Obligatory pictures of cute new pup:
But today I went out for a bit of a jog, and things were definitely not ready to run again. The hip hurt running downhill, and the calf hurt running uphill, so I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say the big hill did me in. Which is bizarre, because yes it's a big hill, but I thought I was in decent shape, and I run a fair number of hills. But - I guess that's the thing about the human body, I find it's often somewhat hard to predict. So I suppose I'll take it easy for a few more days and see how things are feeling. I'm hoping it doesn't take too much longer to feel better, because I'm reallly hoping to run the Myrtle Beach Half-Marathon on Feb. 19. We'll see.
In other unrelated-but-still-athletic news, I'm now on the Board of the Asheville Triathlon Club. I'm co-chair of the events committee, so if anyone has any ideas let me know. We're definitely putting on some tried-and-true favorites, like the Indoor Tri and a transition clinic, but I'd be interested to hear any new ideas. Check out the Tri Club blog to see the current cast of characters.
