Day 20

Sorry!  I haven’t been updating my fit life, probably because it hasn’t been too fit lately!  I know you are all going to be SHOCKED, but I CAVED a little bit over the weekend with my NO SUGAR challenge!  Those of you that know me  are laughing at me (:  All is well!!  I’m the creator of my own goals, so I will tag on a few days at the end and call it 100 DAYS!!!  Hee hee!  I’m not even going to list the many excuses for falling off the wagon.  I will say that I’m DONE and I’m running far away from that and it won’t happen again (:

Let’s talk about running.  I have reached the hardest week in my marathon training.  I need a 10 miler and a 20 miler this week.  A very small nagging pain has started bugging me a little too!!!  AHHHH!!!  Saturday we ran 15 miles after running 6 miles the day before and my right calf muscle started feeling it!  I rubbed it out, foam rolled it, sat in a cold bath, ibuprofined it, and took a couple days off.  Today we ran 10 miles up the canyon and it felt better, but the pain kind of moved a little to the side of my calf?  Anyway, I decided to try an old person thing (I shouldn’t say that) and buy some compression calf guards.  Here is what they look like:

Well, we’re on our last week of summer.  Mixed feelings about the changing of the seasons and schedules.  I’m still loving the warm weather as always.

Have a beautiful day!  After our 10 mile run, my friend and I hit ZUMBA in twinner outfits.  We are kindred spirits!!


Here’s a sweet song.  I want to play the piano on the beach (:
