LSU wasn't playing at home this weekend so we had some free time. Friday night Dean boiled shrimp & they were delicious. I'd much rather have boiled shrimp than crawfish.
After working in the yard Saturday I did an arm workout which has left my arms TIRED! I guess that's the sign of a good workout. Between that & the yard work it made for a really good Sat. afternoon nap. We had dinner at Caliente.So good! It was actually my only "bad" meal of the weekend & I didn't even overdo it on chips & salsa. That rarely happens.
Sunday morning was our usual Mass, grocery shopping routine. When we got home I did an ab workout. It was hard but I didn't go crazy because I knew I would be running later. I ended up falling asleep on the sofa Sunday afternoon too. When I woke up it was time to get ready for the race.
PRO Compression! Cute huh? There was a Facebook contest. I have several pair that I've bought from them & I love them. They have cute colors & always have some sort of holiday sock. They even have the short "sport" socks that are compression. I always wear those on my long runs. Right now PRO Compression has a special - 40% off if you use the code SPRING. They didn't pay me to say that. (I wish). I really love the socks & I'm always looking for a deal.
I was worried about the weather. It was in the upper 60's when we started. I generally do much better when it's cooler than that but surprisingly I didn't sweat a lot. There was a breeze & the occasional drizzle.
This was the first time I've ran in a month. My foot felt really good last week. It bothered me during the run & it's bothering me today but it's not awful. I haven't decided if I'll continue to rest it or start doing some short runs. We'll see. The race was 3.17 mi. & I finished in 31.43 which is a 5K PR for me. I wasn't expecting that at all. I keep thinking if I would've been able to run the last month I may have done it in less than 30 minutes. It was a true 3.17 too. At least my watch said so.
After the race there was food & drinks as usual.
