Wednesday: 20 min back, pushups +major leg stretching

Hey guess what? I did 3 miles on the treadmill this week and 3.5m outdoors. Each time it felt like I could go longer.  The ankle is surviving! Woo!

I have a new cross training goal and I need you guys to hold me to it. I want to do one yoga class a week. We literally have classes in the gym all week long (morning & evening), so there’s really no excuse for me not to try this out. I’m hoping the stretching and strengthening will help the extreme tightness in my legs in the long run. Because I miss long runs. Three miles, as awesome as they’ve been, i miss hitting 6-7-8-9-10 mile mark.

Would you believe that I forgot to pool run while I was at my brothers house over the weekend? Must have been too preoccupied with my Three Floyds beer and trying to get rid of the horrendous sports bra tan.

The last part of Indiana/Chicago trip was a stop at to see Cameron’s cousin Kyle and his wife Elise. She’s a blogger too, and we’ve grown closer because of it. And the running. Runners always stick together…

And if we’re not sticking together, we make things that stick together…

She’s had her fair share of ankle problems, so it was nice having a runner to talk to about my issues. We’re both doing Chicago Marathon in the fall (I actually know a TON of people running) so I can’t wait until October!
