|I took off Monday and Tuesday to rest the right head of fibula. Yesterday, I went to the Moorestown Running Company to get fitted for some new kicks. It was a toss up between the Adidas Supernova Sequence and the Mizuno Wave Inspire 4. They both felt really good. So I got both. I figured I could just alternate between the two. It would be better for my injury.|
I took the Adidas out for today's 2miler since they matched my pink shirt. They felt wonderful. And my right head of fibula felt completely healed. I doubt that it is, but that's how it felt. I'll still take it easy. I have that HM distance coming up on Saturday. I'm not sure if I'll attempt the distance. Maybe I'll just go for the 10mi that I missed out on last weekend.
Anyway, on to the run. It's been a while since I've run only 2mi. So I don't know if I was excited that the distance was short, or if the new kicks were just that damn awesome, or rest just made me that much better, or if the 2lbs I dropped recently (that will make an appearance again soon) had anything to do with it, BUT it was one fast run (for me). I'm surprised that my first mile was as fast as it was. I checked Garmin in the beginning and saw 8:21. Ain't no way I can maintain that. Let me slow down. And I did but it was still way faster than any first mile I've ever run. Okay so mile 2 comes around, and I tell myself to just breathe. If I can't catch my breath, I've got serious problems and just need to hang it up for the day. I had that issue a few weeks ago. But not today. Today, I say, "Eat my dust, BITCHES!!" LOL.
Cool Down = .4mi
