            Well the Austin marathon or HM is out of the question. DW has a practice test for her school counselor certification that same weekend. Oh well.

              Lauren- Congrats on the run! Small steps is the best way to go.


              Scotty- I just read your race report, very nice Smile


              Jerry- Busy day for you today! Enjoy your rest day tomorrow.


              N-Bug- Good job on the long run!


              1.5 miles at the park for me today. 1.25 is a lap, and that was previously the longest I had gone. Need to get over the mental part of looping, lol. I also go hit with nausea again about 10 minutes after the run. I think it's the blaring sun, or maybe the kombucha I drank before. I'm quite worried I'll never be able to have a decent run when the sun is out.


                Hey everyone!!


                Kristin, that sounds like a classic anxiety dream, hope your 10k goes much better than that! Smile


                Lauren, yaaaaaaay!!! Big grin



                AFM, 10 miles done with new shoes, ITB started to tighten up just a little right at the end of the run, but no real pain.  I've been stretching, but still need to get a foam roller.  The new shoes definitely helped tho.  I think with continued stretching and then rolling, and not trying to get extra miles out of worn out shoes, I should be fine.


                Hope everyone is doing well!
