Rain Rain Go Away... I Hate Running on Treadmills!

(I ran on the one sticking out)
Long run today!! I thought it was going well in the beginning, but after about 3 miles I hit a wall that was hard to recover from. I didn't eat and hydrate as well as I could have, but I did finish my 7-mile run in less than an hour. I had planned to wake up early this morning and run on the trail by the river, but the lightning storms pushed my run till almost 4:30 when I finnally gave in and ran on the treadmill. Whenever I run inside I have to watch sports - for inspiration. I watched the first half of the Bears - Steelers game. Da bears ended up winning - I don't really have preference for either, but kept thinking if they can play hard for 3 hours or so, then I can finish these boring 7 miles on the treadmill.

I had to run errands/ finish laundry after my room and did so without any energy! The back of my left leg is very tight. I need someone (uhhemm - Mr Incredible) to rub out that muscle. I have been stretching and will probably do some striders tommorrow to try and get out any extra lactic acid- which causes the stiffness.

I discovered a new sports drink today! I have been trying new "healthier" foods every week. (I try not to buy a lot of new foods at once - in case I don't like it and wasted all my grocery money on food that I don't like.) This Cliff drink was pretty good. I had a bannana with it. Mmmmm. They are a little pricey, but definately delicious!


  1. A Cliff drink? Hmmm... what flavor??

  2. I H-A-T-E the Dreadmill!!!! Kudos to you for getting it done!

    Thanks for stopping by my digs! What marathon are you training for?
