Took Lex to preschool early this morning so I could hit the track before going to do a home visit with my mom and her cadre of physical therapists. Did some stretching and then started running. “I wonder if I could do six laps?” I thought to myself. Turns out, hell yes I can!
I didn't feel as strong at the end of this run as I did after my bike-path run the other day — probably because I hadn't eaten breakfast — but I could probably have run another two laps if I'd had the time/inclination. Soooo happy! Then I walked a lap to cool down. Shins felt pretty good throughout.
So, for those of you keeping score, that's a mile-and-a-half of running without stopping. Booyah!
P.S. Happy birthday El!
