Feeling Good!

After yesterday’s 10 miler I was kind of curious as to how I was going to feel today. Amazingly I felt great.  I don’t feel like I did something out of the ordinary and I may actually log some miles today as well.
Yesterday I met TB at the gym to work shoulders and abs. It felt pretty good. I am hoping all of this strength training is going to pay off in my runningJ.  My body tends to gain muscle fast, so I am getting a little self-conscious about how I am starting to look. I know people love to see muscles, but at a point I think a girl starts looking masculine – and that is NOT what I want. I just want to be lean and jiggle free! No bulk needed- please!
Something else I have been doing a lot lately is playing tennis. Last night we met some people and had a mini tourney. I am getting pretty good at it and love getting out there. It is something different and competitive. Not to mention hanging out with TB is always a great time J. After a while of hitting and running after that ball you really work a sweat!!! So much fun!!
Other BIG NEWS for this runner!!!
I registered for a race this weekend!!! It is the Police Remembrance run. I am running a 10k in remembrance of a K-9 officer who was shot and killed about a year ago (even his dog was killed L). Something I didn’t really like about the race was how we had to choose who we wanted to run for. I feel like you should run the race and then all proceeds get divided out evenly. I chose this guy because I asked a friend who was more familiar with the Pinellas County Police department and he said this one. And not to mention – each officer had a different distance. This one is a 10K!!!
I don’t have a plan. I just want to run and get my race feel back. If I suck I suck – if I do well, then WOOHOO!!!!
 If I had to put a pace down that I would like to beat it is 7:30. I have promised myself that if this doesn’t happen that I will be ok with it and realize that I need to work a little harder to regain my speed.
