This is how I spent 2 hours of my afternoon. Happiness.
Sunday it was 60+ so I headed out for a 5 or 6 mile run. I was trying out my newest pair of running shoes (Mizuno Wave Creation 14). They felt good, the weather was perfect, and I ran...10.6 miles. In 1:17. It felt so good to be out running in warm weather, I just didn't want to stop!
Monday I had school til 3:30, a mtng at 4, and another mtng at 7:30. I got home from the 1st meeting at 5:20, and somehow in the 5 minutes it took me to throw on running clothes, it started raining. Of course I ran anyway...I powered through a 3.57 mile run. I love how much faster I run in the rain... I developed shin splints about 2 miles in, but hopefully it was only because I didn't tie my shoes tightly enough. I suppose I'll find out when I run this afternoon. I'm afraid that the new shoes aren't supporting my arches well enough...but hoping hoping hoping that that is not the case.
