Good Feeling

This morning, I had a great run to the gym. It was about 40 degrees with a slight breeze and barely anyone on the roads. I did hit a few traffic lights, but nothing that held me up too much. I was so excited to hit the weights (I know, it sounds odd the hear me say that). I spent 20 minutes on my legs, 20 minutes on my core and the final 20 minutes on my arms. I am sore (in the best way possible). The run home was the best part. I hit more traffic lights, was able to get a great groove in my stride and made it home in less time than it took me to get there. I am feeling great today!!

My big toe has been hurting me for about a week. I've had nail polish on it, so I couldn't see anything. I didn't really think anything of it (the pain was so very light). I took my nail polish off and there was a small bruise (I guess it's time to stop taking my iron pills, so it will heal). I'm glad the new polish is dark enough to cover it. I have runners feet, but on the bottom. No one needs to see any nastiness.

I've gotten some much stuff done today: I've iced, stretched, elevated, de-boned a chicken, made more granola bars, showered, made the bed, watched a few shows and now it's almost time to make dinner. WOW!! My day is flying by. I hate it when Saturday go by so fast, it means the work week is almost here (but my race is just that mcuh closer!!).

This smile proves of how good I feel. I am ready to conquer the full 13.1 miles in 7 days.

I have a few more recipes I will share with you guys tomorrow. Also, you will be meeting the hubs behind the runner tomorrow. I know, very exciting stuff going on here.
