I went for my massage on Monday. It was great. I was surprised that I didn't feel worse. I guess your body doesn't hate you as much if you don't run as fast. I walked with Janzen about a mile on Saturday night and then Sunday night. I spent the rest of the week stretching and walking. Then yesterday, Janzen was home from work all day and we went to get new tires put on his car. I talked him into running with me while they worked on it. We loaded up the jogging stroller and went about 2 miles. It was fun to be out with Janz and it was nice to run again. I really wanted to go farther once we got home, but decided I'd be good and not push it. I ran 4 1/2 miles this morning to return some videos and pick up some cream cheese for some cookies I made today. I'm sure I looked pretty funny running with a packet of cream cheese in my hands, but it was all softened by the time I got home. I didn't even take my watch so that I wouldn't be tempted to time myself.
Thanks to George Bush and his unwise ways, I did my part to "strengthen" the economy and I ordered myself a Garmin gps watch. I'm pretty excited to get it and try it out. I think it will be pretty fun and will be a good training tool. All things considered, it was a good week.
