and encouragement were AMAZING and exactly what I needed to get my shin pain gone, gone, gone. Lots of shin/calf strengthening and some rockin' new compression leg sleeves have really helped things get back to normal. My goal for the next 85 days is to train smart and stay healthy.
3 - I went without Internet for almost a week AGAIN. They finally came and fixed it this morning. If I haven't stopped by your blog lately, that is why. I have missed so much and can't wait to read about all the running done over the holiday weekend!
RUN: The Princess has been telling everyone she is a runner lately. She got some new gymnastics clothes that she specifically chose because they look like things I wear running. The other day, she put on her "running clothes" and had me say "ready, set, go runner" over and over again as she ran up and down the sidewalk.
