This morning, Caroline and I did a 10 mile run around her neighborhood. It was a great morning for a number of reasons. I got to run with my sister. It was perfect, slightly cooler weather. I got to see my brother-in-law and niece and nephew before and after the run. (I actually hung out longer than I should have afterwards and missed church, but I appreciate the time with them.) And I got my mileage in. I can’t ask for much more than that.
The back of my right leg is a bit sore. I’m not sure why, though I wonder if I was overcompensating for the slightly bum knee somehow. I’m hopeful it’ll feel better in the morning.
I’m still doing major spring cleaning. Today, I threw out anything that had hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup in it. That included crackers, some workout bars, my waffle mix, a salad dressing, popcorn, and a number of other items. I’m learning to read labels, and I’m learning how deceptive labels can be, particularly on the trans fat issue. I also cleaned out the second half of my closet, which included casual clothes, coats, and purses, and have much to donate to Mobile Loaves and Fishes. All in all, it was a rewarding day.
The plan for tomorrow is to do an early spin class and then meet Caroline for a short run, maybe 4 miles. It’ll be good to get a two-a-day in. It’s been a while. I suspect I’ll have more of them soon because my program with Jamie should start this week or next. Ironman Canada, I intend to be ready.
