This week as been a non-run week. Instead, I've focused on walking. Every day this week I've taken a lunchtime walk around the lake. As of today, I've logged 9.4 miles walking just on my lunchtime. Today, I maxed my lunch and walked a whopping 3.3 miles. One might say I was nuts, out there in the heat of the day (today was 94F with a real feel of 102F), but it's actually quite enjoying to me. I'm a heat addict. I still run a small heater by me at night. Yeah I know..... weird huh?
Running you ask? Well I've definitely had it on my mind. I imagine next week I'll get back to it. I just wanted to clear my mind for a bit after having an orthotic induced case of shin splints. The Pikesville 5K is coming up soon and I've got to get back into the swing of things. It's a decent course and I'm hoping to PR it. This will be my first repeat race so I'm looking forward to blowing my previous time out of the water.
