three things thursday

1.  Running is amazing.  It's so awesome.  I love it.  I feel so good.  Tuesday, I did the walk/run thang, running 11 minutes of out a 25 minute total on the treadmill.  Every muscle in my legs took turns yelling, "W. T. F." but calmed back down after I sent the message: running is here to stay!  This morning, I did more of the walk/run thang, running 19 minutes out of a 33 minute total on the treadmill, including an 8:30 mile.  LOOK OUT 2012 OLYMPICS.


However, not sure about the 2150's.  They feel great to run in, but the inside of my left heel is rubbing a bit on the side.  Going to fuss with laces and just run a few more weeks before I ditch them.  Did my ankles lose weight?


2. This weather (plus a side of ear/sinus infection) means I haven't been out on the bike since MCM spectating.  This means 2 things: a) time to buy the winter kit and b) I am really looking forward to my Sunday long ride, because I can tell that the outdoor riding is going to be intermittent for the next 5 months.  Saddest of cycling pandas.  


3. I still haven't weighed myself, but when I pulled on my dress pants yesterday, they were a wee bit snug.  Looks like the 2.5-week cupcakeapalooza is officially over.

  1. Yay for progress! See I knew you'd be back out killing it! w00t!!!

    As for the 2150s I noticed my newest pair did that but after a few runs it was fine. Keep at it.

    Have a great ride this weekend!!!

  3. HURRAH!!! I'm actually looking forward to winter biking. Makes me feel hard-core, and it has been far too long since I've felt that way!

  11. I wear 2150s too. I get the same rub on my inner heal for the first 25 miles or so. It stops. It it really bothers you, put some Body Glide on the spot. 2160s are out now too. They feel EXACTLY the same to me.

  12. "Running is amazing. It's so awesome. I love it. I feel so good." Yes, yes, yes! Isn't it great getting a reminder of just how much you love running? One of the only good things about a hiatus from running for recovery purposes. Keep that joy in mind as you start adding the miles!
