i am not sure what has gotten into me (well, there was that slight funk again last week), but i have been a bit of a running machine lately.
i accidentally ran 16.7km on saturday afternoon this past weekend. it was an accident because i only intended on running 14km, but took a wrong turn and wasn't exactly going to turn around after running 8km, so just kept going. it was awesome. the best part of it was that it was my muscles that were screaming and not my lungs during the tough bits of the run, meaning that my lungs are well accustomed to the altitude, dryness, and aerobic activity.
what makes me so impressed with myself is that i ran alone and didn't plan on it, just sort of did it. i have never been a very self-motivated runner, no matter what and how i have tried, so this was quite a feat.
and last night i ran 8km, a nice, easy 8km at that.
i am on a running roll. let's hope the running continues, but the funks stop.
and does anyone know any treatments for bruised toes? is this an indicator that i need new shoes? or a new pair of feet? ouch.
