Wednesday 11.0 miles/1:37:20/8:51 average pace
That's kind of a long way to run after work. Luckily I got off work a few minutes early, and with the ever-later sunset I got most of my run done before dark. My right inside knee was pretty sore all day yesterday, but felt ok on the run. But both my arches were feeling tight/sore off and on during the run. Since I had an abundance of sore spots I decided to take an ice bath when I got home. I made a cup of tea and soaked in ice water for 10 minutes. Brrr. Then I took a hot shower and made a yummy dinner and watched some hockey.
Anyway I added up the mileage on my shoes, suspecting they were done, and I was right. 410 miles including my marathon in December... time for new shoes. I usually don't go over 400 miles on my Mizuno Wave Alchemys. In fact, I only had like 350 on my previous pair so I'll go back to those for the next few days till my new ones arrive. I ordered them from Zanzabar Bazaar online- they have the best price ($76.00) and consistently send out discount codes if you get on the email list. And free shipping. :) No offense, Forward Motion, you have a great shop and a Tri club I'm considering joining (which would actually get me a discount..), but I'd pay like $110 including tax at your store, and that sucks. Yay internet.
In swimming news, I've been out of bed and in the pool crazy early the last two days!
Wednesday 1200 m in 24:45
Thursday 800 m in about 17:00
So I have 4 or 5 miles tomorrow morning then 15 on Saturday, then skiing on Sunday. It's supposed to be awesome up in Tahoe- SO much snow but sunny weather forecast for this weekend. Perfect! :)
LOST is on tonight!!
Finally, wtf is wrong with blogger? I haven't been able to spell check for like a weke. (ha)
