Another nice day in Portland! It’s not supposed to last so I’m taking advantage of the almost 70 degree day! Since it’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve run the waterfront, I’m pretty excited. Not only that, I don’t have to wear a jacket.
Last night I tried out my new Foam Roller for the first time. I have to admit, it was kind of hard at first. My balance isn’t the best. However, it felt really good! I’m going to try and do the roller every night.
I wore my t-shirt from the Shamrock Run (for the first time!). It was great. It fit well and was cool enough to run in. I stretched for a few minutes and headed out. The temperature was perfect. Everyone else had the same idea and the Esplanade was pretty crowded!
My run was okay. I started out strong. I felt strong, I felt fast, I had no pain. I even JUST missed the bridge going up! Lucky me!
Towards the end of my run, however, I started to feel lethargic. It was so crowded that I kept getting interrupted because people don’t know how to share the waterfront. Gabby Office Buddies who walk at lunch (which is a great thing) tend to walk 4 or 5 wide–which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to get around them. Grrr. It really screwed up my momentum.
After my run, I showered and ate my Indian Food from Trader Joe’s. Chicken Tikka Masala. YUM! 300 calories.
