Busy week ramblings

I got a 5 mile run in yesterday and another 5 today. Both during lunch. I really wanted to a t least 7 today, but din't have the time. This week we got a visit from some big wigs from our company. More specifically, our dept. new bosses. So I have been in and out of meetings all week and I didn't want to disappear for long during lunch. Luckily tomorrow is their last day. Maybe I can get a good long run in tomorrow or even Friday.

My ankle has been feeling OK. Still the same actually, but at least not worse. But now my knee (same leg) started aching today. I swear if it's not one thing it's another. But it always has been something ever since I started running. Once my left hip ached for like two weeks, but then it went away. Then it was my right one weeks later. Another time it was my left calf that was bothering me..... Luckily all these aches just went away on there own. Hoping these will do the same.

From reading other blogs, I can see that this heat has been affecting a lot of people. Be careful and stay cool my friends. Even when not running :)

-- 4 days 'til Providence.

With only four days to Providence, you will be fine with just five miles. Your runs in the last week before a race are really meant to keep you loose and will not help you do any better on race day.

Thanks for the advise. I'm a little bit hard headed and always want to push myself to do more :)
