Running in a new gear!


7-8 am: Leg workout @ gym
7-8:30 pm: Tennis clinic
8:45 - 9:15 3 mile run

OK, I am pretty excited. Last night after tennis, at dusk, I had a burning desire to run the BCC loop. Off I went, finally, I accelerated out of the granny gear, and I was actually running! It felt so wonderful and amazing to kick it up a notch and just go. Along the way I found my missing wheel cover (!!) and have to go back for it today, although it's broken, but I don't want to leave it sitting in the grass.

Today I am definitely sore and tired and will not do any running today. I may swim some, weather permitting, then we have WTA tennis tonight.

Stay strong Sharon and Michelle!

ADDENDUM: I did swim - at least a half a mile, probably more because I kept losing count! Tennis went much better. I think in some ways that swimming beforehand calms me and keeps me from getting too excited. I was more consistent, hit some good shots, and had a dependable serve. My goal now is to start getting more aggressive at the net - poaching and going for things rather than relying so much on my partner to get things I should be getting.
