Took Wednesday off fitness (except for the ab work) because I could barely move. I am more out-of-shape than I’m willing to admit.
On Thursday, I got up and ran before work. Since it rained torrentially the night before, the trail was wet and muddy. Again, I took it easy. By the end the marathon-ruining knee was aching – but the other knee was fine! Running is weird.
I caved and bought the Yurbud race case at lunch on Wednesday and took it out for the first time this morning. I like it. It makes the phone easy to access and was handy to have when I *gulp* took some photos and timed my post-run stretching. I think I’m only going to use it for outdoor workouts and runs less than 10k, though. Being off balance and having a hunk of plastic attached to my hand could potentially get annoying on the long runs. But for now, I see it being a useful fitness tool.
Adding two new goals this week: Working out Friday morning to up my morning workout totals this week to 4. (I love summer and all its daylight). And…I’m going to bust out my skipping rope.

Just catching up on your blog. Good for you for getting ready for another marathon training cycle! Four weeks after the Ottawa Marathon I ran the Vancouver Half Marathon and was reminded that the half is really my favourite distance. One day I’ll try that marathon thing again….but I think I will wait a while 😉
Best of luck and I’ll be reading to see how it is going. Maybe you will give me inspiration to try again sooner rather than later!
You’re insane, haha! I’m glad you had a good race! So important! Congratulations!
I think I’ll be back to blogging more regularly once I have a training schedule to stick to. Maybe. I was inconsistent during Ottawa. Thanks for the well wishes!
