Run: 6.2 Miles
Well, I was supposed to run 5 miles last night but due to several different factors I did not get it in so I decided to move it to tonight. I actually felt really good and decided to run an extra mile and just told myself it was punishment for eating all that ice cream this past weekend!!:):)
Didn't start my run until about 9pm tonight and when I walked outside it seemed really humid and at mile 2 I confirmed that yes indeed it was humid!:) The run was going really well up until about mile 5. I ran under this tree that hangs over the road slightly and hit this huge spider web...as soon as I hit it I saw this huge spider and I tried to duck but I hit it and had the web all over me...I was running and stripping off my Ipod and shirt as I went....and luckily I only had a mile or so left but man I was feeling like I had a million spiders crawling all over me and I thought that last mile would never end.:)
Hit the gym at lunch for my strength training and my shoulder really started to bother me and still does. I'm going to give it another week and see how it feels and if there is no change I need to visit my Doc just to make sure nothing serious is going on with it. Right now the pain is about an 8 out of 10. Hopefully a break from the weights will make it better. It really stinks because I love hitting weights so I really need to get this shoulder healed.
Here's the rundown of what I'll be doing this week:
Mon: 6.2 Miles + Strength - Completed
Tue: 4 Miles (easy)
Wed: 4 Miles (easy)
Thur: 3 Miles (tempo)
Sat: Cross Training
Sun: 9 Miles (long)
Total: 26.2 Miles
Strength: 1 session
Should be a fun week. My wife's niece is coming to visit from Texas this Friday and is going to stay a full week. Its been since 2003 since we've seen her. Gracie was just a baby and she is really excited that she's coming. The week after that we will be taking off to PA to see my parents and my grandfather for a few days. I'm so glad we were able to find some time to take off and head up north. At age 93 I don't know how many more visits I will have.
Well, off to get some sleep tomorrow afternoon we have our interview with the principal of the school we're considering for Gracie. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday morning! - Jason
