And here is the post I promised you this morning! Today has been a crazy day. Yesterday it rained. IT RAINED. I absolutely positively love rain. It washed a lot of the snow away. Yay! But, it brought in a fog that is still here. I am very surprised by how much has stayed for so long. In fact, we had a two hour delay today because of the fog. Usually when that happens, the fog is gone by the time we go to school. It is still here after lunch! I love it though. It is very cozy. I even opened my window last night. The weather is perfect right now: rainy, cool, not snowing.
Yesterday, I really wanted to get outside and run. It was raining, but I decided to run anyway. I do love to run in the rain, again…I love anything in the rain. In my opinion, running on a treadmill is so much easier than running outside. I got tired much quicker than I did on the treadmill a few days ago. I didn’t know how long I wanted to run so I did a quick warm-up, stretched, and was on my way. I didn’t last long. By the time I got out there, the fog was thick (I could see though) but it was not really raining. It made it really hard to ‘run breath’. Does anyone know what I am talking about? Ha, ha. Maybe I just made that term up. I really like this weather though and wanted to stay out longer, but I went back home. Then my dog, Coal, decided he wanted to go with me. He stared at me with those almond brown eyes and wagged his tail hopefully. I gave in. I took him out with me to go for another run. He loved it:)
Question for you all: what do you do about shin splint? I have them. 🙂 I have gotten them before so I am almost completely sure that this is what I have, but I never know what to do about them. Do I just have to let them heal? Am I supposed to not run until they do?
Yesterday was my mom’s birthday! Happy birthday!!! Last night, my mom and sister and I went to a doTerra essential oils class at one of our friend’s house (I babysit for them a lot). It was really fun. We got to smell a lot of oil- we all felt really good afterwards:)- and eat some yummy brownies. She put wild orange oil in one batch, lavender in another, and peppermint in the last one. She soaked apple slices in water that had a few drops OnGuard oil in it. At first, I didn’t want to try the apples, but I really like them now.
I got a sample of OnGuard toothpaste too. Side track here…OnGuard oil is an oil that builds the immune system and protects against getting sick. And back on track…I thought it sounded really gross. I don’t like the smell of the oil by itself. But when the hostess said that it whitens teeth, I was all on board:) I tried it this morning, and it isn’t bad. I am waiting to see if it will whiten my teeth too!
Hopefully i can write a post of the last several days of the 30 day challenge soon. And that is about it! I don’t have much else to catch up on with you. Have a great rest of the day.
Question: Do you like running on the treadmill or outside better?
