6 mile run
As I tossed and turned this morning in bed, I opened my eyes and I was suddenly filled with a burst of energy. I couldn't tell what time it was since I have blackout shades in my room, so I got up on my feet and grabbed my cell phone. As I turn it on, I realized it was 3 o'clock in the morning! What?! This can't be? What am I supposed to do now? Go for a run? I would have probably gone for a run, but I decided to stay in bed and rest my feet.
Oh, what anxiety I am feeling! I feel like a caged animal that wants to run free! Yes, this is typically how I feel before a big race. The good news is that the pent up energy will help me run during the race, but the bad news is that I NEED to rest! Anywho, as I laid in bed with eyes wide open until 6:00 am, I finally got up and went for a slow 6 mile run. The run felt nice because I released some tension and energy, but my body begged for more.
After my run, I went to my usual nail salon venue and I got a much needed pedicure and manicure. My toenails desperately needed some help! Like always, I had an ingrown toenail on my right toe.
Ugh, not fun!
I also got a manicure...
"Dives in Head First" Whatever that means. Hey, that's the color of the nail polish!
After my rendez vous with Marion my nail tech, I went home and got a massage and body alignment. Ahhhh!
Jodie Espinet was AMAZING! She thoroughly massaged my legs, back and neck and she aligned my hips. It was heavenly.
Later, I received a text message from my friend Kelley and she was super stoked to let me know that this is how the weather in Boston will be during the weekend:
Can't complain about that =)
To end my day, I received this package from FootWorks:
My sponsors sent me this nice gift to get me ready for the next race. Whatup?
Oh, I also wanted to mention that my weight loss story was featured on the Walk Jog Run blog yesterday. Check it out... Enjoy =)
Happy Runnings Friends!
How was your Friday?
