Thursday - 4 tempo miles
Saturday- Zumba with Denise and Susan
Sunday- Zumba with Denise and Susan and 8 mile easy run
Monday I went to Zumba with Susan. I had felt some pain on my right toe, and decided to try different sneakers. Well, that was awful. I wore Brooks Pure Flow 4, and couldn't move. I had read something before that running sneakers are meant to move forward, and Tennis sneakers are meant to have more circular motion. I switched out to my Ryka sneakers and immediately felt the difference. Note to Self- no new shoes to Zumba.
Tuesday - Does anybody remember me whining about parents not wanting to help out in the concession stand at Baseball? Well, Because of the Coach under scheduling people, I had to help out for the entire shift 5:30-8:30. It was supposed to be 8 parents helping, but it was only 4 of us helping.
But, I now know what a Walking Taco is. It sounds disgusting, but it smells delicious. I didn't have one, but really wanted to. And I might *or might not*, have had accidentally stuck my finger in one.
Per Wendy's Suggestion: The walking Taco- A bag of Doritos, topped with taco ground beef, Salsa, shredded taco cheese, lettuce and sour cream.
Thursday, After my son's baseball, I did 4 tempo miles in the local paved track. I ran by the school, where they were having the kids run for their Race For Education event the next day.

On Friday, our office closed at 1:00 pm. It was so exciting, and at the same time very nerve wracking. On the Fridays that I'm at work, I spend the day between doing work and catching up with Blogs, but having less time, I had to focus on getting my work done.

My son's school was having their Race For Education event, which I had also planned to attend. And was glad to know I could go without rushing. I ran around the track with my son and a lot of other kids. I would say that most kids ran at least 4 miles. The kids were amazing at the entire event!
Saturday I was up bright and early for Zumba with Denise and Susan, which they call Masters Zumba, because it's fast paced. And at 1:00 went to Roger's Self Defense Aikido workshop. I didn't participate, only took pictures. Aikido is not my thing.
After we went for coffee and cake.
On Sunday, I slept in for a long time! I woke up at 9:30! It made me sad to miss most of Sunday Morning.
I headed to Zumba again, because right now the Studio has not found a new place to move to. So, right now my zumba days are numbered, and that makes me sad.
After Zumba, we went to Hershey for 8 miles. I forgot my sneakers, and my headphones, so ran in the sneakers that caused one toe nail to fall off. But there were no excuses to be made. This was my longest run without any music or a podcast.
|After the run in the rain, needed a towel to stay warm.|
