1. I've done my last couple runs at the indoor track.
Yesterday evening, when I signed in, the lady said "okay, I'll mark you down as walking". I really wanted to correct her and tell her that I wasn't walking. I was running. I decided it wasn't worth it. I've noticed that the majority of the people on the track are just walking, so I suppose the assumption is natural. At $2 a time, or 12 runs for $20, I don't think I'll ever buy a treadmill. I much prefer running outside, so I only intend to do the track when I really need to.
2. My son is planning on becoming a personal trainer.
When I was running with the kids on Tuesday, I had to take walk breaks every few minutes. (Running with a chariot is very challenging.) Spud would ask me why we were going slower. When I told him I was out of breath, he told me to take a drink of my water. Then: "You drink your water mommy? Now you have energy; now we can go FAST again!"
3. I've been getting a bleeding toe. (non-runners, you may just want to skip this.)
My toes are shaped funny in a permanently pushed together configuration. (perhaps from years of wearing slightly too small shoes?) When I run, one of my toenails has started cutting into the toe next to it, even if I trim the toenail the day before. I think I'm just going to have to wrap the injured toe in bandaids to keep it from happening.
