Yesterday I spent my afternoon at the pool. Some how I managed to miss the top of each leg, kind of by my inner thigh when I applied sunscreen. I got a little pink. It wasn’t really bothering me…but then I went for a run.
My shorts were rubbing against it, so it was very unpleasant. I cut my 3 mile run short, and stopped after 2.25 miles. I really thought I could make it the last .75 miles, but I couldn’t take the pain anymore and had to stop. Aloe has been my best friend today.
Speaking of best friends, I met with my best friend since 8th grade today…Mert! Mert is a runner too. She actually been my motivation a lot of the time. She is currently training for a triathlon. I’m amazed. I don’t think I could ever do that. I’m not a very good swimmer. She was telling me that the swimming has been the hardest part for her to train. I can believe it! Running and biking can be hard enough (in my opinion) so I don’t even want to toss swimming in the mix. I don’t mind going for a swim every once in awhile, but I’m not going to be using swimming as a training method any time soon.
So Mert and I are running a 5K together. That’s my next race actually. I’m really excited to run with her…even though I’m sure she’ll be much faster than me. She’s been running a lot longer!
