Yesterday I ended up having a great run. I did 4 miles and ended up doing 2 on the treadmill and 2 outside (because my husband came home :) The treadmill miles were easy, like 10 min/ mile...but my first mile outside I pushed and ended up running an 8:10! I haven't run that fast since right after I got pregnant with Nolan...so it was encouraging. And it was even against the wind. Although, for some strange reason, I tend to run better against the wind, I think I am more mentally tough against the wind (or in bad weather) and I don't think about the pain so much. I don't know. My heels and calves were a bit sore last night, but after rolling and sleeping in my compression socks, they feel great today. I am totally sold on compression socks now. I've liked running in them because I feel like they help support my ankles, and I especially think that they do a great job for recovery. These socks are the ones I have.
And I did a quick sewing project. Well they're never that quick, but it only took me an afternoon. A pillowcase for Joel and a bag for Jack for one of his toys. We're leaving for Texas on Saturday and I was able to cross this off of my to do list.
What's the last thing you crossed off your to do list?
