|hard to see, looks like it's still there, but it's not. man, feet are gross.|
This little issue makes me nervous about running though. I'm not worried about losing more nails. Now that I've done that and realize it's not a big deal and doesn't really hurt, I'm not too concerned. It's the actual pressure of my shoes and socks on the exposed nail bed that I'm worried about. I guess I'll just go with it and see what happens. I hope this doesn't stall my training...
I am pushing my schedule over a day, since I did those four miles yesterday. I was kind of sore this morning, though not as sore as I'd anticipated. My body must be finally getting used to something. Anyway, today I decided to do my version of a speed run on the treadmill. I just did one mile and I wanted to see how fast I could do it. Of course, I did this backwards. I started out strong and fast and ended pretty sloppy and slow. :/ I did it under 12 minutes, but I was hoping for under 11. I'm going to keep doing this from time to time on my rest days, just to see if I can increase my speed. I still have a goal for a 35 minute 5k race and I'm getting closer. Ideally I'd like to shoot for 30 minutes, but I'm just not seeing it with my slow pace. But I'm just going to keep working on it. :)
I wanted to mention a couple of giveaways that you should check out. I read these blogs daily, so you should to
Bethi at Disney Mommi is giving away an SPIbelt to one very lucky reader. It's super cute and very useful! :)
