BUT...Friday J got home and I decided to take a 2 mile run around the neighborhood. It wasn't too horribly bad, but it was COLD!
Sunday I had my 8 mile training run on the calendar. We were super lazy and I didn't pull myself out of bed until 1:30 PM. I ate a Clif bar, got dressed, and drove to the greenway. It was a bit cooler than I thought it was going to be (I wore a tank and capris) but my run quickly warmed me up.
The trail crosses a highway, and I didn't really want to go that far, so I decided that I would turn around when I got to that point, run back to where I started, then turn around and run back down the trail, then back where I started (did I lose you yet?). That was probably not the most intelligent thing for me to do as when I got back to the parking lot it was tempting to leave....but I pushed on and finished my 8 mile run.

Woo hoo!!! I had not one, but TWO negative splits!! I was pretty excited to see those numbers!
After I got home, I showered and slipped back into my compression socks for the day and had a nice post run meal of Skinnytaste's Spaghetti Squash Lasagna (I highly recommend trying it..it's so tasty!)
Overall, my run is good...but maybe some of you could help me solve a mystery. The past two long runs I've done I have gotten pain on the inside arch area of my left foot, and on the ball of my right foot. I have started wearing a new pair of shoes to break them in, but it happens with my old shoes as well. I'm wearing either Swiftwick or Feetures! socks. Any ideas?
I love Crossfit, and I will miss it while I'm gone on vacation, so I've decided to put it on the back burner until I get back home and focus more on my training for the half marathon (only 26 more days...squee!!). Once that's over I plan to dive back into Crossfit.
