My son is in Colorado!!! He will be back at home next week!!! It was so good to see him on Sunday night, I could not begin to describe it!!! (sorry for all the exclamation points, but I can't help it!!!) The above is a picture of my son and daughter. On a happy, hot, summer night in Colorado. Life is good. He looks happy and healthy and relaxed (but this picture doesn't make him look too happy) and I am so relieved to see that he still has his goofy sense of humor.
Thoughts about my treadmill workout on Sunday... it felt good while I was doing it. I was a little sore afterwards, which I thought was good. However, on Monday morning, I woke up, stepped out of bed and had the beginning pain of plantar fasciitis. I was nearly crippled by that a year ago. Then in September, I bought my super dooper Brooks Trance 6s and the pain went away. Now my second pair of super dooper Brooks Trance 6s have 301 miles on them. My question is: Is it the shoes? Or is it the treadmill? I will be buying a new pair of shoes soon, so I guess that will answer the question.
I took a day of vacation today because I am so tired. I started looking at the clock at work yesterday at about 10:00 a.m., I was SO TIRED. I decided I need a day completely off. So here I am.
This morning I went for a 4 mile run outside in a completely new place. It is a bike trail along a river bed and into a golf course. It is pretty and has some slight grades and little hills, but is pretty flat. My time was better. Not stellar, but better than usual. Maybe if I just mix it up between outdoor running and treadmill, I will be able to work on my speed a little bit. It was a nice morning and a nice run, but a little bit hot. Have you ever been so hot that your eyes feel hot behind your sunglasses? I kept taking them off to give my face some air... funny.
