3 miles: Running (~33.00)
It`s National Running Day today, so that`s what I am dedicating my run to, today. My plan was to do three miles and that`s exactly what I did. I ran on the roads around my neighborhood today, a triple loop around three streets. Since I live on the hilly side of this city (Pest, the other side is completely flat, whereas Buda is quite hilly) my run took me up one level of streets first, then slowly down with a relatively steep hill towards the end and then finally all the way back up to the beginning.
I stashed my Blood Orange Powerade drink in front of our house so that I could take a zip whenever I came by. The concept worked out fine until I had to stop and stretch because suddenly my calves felt a lot tighter towards the second half of the second loop. I stretched and felt better, so I decided to continue the run. At home I spent a good 15 minutes icing my calves and now I have them elevated on the couch.
Enjoying the sun with a towel full of ice cubes on my calves.
I started a few days ago to keep three trays of ice in my freezer so that I have some at all times. I wish we had a fancier fridge that would make ice cubes whenever I need them, but it`s working fine now so I won`t complain.
