Oh they are sore today. Yesterday was a frustrating day at work. Without getting into too many boring details - suffice it to say that I was annoyed and ready to go home and blow off some steam. I got a handy new application on my iPhone last week called RunKeeper. So I decided since it was a nice evening I would head out for a run with my big girl Bisa for protection. I thought it might get dark while we were out... But don't worry, I texted the hubby at work to let him know where I was going just in case. Safety first people!
We ran, and ran, and then ran some more. Uphill a lot of the way. It was only about 4.5 miles but that is good for me. I love to run but I'm more of a 5K type of girl. :) It felt awesome and was just what I needed to destress and be a happy balanced woman again.
I was all wired and high on life when we got done so then I steamed the carpet in the living room. Then I showered and ate a healthy dinner of egg whites and a corn tortilla. And then I organized about 1/2 of the 1,000 pictures I got back from SnapFish this week. I ran out of room and need to buy more albums or else I would have kept going. This has become a big project that I put off for too long. I just finished 2008 so I that shows you just how long it's been put off... I have a long way to go!
But this was my mistake: I sat for about 2 hours after my run doing the pictures and when I finally got up to go to bed I realized I was going to be sore! 2 Ibuprofin and a good night of sleep helped but my legs are tired today.
And I gained a pound after all that work? How is that even fair? :)
