On Saturday I ran 14 miles, which is the farthest I have run since May 2011. And I think I need to work out my travel schedule better because an hour after I finished, I got in the car for the 2 hour trip back to Hollidaysburg for my father-in-law’s birthday. Sooooo between being sedentary after the run and neglecting foam rolling, my sore leg ended up being more sore than usual.
I ran an easy 3 miler on the treadmill yesterday. It should have been 6, but my will deferred to prudence and I cut it short. Which is good, because today I feel much better. This week is a setback week and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier. I really am going to try harder to do more cross training but cross training makes my least favorite activities list with “cooking” and “waking up early.”
Another point of interest for you runners: my Garmin crapped out on me during my run. It completely lost reception and, coincidentally, it was right when it started to rain. Has anyone else had that kind of trouble with a Garmin? I have a FR10…My FR305 never did that to my knowledge, but I had it long enough that I may have forgotten if it has happened before.
My posts really lack photos. Since my last blogging stint, I’ve become relatively anti-selfie. I actually will unfollow people on Instagram if they post too many selfies. Yep, “too many” is completely relative. I’m actually struggling with the thought that this blog re-birth is too self indulgent to begin with. I know my life isn’t that exciting, but I like to write and I like to run. I also like taking photos, but I don’t make it a habit to carry my dSLR on my runs. Occasionally I snap a photo on my run with my iPhone, but I don’t like taking photo breaks. I also don’t like risking injury because I am trying to take photos while running. However, here’s a picture of the Ohio River that I took last week. Pretty cool, huh?
And here’s a picture (is it technically a selfie?) from the weekend. This is how they celebrate birthdays in the sticks:
And here’s picture of Lucy that I took last week:
