I started into the run tonight, and I don't know if it was primarily physical, psychological, or both, but...I just didn't make it. I ran the warm-up mile and then called it quits. In addition to my legs hurting in that weird spot, I apparently strained (?) the tendon that runs through the arch of my right foot. This happened a couple of days ago somehow, and I have been trying to stretch it out and massage it regularly...but it still feels all crappy. So, after running the warm-up mile, I said my goodbyes and headed to the car.
When I got in the car, I sat there for a few minutes and drank my water before noticing a nasty, green, slimy bug going into some sort of convulsions on my finger. Gross. I quickly opened the car door and flung it out into the grass (don't worry, I was still parked!). Suddenly, I felt something cold and wet in my lap. I looked down and realized that my water bottle was open and pouring out all over my crotchal area, which then proceeded to drip down into a pool in my seat.
That's right. It looked like I massively wet myself. I then noticed that something (possible the other half of the nasty green slimy bug???) had died all over my leg. AHHHHHH.
I gave up and drove home immediately. Matt and I took a walk, and now we're watching Jeopardy. We watch Jeopardy every night these days. I just looked down and realized that I still have nasty brown and green bug guts all over my leg. LOVELY. On that note...Happy Tuesday!!! I'm headed to the bathroom to wash whatever this is off my leg.
Oh, and tomorrow, I have a date with Derek, my trainer, at the running store so that he can find me some new shoes. He promised to find something on sale, PLUS I get 10% off of anything in the running store while my training group is ongoing. I'll let you know what happens!
