Color Me Surprised

16 Nov

After yesterday’s painful run, I fully expected to wake up to calves that were more sore than I’ve felt in a really long time. Buuut turns out that somewhere in the middle of the night they just perked right up and woke up ready to run. They weren’t sore at all!

Just to recap from yesterday, I ran a little more than 2 miles and wanted to cry out in pain the entire time. It was pretty pitiful. Cue panic about upcoming 10k…

Turkey Trot

And I would have made such a cute turkey…

But today was great! No achy calves, no arches screaming for mercy… everything was perfect. Except for a few weird cramps in my tummy. Felt like side stitches, but spread out across my tummy. They went away after a few miles though, so I’m not worried.

I’m pretty stoked because I ended up running 4.5 miles! Not bad, no? And the miles were right on (12:00 min/mile…) pace.

And by the time I finished I knew I could go another 2 miles. I’m excited! The race is on! Now I just need to figure out some cute turkey costumes…
