I woke up to the sound of gentle rain. GREAT sleeping weather. Then it dawned on me that I had to run today. I scratched my plan to wear shorts (could only imagine the chaffing....) and pulled on my trusty running capris, my new shirt (yk, *the* shirt) and my running hat. I hate running with a hat on, but today I didn't mind it. 65 degrees, 80% humidity and light rain. Not too bad, but definitely more humidity than I care for. I was scheduled to run 3 miles, ended up doing about 3.5. I even managed to put in a few intervals. Cooper just can't keep up with sprints! My left shin hurt a bit (need to ice it tonight!) and by the end of the run (which was about .4 miles uphill) my left glute hurt. The pain has resolved with stretching, but I thought that was weird. Yesterday, as part of my cross-training, I did Barry's Bootcamp Arms and Abs. OUCH!! My arms were tired yesterday, like to the point I couldn't raise them over my head without assistance. Today, I just hurt. Guess I'm not as "fit" as I thought, which is a good reminder to keep my workouts changed up. Just because I can do all of Jillian's videos, doesn't mean I can do all others! I can't believe week 2 is almost coming to an end. I can't wait for October to get here....I have so much enthusiasm and momentum right now. I don't want to lose it!
