After goopin' up our tires I went on a short ride with the kids.
There she is. What do you think I should name her? Or do they only name the fancy bikes?
I love how the early morning air makes me want to get up and go for a run or ride. I need to find a safe route to ride. (Pedestrians get hit quite often around here. Or mugged, or jumped for their bike. Maybe I'll just have to break the rules and ride on the high school track. ;-)
Yesterday's "ride" ended shortly after we started because Kate was hot and for some reason Daniel's tires went flat again.. so while they ate dinner I ran on the treadmill. I have been foam rolling and icing everyday, multiple times a day and I'm reaping the benefits. I was able to run two whole miles non stop unit some pain showed up! TWO whole miles! I'm so happy about that!
Update on my eye/headaches:
Our insurance FINALLY approved a brain and orbit MRI! It's scheduled for this coming Tuesday with a follow up on Friday with my neurologist. I'll finally get some answers! The right side of my head and my right eye hurt pretty bad while running yesterday so today I'm going to take it easy and just stretch and foam roll.
On a lighter note: I signed up to volunteer at the finish line of a local half marathon. I got a quick response from the race coordinator (assuming that's her role) and she asked me if I would like to be the Pacer Host. I would hand out all the pacers packets and signs at the start then at the finish I would help them with drinks and food. I told her I would love to do that! Its not until June 8th. I was really impressed with her timely response and with how the website is displayed. It seems very well planned and organized so far! Maybe next year I'll be able to run the half!
Enjoy your Thursday everyone!!
