Exercising my demons

Thursday - August 30

Run
  • 30m
  • 2.50 miles
  • 12m /Mi
9:45pm - After dinner I hopped on the treadmill for another quick run, to try out my other new pair of running shoes.  At first I thought that they might be too narrow in the heel, but once I started running they felt fine.  Now both new pairs seem okay, so I'm going to order Speed Laces for them and retire my old shoes.

10:00am - I'm not sure what I'm going to do for a workout today.  My plan for this week and next is very fluid, as I recover from Cranberry and get ready for another Oly next weekend.  This week I'm also busy with my kids, who start kindegarten tomorrow.

I had hoped to swim some laps this week, but my primary pool (Metrowest YMCA in Framingham) and backup pool (Atkinson Pool in Sudbury) are both closed for their yearly maintenance shutdowns.  But, I found out today that a woman I recently met can get me into this swanky health club in Sudbury, since she works there on the weekends.  I'm thinking that maybe I'll head up there tonight.

7:00pm - After dinner I went to check out the health club where my friend works.  It has a nice, 6-lane 25-yard pool.  Except for a few folks taking scuba lessons in the deep end of one lane, I was the only one there.

Tuesday - August 28

Run
  • 20m
  • 1.72 miles
  • 11m 38s /Mi
11:30am - Today I am working from home, so I took a quick break to jump on the treadmill.  Normally I would want to run outside, but I just got two new pairs of running shoes so I want to check them out (and break them in) inside first, in case I need to send them back.  I also have blisters on both heels from the race on Sunday, so I wanted to see how they felt.  With bandaids and socks on, they were fine.
