So you know you're a runner when you have to give a urine sample at the doctor's office and you feel really proud when the nurse tells you it's the clearest urine she's seen lately. (Yep, I went there. I'm talking about my urine.) Don't tell me you fellow runners don't all keep an eye on things each time you go to the restroom. I find it's hard to keep ahead sometimes on the hydration, so I'm always pleased with myself when I know I'm doing a good job.
Granted, I'm still not running a ton. I'm managing to get a good sweat going most days of the week since I'm using the Shred DVD pretty regularly. I still only got 2 runs in last week even though I was aiming to bump it up to three. I'm trying again this week and started today with a 25 minute run in which I covered 2.5 miles. I was pretty pleased. It's getting a little easier each time I run. I've got 10-12 more scheduled runs on the post-injury plan I'm following, so before I know it I should be ready to start gradually building mileage instead of running by time.
I still owe you more pictures of the rest of the work I did on my race scrapbook. I'll get those up on here soon!
