2. But this week I have been running every other day! The first two days were perfect. Well sort of. But the third day is what gets me. I don't feel a need to stop this time but I did push it a little hard and iced twice last night. I think it is more when I pick up the pace (not fast just not as deadly slow) that my
foot protests. But when I went swimming today my kick felt totally pain free (my barometer). How do you know how much to push it? Is it good to push it a little to let your body take more and get used to more? Should you only play it safe? It is so hard. "If I can do (insert mileage or pace here) then surely I can do this (insert more mileage or faster pace here.) I have liked being on the treadmill where I can stop at any time and don't have to watch out for those nasty potholes but one of these days I am going to get outside.
3. Back to the pool....... It continues to be crowded and this morning there was a sign that next week it is going to start opening at 5:45 instead of 5:00. That isn't going to help. Usually there are some people leaving by 5:30. Yikes! I'm glad I'm not going as much because worrying about getting into the pool can be stressful!
Not the way to start your day....
This morning I wore my new bright skinny jeans to school feeling pretty snazzy. When I left off my lunch in the teacher's room a co worker asked, "Did you bike to school?" "No" I said with some puzzlement in my voice. Puzzlement ignored, "You have your biking pants on. Those are great for biking." Really? Not exactly what I wear for biking but...... I work with my students all the time to think before you talk. Perhaps I need to invite this person in for one of our lessons. Oh well, I was just doing my part to hurry spring along and by afternoon it was quite pleasant outside.
