Let's over-do it, shall we?

I couldn't run on Friday so I decided to take this advice and do some squats. Only I didn't have a stop watch so I decided to do two sets of 50 squats. And this, after not being much of a squatter lately.

Two days later, my butt still has not forgiven me.

I don't blame it. It was silly to do all of those squats. But, what's done is done and it's time for us all to just get over it and move on. So, move on we shall . . .

I had two really good runs this weekend: a 4.6 miler yesterday (with some speedy (for me) hill repeats at the end) and 4.1 today. And, I switched over to my new Brooks so I am now running with a little extra pep!

Yeah. Peppy legs, sore butt. Nice combination.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend --

OH, Marcy -- YOU ARE RIGHT! Picking up a child counts. So, I guess I have been more of a squatter than I thought! HA!
