Coming off of Sunday’s running high I hit the dreaded hills yesterday. The Plan called for 4 but I was barely making my times and my left shin was throbbing. I also got sweat in my eye after number 2 (owie). Listening to my body, I decided to call it a day at 3. Typically, I would be beating myself up about this but since I had such a great race on Sunday, I am not going to sweat it. Today, after all is another day (cue Gone With the Wind Tara’s theme).
I am still wearing my toe socks on my long runs and very much enjoy them. They seem to be helping my toes and are like a hug for each little piggy. I have been wearing Injinji, but there are a few other brands out there.
As this post is such an aromatic potpourri of topics I would like to direct your attention to the Redhead’s blog post today. It’s hilarious. I mean, hilarious if you laugh at your good friend’s pain like I do. (JK Redhead, hope your eye is better soon!)
The Redhead is coming for a visit next month and is going to do one of her long runs with the BRA. Stay tuned for those posts as I am sure hilarity will ensue, as it often does with us. NOTE: She refers to me as Crazy B.
Tonight I am headed to the Four Green Fields Pub run. It’s usually a fun run that is followed up with a beer or two. I should get 4 in today to get my week back on track. Four miles that is, not 4 beers.
UPDATE: Two Redhead sightings in ONE month. I have been talked in to heading her way for the 4th of July. Pics to follow….
Have fun on your run tonight!
Will let you know how the bike riding goes 🙂
OOoooo how fun! This like the Orlando Hash House Harriers, I've been dying to do one of these! Tell me how it goes! How fun!
I can't wait for our long run in a few weeks!
Oh and thanks for laughing at me… 😛
Interesting socks! Have lots of fun on the run later today.
I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!!! I get two weeks of Crazy B and I think I like it!
i'm liking the toe socks for long bike rides. tried them for a short run and didn't notice much. haven't tried them on a long run yet though
I want to hear more about these toe socks…hmmmm…
thats me by the way 🙂 post above.
i am starting to think i need to get these socks! my right pink toe has had a blister for MONTHS from rubbing against it's neighbor. can't get it to go away.
the sweat-in-the-eye feeling is awful. i get it daily, and one of these days i will run into something when i am having to run with my eyes closed!
hope the pub run went well!
I might have had a brew once or twice in there. Beer is a good motivator for a run wouldn't you say?
Stopping by from SITS:) I saw the Spibelt in your header pic- I looove mine. Have a great day!
I run in the toe socks sometimes. They seemed to help with the blisters, but if I run really far, they seem to cause me some achilles problems (how weird is that?)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for letting me know about the comments feature. I like your blog, so I'll follow!
Hi! I just found your blog, and am enjoying it very much!
I agree that sweat in the eyes is not a fun thing!
And good job on your recent race; way to go!
