Hooray for beer!
Relax, I ate a shot blok before I started drinking.
I did a fun run downtown tonight and got a tour of the city from a friend who lived in about a dozen trendy condos there before she settled down in the ‘burbs. I intended on doing a little more than six tonight but she had to get home and I got this weirdy pain in the back of my knee right there at the end, so we figured it was a good time to call it quits.
I’m pretty sure I need some new running shoes. These bad boys have taken me faithfully waaay past 500 miles – more like 1000, probs- so I know the end is nigh.
I went through the same feeling-crappy-legs-don’t-work phase for the first three miles or so before I worked out the kinks and started feeling good. Part of it I know, is needing new shoes, but I think I’m just not a good short-timer. It takes me that long to warm up anymore and I just have to suck it up and realize it’s going to feel better as long as I keep going! (Aside from those just plain awful days you have where every step gets worse.)
I didn’t take my camera tonight, because that is not how I roll (usually), but here are some of the landmarks we hit on our run:
Mass Ave. (source)
Historic Lockerbie (source)
Cultural trail (source)
War memorial stairs!! Woot! (source)
It looks small, but I probably munched on that thing for half an hour!
Tomorrow — track sprints at Butler! Weeeeee!
Seriously, I am way more excited about this than I should be. Especially since I just moaned about how I don’t do short distances. But I’m going to try! And afterwards, well, the Broad Ripple Brew Pup is practically within crawling distance. Just sayin’.
