You TAKE THAT, Detroit!!
Yes, my beloved Twins FINALLY sent a BEATING to Detroit today after sustain a 0-11 record against them this year. Way to go, Twins!! Anyway, well it's DAY 6 for Operation: Husband SICK! and yes, he's STILL sick. He's coughing up mucus and crap - especially at 4:30 a.m. when I am trying to sleep. I was able to crawl out of bed at 9:15 this morning to get ready for a run. The weather was WONDERFUL this morning. I felt like I was rushed to get out for a run. The breeze from the lake made it more enjoyable. I had some shin splints and slight IT band today - UGH! - but was able to push through them and rewarded my legs with ice and LOTS of stretching when I got home. I did not care about speed today because I have one 5K under my belt and another one coming up on Saturday. After my run, I made a trip to Marathon Sports, on the advise of Dani. I wished I went there sooner. They had the Gu that I have been looking, but did not have my IB band wrap that I had been looking for. Pooh! Plus I was able to get everything with a 20% discount because I am associated with TNT. **grin** Since I did not find my IB band wrap, I made a nice trip to the Running store, who I KNEW had what I was looking for. I was able to find it - with $2.00 LESS than everyone else - and the LOST flavors of Sport Beans ***BIG grin***, Berry Blue and Fruit Punch. When I was heading home, I tried the Berry Blue. VERY GOOD!! I was reading the package for my IT band and the causes of ITBS. I have TWO of the BIGGIE causes: Overpronation and Leg Length Discrpepency (YUP!). It hit it RIGHT on the ringer. I hope the wrap helps on Saturday when I do my next 5K. Tommorow's going to early cross-training. Thursday and Friday are up in the air right now - looking like a rest day - maybe! BTW, before I forget, I got a VERY nice $10 gift certificate from a neighborhood Uptown bistro in my goodie bag. The best goodie I have EVER seen. Today's Work-out 3 mi run 34:16 11:25/mile
