Other fun stuff and ramblings about my weekend:
- I found out today that I won another giveaway! And it's another Bondi Band! Sarah at Running Mama hosted a giveaway to celebrate having over 100 followers and her husband chose my name out of a hat. I'll get one of the two shown below, but I have to wait to find out which one. There was another winner and she gets first choice. I think that it'll be nice when the weather is a little better - my running hat is starting to
smelllook a little worse for wear.
- I had a really good run on Sunday. I was supposed to be tapering for my half marathon that's coming up on the 27th, but ever since I missed my 10km tempo last Wednesday (see last post #6) I had been craving a run. Now, this has never happened to me. Usually if I miss/skip a run I don't feel the need to make up for it. However, I just HAD to get out on a longer run. Thankfully C was very understanding; though I would have understood if he hadn't been given that it was Father's Day and I left him at home with the boy. We ran 13km over a fairly hilly route in about 1-1/2 hours. It was great! Lesson learned for the day: Gu Roctane is no better for me than regular Gu - for half the price and better flavours, I'll stick with what I already know.
- C and I have started doing his strength/stretch exercises from when he was in physio. I'm pretty sure it's starting to help (or else it's just being hopped up on extra-strength ibuprofin). As long as I fix whatever it is that's bothering my leg right now - here's praying it's only residual from bad shoes, not ITB issues - I think I'll be fine. The only part that bothers me is that it takes over 30 minutes to complete. At least we can do it together - now that's romantic!
