Merci, Grazie, Muchas Gracias, Thank You

running friends for listening and understanding me.  It's nice to know that other runners experience the same thing. 

I hope you all took a little CRAZY with you today on your runs..

I woke up early this morning and really took my time getting ready for my run.   I kept thinking Fun.

Got a cup of coffee, read a little from the book I am reading for book club.   "Water for Elephants"  Pretty decent book so far. 

The weather was pretty chilly, 28 degrees.  Thank goodness wind was only 7mph.  I really wanted to run outside and get some good Vitamin D, that helps with depression right???

It also took me an hour and a half to get dressed in between starting laundry, dishes etc.  Sounds like I was stalling.. Yea I was...  No idea why.. I guess I wanted to run on my terms.

I started out by taking the dogs for a 1 mile warm-up walk.  They get so excited.

Dropped the dogs off at the house and started running.  Heel was a little sore, not sure if it was just in my head.  I was favoring it a little, but once I got going I was good.  Wasn't really sure how far I was going either.  Just run that is what I told myself.  Just Run!

I finished my run at 5 miles.  So glad I got out there.  I iced the heel and did some stretching before I headed back to the laundry. 

I am still a little anxious about my training but I am going to keep every run simple and not worry so much.   Rest tomorrow.... 

I Hope you all are having a Fabulous weekend...

If your going to run, Run Half Crazy!

Haven't heard of that book, but I need one to read. Yes, worry less, this is hard!! Rest that heel, ice and take one day at a time.

Daisy and Bella are adorable.

You'll get your mojo back eventually. This is normal. We all get in ruts from time to time.

Hoping things turn around! :)
