I'm pleased that I was able to dry out my shoes yesterday because the sun came out. As I'm going back to these shoes and doing my runs, the achiness is fading and the running is getting easier. I should have changed a couple of weeks ago but that's not a big deal. Bodies heal.
After the usual pack pint run last night, I got my burger without a bun. It was a mess all over me but delicious. The crunch was fantastic. I'll order it again for sure!
This mornings taper run was speedy! 12 minute miles! My next run will be the half on Sunday. I learned a couple of things this week. 1- elite athletes do a shakeout the day before the race to ensure their body is in peak performance. 2- apparently chafing doesn't come from being fat. It's just how my skin handles the runs. I will need to explore options to solve this next summer and then I'll run in shorts and tank tops. All this summer I've been in shirts and capris because that is one solution to chafing. There must be a better option.
