Tuesday night I decided to go for a run while C was in her singing class. I really wasn’t feeling it and would has preferred to get a Starby and sit and read my book. But I figured I have a 5km run coming up in a couple weeks and haven’t been running much so I should really do it. It was a chilly day so I figured I needed to pull out my full tights instead of the crops or shorts I usually wear. I could not find them anywhere. I searched every drawer and my closet but no luck. So I remembered I had bought these cozy sounding fleece lined leggings and I grabbed those. I wore my warm running socks and a tank and a long sleeve running shirt. I even packed my ear warmer head band.
I was warm enough. I had chosen perfectly. I wore my old running shoes because I have been noticing my calves have been sore lately after a run so I thought I would go back to my old runners- my Mizuno’s and that was a good decision. No pain in my calves. But the leggings were a big mistake. When I bought them they only came in one size. One size fits all. Really? Does it? No it doesn’t. Not in this case. And unfortunately for me I discovered this during a run. I pretty much had to hold my pants up during the whole run!
Running warmth… and I’ve missed these shoes
I forgot how good it feels to run in the fall. I love the leaves and I love when it’s cooler out. I find it easier to keep going, and it feels good with the cold air. When I got back to C’s music school I noticed my breath was really wheezy. It wasn’t hard to breathe or anything, there was just a whistling sound coming from deep in my chest. So strange. It went away as I warmed up.
When we got home I did my plank. It was supposed to be 2.5 minutes. This was my second attempt at it. J was out, so I was on my own. I decided to set the timer and hide my phone so I couldn’t watch the clock. I think that strategy worked. I dropped one knee a couple times and then I just lost it and dropped. It’s totally mental… I know I could have kept going despite the fact that everything hurt. I was so mad when I saw I only had 10 seconds left!!! UGH! I was SO close! I have another try tonight to get it.
Hope everyone has a great day! We are halfway to the weekend!
