Day 30

Loving the Strands running app.  I completely 100% endorse it to everyone, and also everyone should follow me on  It's like a twitter for physical activity, so addictive.  Today I almost didn't go running because we played capture the flag this afternoon, and that was kind of physical, but then it felt weird not to go, so there I went at 8:30 out the door with my running shoes.  I ended up only doing two and a half miles, though, because it started to get dark and I didn't want to end up running around the park after dark, although the areas I was running it were pretty well-lit and seemed like there were a lot of people around.

I think in a little bit I'm going to try a new route before I get tired of this one.  The good thing about this one, though, is that it's right here close so I don't have to drive anywhere - just walk out the door and get going.

I had a little bit of weird cramping in my left arch the last half mile.  It was weird.  It felt like I stepped on something sharp, but I hadn't, and it's fine now.  No idea what happened there, but I'd be so ticked if I were trying to run a race or something and that happened to me.

Oh, guys, and there's this 5K in July that my roommate suggested to me.   The course is on a lavender farm with lavender in full bloom.  I'm going to see how I feel about it in June, and then decide whether to sign up or not.

I'm over my slump and pumped up again!  All it took was getting off that blasted treadmill!
