Since it's a new month, I thought I would start a new running thread.

I ran a 2 mile recovery run after my 10 miles on Sunday. This is my taper week before my HM and my tendonitis has really flared up along with a blister I'm trying to heal before Saturday. No more running before the HM. Resting and icing my feet are more important at this point.

Good luck, bike chick! Tendonitis and blisters, yuck, but at least they're enforcing a taper week...

I had my first run of the season in a flurry this morning-- 3 miles. Perfect.

Can't wait to hear about the HM. Tapers always come at JUST the right time!

I ran 6 on the treadmill last night. Boring, but we had crazy weather in the ATL last night, so it was too scary to run outside!

I started the month with a run. We are awaiting the storm that's hit the rest of the east coast, but for now it's just cloudy and a bit misty, but it's 50 degrees. The roads are kind of wet, so I decided not to ride.

3 miles, mostly running, but slowly. I stopped wearing my Garmin, because I just want to enjoy being outside for now. Also, I'm trying to work on my form. Now, I have to try and work on stretching or something to avoid the various pains and such I always have after I run.

I ran barely 3 (2.9878 or something like that) this morning, in the above weather (50 degrees - balmy! - and kinda humid.) I was overdressed and that was a little uncomfortable. Other than that it was o.k... 10:11 min. miles because I felt lazy and it's a hill all the way back home.

I wore my new "vegas vest." That's what DH calls it. It is flashy!

Went on a 4 mile run today after work. It was pretty warm out...50 with a fair amount of wind which made it feel cooler. Glad I wore tights. Have a great day everyone

By the time I finished doing other things today it was kind of dark to run (especially given that it was also pouring rain) so I did something I haven't done in a while: I went to the Y and used the tiny track there for about 35 minutes. Barefoot, of course. There were a bunch of teenagers (mostly boys, mostly practicing boxing etc. rather than running) up there...surprised none of them made any smart-aleck comments about my lack of shoes. It wasn't a bad run, actually--I was fairly relaxed given how awkward I felt walking into the track area and seeing how crowded it was. Maybe the fact that I was listening to some good music helped (I don't normally run with music, but if running indoors I need it to help with the boredom). I would have done some pushups and pullups (there's a bar on one wall by the track) but didn't really want to put my upper-body wimpiness on display for the kids who were up there; I had hoped there wouldn't be anyone else there but apparently that doesn't happen between 5 and 6 pm.
