Taking It Easy

I am still feeling a little achy in my adductor and calves.  I need to go get those shoes.  I hate driving into the city, though, for no other reason.  I need to suck it up and get out there or my body is going to pay the price.  Likely, I will be getting the exact same shoes since the same version is still available (I *heart* the Asics Gel-Nimbus.  I have tried on other shoes, and they just don't feel like home.) 

While we're on the topic of shoes, I am debating what shoes to wear for my race Saturday.  I am doing one of those crazy mud-slinging obstacle courses.

I cannot wait, but I'm stuck on what shoes to wear.  I don't want my feet to fall apart (if I wore my really old Nikes), but I'm not sure I'm up for ruining a pair of my Asics either.  The good thing is there is a shoe collection afterwards from Green Sneakers - and the best news, they take muddy sneakers!!!  So I plan to share whatever I run in.  ;-)

Anyhow, I got in my group run yesterday of 4.5 miles at a slightly quicker pace than normal.  Since I was still feeling the ache, I skipped my normal bodyworks class.  Bad, bad, bad.  I'm supposed to be cross-training.  Shame on me.  And this week I'm being good and taking Wednesday and Sunday off like I'm supposed to.  I didn't last week, and I could feel the difference - not in a good way.
