finally, a run

Should have run yesterday, but a late start, a hectic time at work, and, to be honest, forgetting my iPod, I skipped it. Which is stupid, I know, but that's where I am right now.

So I came home after work and rode grouchily in the basement for 45 minutes. Rowr. I guess that makes two rides this week. Better than nothing, but still.

Today I was determined to go to the gym and run; so much so that I slipped out of work a little early to make sure I did. I walked for 5 minutes and ran for 45, amassing 5.03 miles along the way. I'm still very far behind my goal pace, but at least I got a small chunk of miles in today.

Felt good during the run, kept my breathing pretty easy (2 steps in, 3 steps out). The new shoes make my arches feel a little tender... not sore, but I'm more aware of them. There's a tiny bit of rubbing, but not enough to cause a blister or a hotspot. I guess wearing arch-supporting insoles is bound to make my arches a little sensitive.

On Sunday we're going to run the "Love 'em or Leave 'em" run around Green Lake; I must admit I was seduced by the very styley t-shirt. I'd like to do more miles that day (it's just a 5K), but we'll see how the weather makes me feel.
