If you read my last post, you know why I needed to stop at Fleet Feet ASAP for a new pair of Brooks Adrenalines.

On Saturday, instead of waking up early to run before my tentative morning plans, I opted to turn off my alarm, sleep in, skip my plans, and head out for a run when I was ready. That ended up being around noon, and I was worried it would be hot, but it was beautiful with temps around 70. I didn’t have a plan for distance, I just headed toward the lake. I ended up exploring Northerly Island and running almost 9 miles total, although there were a lot of walk breaks. And run-selfie breaks.

On Sunday, I was supposed to go to a workout at Barry’s Bootcamp, but woke up with a pain in the back of my shoulder. Maybe a pinched nerve? Not sure. I probably needed the rest day anyway. It still a little bit sore today.

  1. Your new shoes are awesome! Sounds like you had a solid week of training minus your neck pain. I haven’t run by Northerly Island in years and your pictures are making me want to again!
