Happy late Mother's Day to me! Hubs was gone for Mother's Day so I asked if I could order myself a little present. Sure, normal people would have gotten a pedicure or new earrings...but I splurged on some Pro Compression calf sleeves (I actually got a really great deal, but they're still more than any person should spend on socks). After struggling with constant soreness, I read that these help in workout recovery and give great support on long runs. Ironically, I have not been sore this last week, dispite the 13+ miles I ran on top of weight training. I just said to Hubs last night, "I need to find a new challenge"...hello new challenge! I went out for a quick 5K run this morning and quickly found that the compression sleeves made my legs work in a whole new way. After a few minutes they were screaming "Why are you doing this to us!", followed by "We'll treat you to a big diet coke if you stop now!". I was so very tempted by them to mosey over to Sonic instead of finishing, but I am not a quitter. By the time I got back home, I was pretty sure I was dead. I collapsed on the floor and Hubs said, "So good run, huh?" and assured the kids that I really was not dying.
