21. Identical Twin. I love photograpy, writing, and running, even when they don't love me back. I've probably had more injuries in my running career than you can think of but I never let these trials get me down. I love challenges and proving the non-believers wrong :)
Waking up was actually quite easy this morning. I was in the middle of having a horrible dream and then my alarm went off. I knew if I just went back to sleep I was going to fall back into the dream right away so I just got up instead. I guess everything works out for a reason!
The only thing I was super careful about this morning was any of the remaining black ice. Yesterday morning I was running really early so I I decided I was going to try and scrape some of the ice off my car. Not only did I seriously fail in this endeavor but I also almost slipped on my ass because of some black ice beneath one of the snow piles I brushed off my car. I’m glad I saved myself, because as we all know, black ice is my mortal enemy and it would have sucked to lose another battle ha.
My run this morning was nothing special. I felt way more stronger than I did on Saturday and I didn’t even mind all the hills because my legs felt very refreshed. There was a little bit of discomfort in my shins on the downhills but maybe I should just look into getting some new shoes soon since these are near their end and I don’t want to switch over to my Nike Frees with only around 150 miles on them…they were causing me more pain than my current asics when the shins started up in October.
Soon I need to go get ready for just another day at the office. Training yesterday was awesome and I learned so much, but I am absolutely drained. We have a holiday party after work as well but I feel so exhausted at this point that I would rather just go home. I know I’ll go and stay for an hour or so but then I honestly just have to leave because i need to get home to drive to the airport to pick up Erin!!!
Because I am using my extra time before I have to get ready to ice right now, I’ll have to do my strengthening later after I get home and before I pick up Erin haha. AWWGHHH.
Although I may make a lunchtime visit to the gym today…but that’s always just for stress release and to get moving a little bit. If I go it’s gonna be the elliptical for sure.
Maybe I will have a little down time to work on it tomorrow?
I really want to get it out to you guys because there are some amazing shots I’m going to include but I just don’t have the time to screw with iMovie ahhh.
Just hang tight. I’ll make it happen soon. Some how. I can always work on it over Christmas break.
