This week I decided to document my lunch break at work. I try to go for a run a couple of days a week on my lunch break. Yes, it means I am kind of nasty the rest of the day, but I have come to terms with it. I will probably start running in the evenings again once it gets warmer and isn't dark so early.
I officially start my half marathon training this week. I have been training for my training the last month or so. I was having some foot issues so I went to a specialty running store and bought some shoes. I desperately needed new shoes. The new shoes felt great and my foot issues seemed to be better. I ran my longest run- 5.8 miles. Then my hip started killing me. Man, oh man. I really feel old. I took about a week off from running. It started feeling better, but after today's run it is very sore again. Ughhh.
Anyway back to my lunch break. At 11:30 I changed clothes, stretched, and got all ready for my run.
I felt pretty good during my run. My hip was hurting, but not too bad. I ran 3 miles in just under 30 minutes. I headed back to the office, drank some water, and cooled off a bit. I took a couple of calls. Then changed back into my work clothes.
I grabbed some homemade gatorade, some ice for my hip, and my lunch.
I ate my lunch while I worked. Exciting stuff, huh?
