30 Days of Running – Day 8…

Writing this one a day late, things are really starting to get busy up here in Tahoe.  So much to do to pull the wedding together and now people are starting to show up fast and furious!

We did manage to sneak away for a bit yesterday to get a run in.  We did the same 3 mile loop around the casinos and back to the hotel.  This time it was mid-day and warm (but still way more pleasant than running in Phoenix).  I’m starting to feel a little better on the hills and finishing strong.

Today’s Run…

Left the hotel at 3:24 PM.

Weather was a warm 75 degrees.  Ran on pavement.

Total run was 3 miles in 29 minutes 30 seconds.  Felt good and finished strong.

My foot is feeling much better today!  YAY!

 

30 Days of Running – Day 7…

This morning my foot was killing me!  This is a bunch of crap, it’s SO sore.

Best thing for it?  A run…sure, why not!

I have to get the run in right?  So let’s do this thing.  We picked a route that dropped down the road from the hotel to the lake, then along the lake for a bit before curving back up the hill and across the border in to Nevada.  The hill was rough, especially at about 6,500 ft, but Merelyn and I busted it out.

It was actually a pretty nice run once I got used to running with the pain in my foot.  Ouch.

Morning run at lake Tahoe...

Today’s Run…

Left the hotel at 8:24 AM.

Weather was a nice, chilly 40 degrees.  Ran on pavement.

Total run was 3.05 miles in 33 minutes.  Felt good and finished strong, despite the fighting the thin air.

I really want my foot to stop hurting!  Stupid foot!

Followed the run with a nice protein shake.
