Yesterday ended nicely with a visit to the doctor, who told me I can resume my normal life. Woo hoo! I'll go see him again before vaca, but he seemed confident that I was on the mend. Woo hoo! (again)
Last night I had someone from Craigslist come by to buy a chair I'm selling, and she was just proof that not everyone who responds to items on craigslist is crazy. She was a young grandmother and soooo sweet, so I felt better parting with the chair knowing where it was going. Then after a friend of a friend came to look at my apartment. Those two activities pushed me to clean up a bit, which was badly needed.
This morning...I RAN!!!
It was about 48 degrees in NYC when I headed out (so probably a bit cooler by me). It was leisurely and quite nice. My goal was to run without stopping, which I did. I don't usually have a set path, rather just see where the run takes me and then check my mileage when I get home. However I do always time myself so I have a rough estimate of how far I've gone. (I can do anywhere from 10-12 minute miles.)
I was running for about 37 minutes, so I figured that was between 2-3 miles, especially since I was RUSTY. When I clocked the route in to Map My Run, it came up as 3.28 (yes, it's 11+ minute miles, but whatever!). Nice! That's more than my 5K distance which means that as I hoped, the race shouldn't be an issue. Phew.
So the day is off to a good start.
Lots to do plus an 8 Minute event tonight. Time to get slammin'. (not even sure what that means, it just came out)
Have a great Thursday!!
