Well, Friday did not start off well. After 2 weeks of staying the same, I was up .6 pounds. Ugh. Not happy at all about that. I didn't think I did all that bad last week, but I guess I did worse than I thought. :-(
Saturday, got myself up and went for a run. The weather this weekend in my neck of the woods was sooo much cooler than it's been that I had to take advantage of it. So, I went out and aimed for a 2, maybe 3 mile run. I felt good and my shoes, while old, were good too. I got around the 2.55 mile mark and decided unless I was about to keel over I would aim for 4 miles. I was so excited when I made that goal. It felt good to do it, even if I was slow as molasses. LOL!
After wards, we hit Lake Mean with a friend for some afternoon boating. Had a blast and if you want to see some photos of the afternoon, check out the photo blog. I put some up there.
Sunday...oh my poor body. I was SORE. Apparently, having not really run in two months does not prepare one for a 4 mile run. So, I hurt. I did use my little bike and did an hour on that to keep doing something. I also hoped it might loosen up some muscles that were ready to kill me for treating them so poorly the day before. It helped a little...but I think my body wasn't in a forgiving mood.
Monday, I got up and went for another run. It was warmer than Saturday, but nicer than it's been all summer, so I went. Aimed for nothing more than 2 miles. I figured my body was starting to forgive, I didn't want to make it angry again. ;-) Got a nice two miles in, even if I didn't set any land-speed records. Then, hubby and I headed to MD to get me a new pair of running shoes. It was an hour there and an hour home, for a 10 minute shoe visit. Ah well. The shoes FIT and that's what matters. I'm planning on taking them out for spin this week and possibly going for a 4.5 mile run this weekend. Gotta start getting in running form for the Baltimore Marathon Relay...it's coming up fast!
