So I've been a little MIA lately. Let me give a recap of last week before getting into results of my run tonight.
Ok so last week - husband had to work over the weekend so it ruined our regular routine, plus it did a lot of this
So, me and my BFF went and shopped and saw this
It was funny, entertaining, a good movie to see when the weather is blah. It has some great parts and it has Justin Timberlake in it. I love him in movies but come on JT new cd / tour please!
So after movies and shopping, I went here for the 1st time.... the Laundromat
So what usually happens on the weekend is me and B go to his parents, hang out, and also do our laundry there. We do have a washer/dryer BUT its a combo unit. ITS HORRIBLE! It sounds great- put your laundry in, and once it washes it starts to dry. What you find out afterwards is that its tiny so your loads have to be small and to do 1 load takes around 3 hours. So I decided to go to the laudromat near by and it wasnt a bad experience and I kinda LOVED the fact that you can use a super huge washer then dryer and get it all done at once. LOL
Ok so now onto Run # 68.
So this weekend we are in our hometown, visiting his parents.
Some fun facts about Apopka include
- Apopka is an indian word meaning "Potato eating place" (and I hate potatos)
- Apopka is the Indoor foliage capital of the world
- The mayor, John Land, is the longest serving mayor in the state & USA
It was a pretty straight run - being in Apopka, there are more 'hills' than in downtown orlando so that was tough. I decided to be 'crazy' and just wear shorts and a sports bra and I had lots of honks. I do not like people honking at me, so I learned that I need to wear a shirt. Though with it being hot, it was nice not fighting with a shirt. Sorry peeps no pics.
Mentally this was tough - I wanted to hit 2.5 before turning around but I couldnt do it. So on the way back I'd run into some neighbordhoods down a few driveways then back up which helped because it felt like I was accomplishing something.
So when we got home, and getting showers, I felt it. A stinging pain and through confirmation Brett says I chaffed. OMG. NEVER had this before. Not cool. Like the back of my armpits. Seriously - how do I chafe my armpits??? Guess I'll be investing in some body glide soon.
Tell me - have you had chafing when you run? Any remedies to make it STOP hurting?
So here it is...another distance Personal Record, so I had to post my PR badge for the celebration
