Weekly Recap

I've been running 2.5 miles every morning before work and it feels pretty good. The distances are short but I finally look forward to running again. I hope to run 18 miles tomorrow and 7 on Sunday. Sunday miles might be hard to get in because I'll be busy but I'll try.

12 Miles!

Wow...stating that I'm going to run the next day actually works. I ran 12 miles today at the canal on a 3 mile loop in 1:46. My music battery died so it was just me and my thoughts...pretty relaxing. It was nice and sunny out, too.

I now have one complaint about the injinji socks. After being outside for only a couple minutes, my toes were painfully cold. I couldn't even feel them and was about to stop. They need to put some kind of warning label on their product so no one sues them. joke.

Anyway, I felt pretty good running but it sucked afterwards because I was so dang hungry. I had only eaten a little egg white before running and 4 hours had passed so it was lunch time but still; my stomach hurt so bad from hunger that it made me not wanna run. Why does that happen? I didn't eat during the run since it was only 12 miles but perhaps I should have. (Maybe I just need to shut up. There's people starving all over and this is the one time I feel hunger)

Speaking of eating, tomorrow night I'm getting Greek for dinner so now I have to be careful about how much I run so I don't go all crazy like the last
times...maybe just a few miles in the morning will do.

2 Mo Miles!

Ran 2 miles this morning out in the cold. It's a bad thing when my coworkers who typically don't run are coming up to me and saying that they've been running 3 miles or 5 miles and they're training for marathons and what not. Dangit. I'm now jealous because my lazy butt doesn't even do those 3 miles. I'm off work tomorrow so I'm committing via my blog that I will run 10 miles!

February Miles!

Alright y'all! I procrastinated running for a couple of weeks but my b-n-law finally convinced me to go running with him this morning around the hood for a total of 2.3 miles. Nice. It felt good to get out there. I ran in my new injinji socks and they felt fine.

For the past four weeks I've been doing some P90X workouts with people at work that last 1-1.5 hours. So, at least I'm getting some sort of exercise in, I suppose. They're pretty intense workouts that I enjoy but it makes it hard to fit in cardio work...
