Ahhhhh…..running. Yes. It’s been a while since I’ve had a “running” post on here. Truth is, nothing really exciting has been going on with my training. I’ve had to really take things slow with my calf. I’ve done some 3 mile a day runs. About two 4 miles run so far. And I’m scheduled to run 5 miles tonight after work since I didn’t get it in this weekend. I’ve had my neighbor work on my calf a few more times since I originally saw him and things seem to be getting back on track. I’ve been stretching before and after I run and even on the days in between. I ran a 2 mile fun race with my husband in July. It was hot and sticky out, as it was an evening run. But we had fun! First time I drank a beer before actually running.
I have a 5k race in mid September that looks fun. We get a cupcake when we finish and 3 free beer tickets. Sounds good to me! Oooohhh we also get a tech shirt and a pint glass! It only cost $20 too! There was also a 5 miler race I was considering doing in September, but we’ll see! My half marathon is October 6. I’m terrified! I was not expecting to have calf problems for as long as I had it, and it’s really put me behind in my training. I’m running in the Rock n Roll Cleveland race and they finally announced who the headliner was for the after race concert. It’s freaking Gavin Degraw. Seriously? Like that’s really the only person they could find to perform?? Lame.
Other than that not too much has been going on! I’m still loving my Brooks Ghost 6 running shoes. They fit my feet perfectly. I’m still learning how to use my Garmin watch. It’s hard to break apart from using my phone app! All my running history is in that app. Oh well!
