Angry Quad

Since we spoke last, I did end up getting in my 9 miler and it went well:)  I felt good and didn’t even fuel.  I ran to a park 4.5 miles away, drank out of the water fountain for hydration and headed back home.  The pace was pretty good although it would be nice to be back to my fast pace of 2 years ago, but I’m working on it;)

Sadly my 7 miler didn’t go as well yesterday:(  Don’t you hate it when you have a good run and then have one that is slower, shorter, and waaaay harder?!  Ugh!  Oh well, it happens.  The next one will be better:)  Unfortunately, my left quad is not very happy with me after my run yesterday.  Not sure what I did, but I will keep an eye on it and take it easy in the hopes it will feel better by tomorrow.  I’m planning for a 5 miler and would really like to get it in without injury.

In other news, my son has been doing well in his track meets.  Here is a video of his 1st place finish in the 100m.

He had a track meet yesterday and came in 2nd in the 100m.  I have given up on trying to get a good video of his races.  The above video was taken by my husband;)

The weather here in WA is slowly getting better and better.  After a hail/thunder/lightening storm on Tuesday, we are looking at sunny and 70’s for the rest of the week!  Yay!

How is your weather looking?  Ready for summer?  Any races on the calendar?

Have a great day and happy running!
