Does this shadow make me look fat?
I didn't weigh this week. I'm revolting against the scale right now. Just tired of focusing so much on a number. Plus I don't think it would have been good so I'll wait and hopefully get a pleasant surprise later.
My leg is still bothering me. But I have managed to run more this week. I ran on Tuesday and Wednesday. Was sore today so took it off. Will run tomorrow. Been doctoring myself. Went out to the barn and got the Bigeloil. Hey, if it works on horse tendons, it should help mine, huh?
I think my shoes were an issue with the injury. I really noticed my feet rolling to the inside. I'm guessin' I'd broke them down. So they were retired and started my new pair yesterday. I felt such a difference in the stability. So hopefully that will help.
The first 5K race of this year is a week from this Saturday. I'm pretty excited. I'm getting my times down. Now my easy run is at a 10 minute pace. I'm not even breathing hard after 3 miles. This race is in a pretty small town. So I don't know if there will be many runners. It'll be a good one to start with because I have another race a month later. It's one of my favorites. I ran it for several years back in the day. I looked up my previous times and back in 2006, I won 2nd place in my age group with a 26:08. I don't think I'm that fast yet but hopefully I'm within a minute or so.
There will be a wrench thrown in my running between now and then however. I have to go out of town for two weeks the first of April for work. The training will be very physical and I'm worried I won't have energy to run in the evenings. I'll have to figure something out.

On a side note, Dee from Say Anything, interviewed me for her blog. She promotes different blogs throughout the week. I felt very honored that someone actually thought enough of this lil site to showcase it. My interview will be posted Friday morning if anyone is interested. But y'all already know all about me so go over and check out some of the other blogs she's chosen.
