My Back Yard
The going wasn't bad at all. Things were a little sloppy in the lower areas, but nothing I couldn't step through and avoid splashing road slop onto the tops of my shoes. I hate that and try to avoid it as much as possible! I always thought it was ironic - and by ironic I mean aggravating - that my socks could be otherwise dry and then get soaked by one splash of liquid onto the meshy top of my running shoes. Arg!
So 2 miles to the store. Picked up bacon and some bananas. Then 2 miles back. I got my run in and my shopping trip at the same time. After being mildly sick this week, it felt good to get out there again.
Though I ran very few miles last week, I'm ready to pick it up over the next few days. I'm actually eager to start doing some speed work. I met a new running buddy who's pace is faster than mine, but I'm confident that I can catch up to her pace with a few weeks of effort.
Also, please send your healing vibes and well wishes the hubby's way at the end of this week. He's getting his tonsils out on Thursday!
