Gettin' my run on...

Thanks to the lack of tennis today (see previous post), I was able to get a short run in at Stone Mountain. I was officially testing my sofsole inserts. I LOVE THEM but more on that in another post. I have been amiss in my training lately and was getting to the point of starting back at square one with my beloved Hal Higdon's plan. Admittedly, at this point my issue is mental. Well, it was until today. I have really felt off schedule most of this year. Particularly, post the Flying Pig. Mostly, I think time just gets away from me. I have grand plans of doing this or that and just can't manage to fit it all in. I need a day to sit down re-group and plan it all out. Can you tell I am a little Type A. Everything must be planned. The run today was great. I went low-key, nothing overly ambitious, in an attempt to get my mojo back. It worked. Five miles at Stone Mountain felt like nothing. I feel back in the swing. Whew. Disneyland here I come :)

In other news, today is Chasing the Kenyans' one year blogiversary. If you have never stopped by to read her news, today might be a good day. She is giving away GU goodies so you might want to check it out! Happy blogiversary!
