I've been running since, the last few weeks in March? I don't remember when exactly. I remember starting out and there was a lot of pain, dates on the other hand....not so much. I made a goal, way back when, to run 10 miles in 1 week. I've yet to hit that goal. It's not that I can't, it's that I just haven't. I've had a few days where I ran 2 miles in the morning and then 2 at night, but then go the next day without running at all. So, it's been a little sporadic.

Yesterday I ran 2 miles and it felt easy. So, since that started my week off...I was feeling really good and thought tonight I'd run 3 miles. This would have been my first attempt at 3 miles and...I'll have to make that attempt another day. For some reason, unbeknownst to me, I was barely able to run 1.25miles. I pushed and pushed, but finally had to just stop. I don't know what happened, but it feels like I broke a bone or something, either that or my muscle cramped up so hard that I couldn't bear it any longer. I've pushed through pain before, but this pain was something new. It didn't feel right. I barely made it out of the gym without hobbling like a ninnie, which meant I just had to walk very, very slowly.

So, we'll see what tomorrow brings. I think I'll take the day off. LOL

Oh, and what is up with Oregon spring weather? Holy buckets! The kids got to play outside in the sprinkler today...and they weren't even cold! I know! Bizarre! I just don't know what to make of it. I'm lovin' it though...I played in the water, too. :)

That's great! I really hate running, but I do like my elliptical!

Ouch! Maybe you should get that checked out by a doctor? Don't want to hurt yourself any further :(
