OK, ok, ok. So your wondering, “What did she do, take off running and forget to come back?” Sorry I haven’t Blah, Blah, Blogged in a few days. Things have been kind of busy around these parts.

I took another day off on Monday. Ran 5 miles last night at sunset and another 4 this morning about 7. This morning’s run was GREAT! But it’s SO difficult to run at night, after you’ve eaten, in the heat. + I twisted my ankle! What a BUMMER. The crazy thing is that it happened on some uneven concrete down town about a mile into our run, and when it happened, my running partner said, “Are you OK?” Well, I didn’t even think anything about it. It didn’t really hurt when I did it. Now this is the CRAZY part — About 2 or 3 miles later my ankle started hurting and I remember commenting to my partner a couple of times, “Boy, my ankle hurts…what’s up with that?” I didn’t even put the two together. How crazy is that?!? It just hurt a little then but WoW, when I got out of the shower it was REALLY starting to hurt. It ached all night. I iced it 3 times and propped it up most of the night. It kept me awake a good portion of the night. This morning though, it felt fine. So, I wrapped it and went for a run promising myself only to run if it felt good. It was GREAT the whole run, no pain at all. But, when I got back it hurt to walk on it and it feels really, really tight — go figure. I’ll look for an ankle brace today and take some Aleve, again…

I’ll probably do good at this rate just to get my 25-mile base in this week. Don’t want to push anything with this ankle thing.

Difficult run. Out the door at 6. Darker than usual. VERY humid! I sweat like a PIG! 5 miles. Did I say humid? VERY HUMID! Probably will have thunder storms this afternoon. Didn’t sleep well last night.

Good 5-mile run. 2 miles through the park with a hyper dog. Knees a little stiff and hip joints, especially the right one, stiff. Ate a breakfast bar before the run with about 8 oz. of H2O.

SUPER GREAT run this morning. Probably the best run I’ve ever had. 6 miles. Felt great. Strong all the way to the end. Didn’t eat any bugs. Only took a little water before the run. Out the door at 6 a.m. back by 7 or a little before. Took Aleve last night. Really helps the old joints to function better without being stiff. GREAT stuff! I’m not a pill popper but I like the freedom this stuff gives me.

HELP! I swallowed a bug! I was coughing and gagging and almost threw up… It was really, really gorse! Another reason to wear the Breath Right strips and breath through your nose!
 
Good 5 mile run this morning. Out the door at 6 a.m. A little warmer than it had been last week. I plan to do 5-6-5-6-5-6 this week. 5 miles today, six tomorrow and so on all the way through to Saturday. Expanding my base to 33 miles.
 
Took 2 Aleve after running. A little stiff. Need to stretch more!

Ran 3 miles yesterday afternoon. Difficult in the heat and with food in my belly.
 
THIS MORNING a PB (personal best) 5K time of 24:43. Whew…. Finally made the 25 cut! Good race on the 5th Runway at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport but the wind was a bear, especially at the end. But I did it! OK, now to break 24…
