A new month and a new set of goals. Some of my goals for July are essentially “take it easy and try something new” type goals. I want to enjoy the summer at a relaxed pace.
1. Heal! Be 100%.
2. Make Sun Tea.
3. Train for Hood to Coast.
4. Have a picnic.
5. Try Trail running for the first time.
The last two nights Michael has been kind enough to massage my injury a little. He pressed into the spots that caused me pain and we both agreed that it feels more like a knot in my muscle. It’s really bizarre!
I bought trail running shoes back in February when we had that deceptively warm few weeks. Then of course, the rain came and didn’t leave for 5 months…So I haven’t have a chance to try my new shoes out. There are a bunch of trails in Washington Park and my hope is that by the end of the July I will be healed enough to go attempt trail running for the first time. I will take a buddy with me, be careful, and will also bring my Runner’s Pepper Spray with me. Safety first!
Who has a long weekend? Anyone doing anything fun? I hope to go for a short run on the track tomorrow morning. Then the rest of the weekend is up in the air!
