It has been 2 weeks since the last time I ran.  I stopped running because I had pain in my hip, thigh, and knee.  It isn’t an injury but just tight muscles.  I was told that I could run 2-3 times I week for about 30 minutes.  I decided to just take time off and not run at all.  Oh my, I think I became a whole different person!  I miss running!   I miss the energy from a post run.  I miss the sweat on my face (yeah, it sounds gross) letting me know that I was getting a good workout.  I miss the numbers increasing on my training widget (still at 71 miles).  That is all about to change when I hit the gym on Tuesday.  I am excited and looking forward to it!!!

This Friday I signed up for 2 more races.  I have yet to decide if I want to do the Wisconsin Marathon on May 7 or the Chicagoland Spring Marathon on May 15.  I have heard good things about the one in Wisconsin but don’t feel like making the drive home after a marathon.  But the one on the 15th is a new marathon so I don’t know how many people will be there and/or what to expect.  Plus the latter one gives me an extra week to train/taper.  Well, whatever I decide to do I need to make a decision soon so that I can revise my training plan.

By the way, Princess is still hanging in there.  It makes me happy but also sad.
