Run with Jess hosted the Jelly Bean Virtual Race.
I intended to do this race today. BUT my abscess tooth debacle prevents me from running.
SO instead I will use Sundays walk with my wonderful husband. We came home from church, and the sun was shining, and I wanted to go for a run, but I was yearning for company. I asked my husband, expecting a "NO WAY the race is on". BUT, he surprised me with, 'sure, let me change."
So while he changed, I took some pain pills for my tooth, grabbed a water bottle, and away we went. He didnt ask where we were going, so I didnt volunteer. 2 Hrs and 31 minutes later, we were back home. 9.15 miles total. I was proud of him!! We pulled three very steep hills and was a trouper. I did feel a tab bit guilty during the two miles, when he was feeling it in his legs. I told we need to do this every Sunday!! He gently turned me down, but letting me know that hes sure someone will want to go for a motorcyle ride next week, and the next, and the next. I promised him if he would go along, that we would make it shorter.
6.2 miles in 102 minutes with my husband.
Saturday: MY First day that Im allowed to run post abscess tooth extraction. We did a 5K in 44:56. This was with a group of ladies from the gym. We did run/walk intervals. I felt pretty good. At first I felt some twinges where my tooth was, but after the first interval it was pretty good.
Very very windy out there today, and only 50 degrees. BRR!!
