2. Fall is upon us. I would personally like to thank all the people who wished fall would come so they can wear sweaters and boots (sarcasm). Hope you enjoy the drowned rat look I have been sporting. I really need to invest in some rubber boots as I would definitely get a lot of wear out of them and I would be less wet arriving at work.

3. I am back on the pathways!! After close to 10 days off (not really intentionally), I went for my first run last night, in the rain. We did a 5.5K loop and I didn’t stop once for a walk break!! Normally this wouldn’t be a big feat but with the super hot weather we had been having, I was taking some walk breaks even during my short runs to cool down and keep my HR in check. Not last night! I still wasn’t super speedy, but I am happy with my run. I had some great company- the half marathon group did speed training in the day before so they were hurtin’.
My legs (quads & ITB) hurt a bit after, and I had to roll my legs after as I had some tightness around my knees. I have never had this before (except maybe at the very end of a HM) so I want to make sure I take care of it ASAP. Don’t need any ITB issues thankyouverymuch!!
The other good news is that my Garmin doesn’t seem to have any ill-effects from Monday night’s psycho-ness! Huge sigh of relief!
