Today was supposed to be a rest day but I thought i had been resting enough-like 11 weeks. I decided I would do three miles at least. I made it 3.5. Always have to remember to push through those first yucky two miles and things get better. My knee is good, ITB is good. I had a weird pain in between my shoulder blades. I tried alternating tapping of my fingers to my thumbs to see if I was clenching my fists or running tense. It seemed to help a little. I am icing my knee as a precaution.

I used my new garmin. I am still getting used to the bells and whistles but really glad I got it. I also ran with out my IPOD tonight. I love this time of the year when you can hear kids playing outside, softball and baseball games/practices, families fishing, dogs barking, and other sounds of summer. And of course I listened carefully for my lap beep to signal that I could walk.

Another day with just one dt. soda. Anyone think the soda thing matters? I was off of them for a while but...

Better get up and get in the shower. I will close with a Runner's World quote: "You don't need a reason, you just need a road. Enjoy the run."

Good job on the run. And I'm glad you're liking the Garmin. I still haven't used my to it's potential, but it is SO MUCH more accurate than my nike+.

Keep it up.
