The good: was in the zone on the treadmill at the gym last night. Doing hills on a steady incline, keeping up my pace, counting down my time, ticking off the miles, sweat pouring down my body.
The bad: all of the sudden treadmill goes black. Everything shuts down. Cleaning person has unplugged it while vacuuming. Huge loss of momentum for me. Do I just attract this stuff so I have something to blog about?
The good: Took a ten mile run with Ken (husband) this morning. He has broken his promise to never run further than a 10K and is running a 1/2 with me in August (Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon). Beautiful morning for a run along the roads near the foothills of the Rockies.
The bad: a cyclist is coming towards us on the shoulder, we move over. She's pissed and yells, "You are supposed to run with traffic not against it!!" Okay - am I wrong? I thought it was a safety thing that runners are supposed to run against traffic so they know what's coming. Any insight?
The bad: lost lots of money at the blackjack tables in Vegas this week.
The good: (this is for you L.A. Lakers fans) - Luke Walton sat next to me at the tables. Had no clue who he was until people were stopping for pictures and autographs. Pretty nice guy. A tall drink of water at 6' 8". Yes I think I'm cool. If you're like me and think this is just another LA dude, google him.
The good: took a few short runs (4-5 miles) in my new Sauconys. Like running on air.
The bad: on the ten miler this morning my arch hurt and I got blisters. In all of your expert running opinions, is this due to 1) poor shoe fit 2) just regular breaking in of shoes? Do I need to go back to the Olympian for advice?
