After a brief hiatus from running at which time I was fully focused on swimming, I decided this week was as good as any to dust off the old running shoes and get out there again. On Monday, I managed to squeeze in 20 minutes before the rains chased me back into the house. Overall, this was a pretty good warmup to running again. Not too long to make me real sore the next day and I put in a little sprinting at the end when I was racing towards the house. Not trying to sound like a chicken..I don't mind the rain, but I don't dig the thunder and lightning combo pack. After the run, I did some crunches/sit-ups, arm weights and 30 minutes on the hula hoop. I'm enjoying getting back to "hooping" but I think I may have to look into other hoops since mine continues to give me bruises around my hip bones. I'll give it a couple more weeks to see how it goes.
Last night was a better run. I was out there for about 35 minutes and did a half mile of walking and 2.5 miles running. It had been raining for a couple hours prior to my run so when I got out there it actually seemed cooler. There was a nice breeze and the air temps seemed to have gone down a bit. Obviously the humidity was still pretty high cuz when I got home I was drenched in sweat. All for a good cause.
I'm feeling pretty good this morning. No aches and pains, just a nice muscle tightness from working the muscles a little harder this week. The pool and I have a date this evening, weather permitting of course.
Happy hump day..later chicas
