Checkin' in

Hello all -

I've run a few times this week - and even ran outside on a beautiful Monday the other day - have been pushing myself to run faster and I also started a weight training program to strengthen and tone my arms and legs.

Now, things are starting to feel sore. My ankle is bothering me, my calves feel tight - I'm not sure what's going on. Perhaps the speed training? Hmm.  Maybe my skimping on stretching - I don't know but I'm not going to do anything tomorrow with my legs and hope they feel a little better by my Friday run. For Friday, I've decided to back off the speed and do a nice, comfortable 4 miles.

In transit - hopefully to arrive soon
In other news, I ordered this TWO WEEKS ago and am ANXIOUSLY awaiting the arrival of my new Nike + I ordered it brand new off of ebay because I had an ebay gift card but this sloooooooow delivery is killing me.

XO

Hey Jen!

I don't know if you remember, but I posted a comment here on your blog a few months ago (seems like ages! it was right before you ran the first 1/2)... I said that I had been toying with the idea of running. You told me to stop toying and start running and I did! Just wanted to say that you've been a great inspiration - I've lost 10 lbs, gotten SO MUCH FITTER, and I'm so addicted to running! Thanks for getting me out there!

PS - My other saving grace is my Nike +... best invention ever! Have fun getting gadget-y!
