I took a few days off of running so I could give my plantar fasciia a break - I am SO glad I did that. My foot feels WORLDS better! I think I figured out my problem. I can't wear just any sneakers for walking around, so I dug out my old worn out running shoes and started wearing those for my every day shoes. I am just going to have to eke two years out of my running shoes. One year for running, and one year for daily use. I got this last pair around my birthday last year, I'm getting due for a new pair. I have no clue how I'm going to swing that. I wonder if I can get my name out there to start babysitting or something. I used to do that quite a lot. I'd miss my kids so much, but we really need the money. It's so hard trying to get by on one income. I wish I could find some craft that I could make quickly and inexpensively that I could sell and make decent money. Most of the crafts I make take way too much time to make.
Today is supposed to be a pretty warm day, I am really looking forward to it! I got my run in early so I could spend the time outside with the kids and not have to worry about when I was going to squeeze in my run! I'm so glad I did that! Pete and I decided to alternate our running days so we could both do our runs in the morning. I have NO idea why we had not thought of that before! *facepalm* I did intervals on the treadmill today - I'm on week 2 day 2 of the couch to 5k. Now I'm doing the running at 5 mph which is about a 12 minute mile. I'm also doing it at a 1 incline so I think that translates to a little faster. I'm so proud of myself! It's comfortably hard. When I first started running last year I couldn't even run five seconds on 4.0 - I remember trying it once and thinking it was an insane pace! It cracks me up to think I have not improved much but then to look back and actually have a solid memory like that! What a difference a year makes! Maybe next year I will be running a 9 minute mile and thinking I'm slow and looking back to this post and laughing! I think I'm going to have to go back and read some of my early posts today. That should be a hoot! Anyway - I think we are going to get together with some of Colin's friends and have some fun in the sunshine! 59 degrees sounds like a good outside day to me! I don't think his friends like baseball, but I'm sure Colin would enjoy hitting a few balls and playing catch!
Thanks for reading! Have a WONDERFUL day! -Monica
