If at first you don't succeed

Well I tried street running again today. I went a different route. . .one without so much incline. My knee is still aching a bit, but not as bad as last week. My calves feel fine, my shins are hurting some but that is nothing new ~ they are pretty much always painful to touch. I was able to jog the entire stretch I set out to do. I thought it was 1.5 miles but just used mapmyrun and turns out it is only 1.37 ~ close but no cigar. When soccer season would start and we had to run 3 miles I used to have a 'jog as slow as you want, just don't walk' rule which I did today. Some stretches were VERY slow jogging, but I didn't walk the entire 1.37 miles (I walk to warm-up/cool-down so entire thing was 1.95 mi). Running is as much of a mental game as it is physical. 

Then I came home and did 30 minutes (7 miles) on the recumbent bike. Off to shower then head to church. . . I slept in this morning :)

7 people are laughing with me:

Honestly, I am totally impressed. I HATE running. There is a treadmill downstairs here in the hotel and I have been thinking about it, but then decide to go to the Cheesecake Factory instead.

We went to Mass at 11 am so that we could go out to lunch afterwards!! So I added 100 million calories instead of working them off..... but we don't start till Wednesday, right? :)
