Everything hurt this morning. Especially my hips (bottoms of squats, ow) and my arches (not sure why that is, but it’s been going on for a week). Now, those are two areas that are, you know, kind of critical for running. And this morning before I went to the gym I had talked myself out of it– it’s too hot, I feel awful, the treadmill is boring, everything hurts, I’ll just do something else.
And naturally once I got there I hopped on the treadmill and ground out 3 miles. Does that make any sense? Not really. But 37 minutes my hips were still sore, but I had more mileage in the hopper too. (I wore my fancy orthotic flipflops to work, maybe that will help my arches?)
One of my fellow gym-goers had turned the TV to the Colbert Report and I spent most of my run cracking up at it. I need to check and see if that’s on every weekday at that time!
