Real Running Conversations

Wow, I love all the comments on the last post.  I am so glad to know that I am not the only one who can get a little crazy while running.  🙂

Tuesdays seem to be turning into a typical rest day for me.   I had briefly thought about trying to squeeze in a run before my doctor’s appointment but I didn’t get off early enough.  That was probably a good thing as it was pretty warm when I got home and I was still in a little funk from Monday’s rambling 🙂     So instead, I went to the doctor (yuck) and then just had an easy night.  And maybe some pizza.  🙂

Yesterday, I had the beginning’s of a migraine but I was ready to run.  I knew I was meeting M after work to run a few miles.   I haven’t run with M since last fall, so I was excited.  Then I found out C was joining us-sweet!     As I drove up to M’s house, I had to laugh out loud.   They were both waiting on the sidewalk and somehow without planning it first, we all wore pink.  Like bright pink, so 3 blondes in pink tanks.  And blogger fail, I forgot to take a picture.  😦   We didn’t really have a route planned but it didn’t matter.  We ran when we wanted to, walked when needed and talked a lot.  It was great.  M’s just getting back into running so when we passed her house at 2.6 miles, she peeled off and C and I rounded it out to 4 miles.    Now if we can just make it a weekly thing.

While it was a great run, it still felt hard.  Granted, I don’t usually talk (out loud) and run at the same time.  Then a light bulb clicked- my doctor had ordered a bunch of lab work and I had the blood work done that morning.  That lady was a vampire!   Seriously, how many vials did she need?!   And she left me with a gnarly bruise.  That could have made me a little tired.  Oops.2.5miles

That headache that was niggling yesterday was a full-blown migraine when I woke up this morning.   It got so bad, that I actually took something for it at work.  Our first aid kit makes me smile, I took a “Pain Terminator” today.  I love the names they make up for their generics 🙂 I also accepted that the planned 6 miler was not happening.  Instead I headed to the lake for a short 2 miles.  Sometimes, running can help my head.  Usually I would head to the gym for the treadmill but I figured the lake was just as good.  If my head was pounding after the first lap, I could call it done.   It wasn’t easy but it wasn’t horrible either, actually pretty speedy.  I finished 2 laps plus a tiny bit to hit 2.5 miles and headed home for the comfy chair.   Interestingly Nike says I ran through the lake tonight-

ummm, not so much
ummm, not so much

I did get an inhaler from my doctor on Tuesday but I haven’t noticed any difference in either run.  Then again I was never very good at using one.  🙂   But in yummy news, we have awesome customers and I got to enjoy this today-cheesecake Anyone racing this weekend?

Any big plans?

  1. I love generic names in our first aid kit at work, too. Our equivalent is called Pain Away. Oh, OK little pill. You just take it right away, huh? LOL

    Nice job running through the water. Must have made for some crazy resistance! 😉

    • Oh I like that, Pain Away, it kind of sounds like a nursery rhyme.
      The geese would really have cause to attack me if ran through their water, good incentive to go fast though!
