This morning was my last run of Summer Break...BOO! Man, it went by extremely fast! Compared to Monday's run, this run was like getting slapped in the face with a soaking wet, hot towel! It was so muggy outside...probably the muggiest all Summer! "Coach Ruthie" & I ran together. I tested out my new "jumper's knee strap" today...I turned it to the side over my fibular head...didn't feel any discomfort until around 2.25 miles...so I'm able to go a little further each time before feeling anything.
I tried a steeper decline & hill...first one since my ITBS injury. I didn't notice any discomfort (this was before reaching 2.25 miles). I made it about 3.25 miles before having to take a brief walk break...then made it to 4.1 & thought I was headed back home, while "Coach Ruthie" continued to complete her 6 mile run. I briefly walked again, then thought I'd see what I could do before pain. I made it 5 miles! YAY! Now tomorrow I may not be saying YAY. Maybe the "jumper's knee" strap turned to the side worked.

By the end of my run, I was soaking wet...felt like I had jumped in the pool with all my clothes on! I can't wait for cooler, Fall temps!
This evening I'm headed to the gym for some yoga. I need to bring some calm before THE STORM! THE STORM being back to work tomorrow...SIGH! I can't wait to use my new yoga mat again...it definitely made me smile!
A recent find at Ross Dress for Less...I couldn't resist the birds!
Summer Break went by so fast & I feel like I was just starting to enjoy it since I'm getting back to running. Oh well...see you next Summer, Summer Break!
