In the pouring down rain...

Well, they don't cancel a race for rain. So, I can't not run because it was going to rain. When, I didn't know, but I figured it would happen somewhere along the route. At about 2 miles it began to POUR!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pour pour pour.

I did my scheduled 4 miles in 36:09. I have a wrap around my shin and boy, does it feel better. Dang shin splints. I think I'm going to try some compression socks. Heading to physical therapy tomorrow afternoon and I'm sure they'll make me want to scream during the massage. ha! But it always feels better when it's over and done with. So, what I initially went to see the physical therapist for (ITB) no longer exists and I have all this other crud going on. Boo.

I haven't quite decided if I am going to sign up for the 1/2 marathon on May 1. I was hoping I'd be pain free by now. So, I'll discuss that tomorrow, too.

Nothing new on the food front. I have been eating quite well and I think I mentioned before my alcohol consumption has decreased to maybe once on the weekend. so, all is well.

I'm really enjoying all these running blogs out there. It's so motivated and great to see how many people enjoy it. I'm jealous of all the places people get to run though. I'm getting bored of my hood. ha!


  1. It sounds like you are doing all the right things. Trying the compression socks is probably a good idea. I know a lot of runners who swear by them. I'm really enjoying your blog, BTW.

  2. Honestly, I don't *mean* to make you jealous! ;)
