Today’s Workout: 1 mile run, PT exercises
1. If you didn’t notice from looking at “today’s workout”… I RAN TODAY! Finally after almost 3 weeks off after the Lake Placid Half I am back in the game. It was a short 1 mile run, as per doctors orders, and I probably spent more time foam rolling before and after then I actually did on the treadmill, but I did it. I can’t tell you how much I missed running and how great it feels to be able to do what I love again! No pain today when running, but then again I only did one mile. I’m going to take it easy now.. middle of July starts training for my relay in October. Any good training plans anyone recommends?
2. Since I started running again today I think this is a good time to share with you the first running picture ever taken of me. When I was at my parents last weekend I was flipping through some old photo albums and came across this in one of the scrapbooks. I had totally forgotten all about this! The picture was taken when I was 7 years old and it was a race sponsored by the local newspaper. Take a look at my form and some serious heel strike going on. I think I have the competitive look about me though. Plus this photo helped me realize I was pretty tall as a kid!
3. I know this last thing is totally unrelated to my first two, but then again this is the part where I talk about three random things about my day so I’m just going for it. There is something that really bugs me when I ride the subway. When there are empty seats, especially during rush hour, it bothers me when someone stands right near it but never sits. I understand if you are only going two stops or so, that I get. But when people ride stop after stop and never sit, for some reason it gets to me.
And I don’t know why I even care at all or whats so wrong about not sitting. I guess I have to consider that not everyone has jobs where they are on their feet all day like me. But still, wouldn’t your rather be sitting than standing so tightly together with people that you are basically in a sardine can?! Okay, enough about my subway peeves. Can’t you tell I just love commuting to work everyday
Here’s a great photo I found that they talks about some of my other peeves, especially the nail one. Can you say gross?!
