THis is just a short little post. I did finally manage to drive over to Orlando the other day. I picked up a New Ipod Shuffle! I would have bought it at Wal-Mart but they only had the hot pink color and I really really didn’t want that. The Apple Store only had Orange or Green, so my choice was made. I got the Gold/Orange one. It’s still charging. One thing that seems unusual about this one is that it does not seem to want to let me rearrange the order of the songs. It may also be that it just isn’t fully charged. It is now ready-ish for tomorrows run.
Tomorrow I have the Miracle Miles 15K race. So it’s about 9.3 or so miles. I have been running rather poorly all week mostly due to my schedule and also some rather intense pain in my left hip. I am hoping by taking a good long rest day today that the gams will feel much better on Saturday. I’m going to try a new strategy for Saturday. I’m going to use the carbohydrate gels before I actually need them…once at mile 3 and once again at mile 6. I really do not think I need the 100 calories that much, but the caffeine in them is helpful. We will see how is goes. I’m pleased about one thing which is a wee bit petty…. The girl I work with who runs (and is better than I) is not running the race. I don’t mind being beaten by her, but she can be a bit of a snob about the whole thing.
Ok Will update tomorrow…..
