157 – Running

100610 (2)
The weather has been so nice here.  I’ve been trying to take advantage of it and get my cardio in outside these days.  When I do cardio at the gym, I do “run/walk intervals”.  When I do cardio outside, I walk (and occasionally throw in a little jogging).  I have a hip flexor and a foot injury that flare up when I run outside on hard surfaces.  I’m no Spring Chicken any more, so when I switch to the outdoors, I consider the impact on my joints and bones – it trumps my running aspirations.  I’d much rather walk than be laid up with an injury.
Today was a busy day…my work day started with a funeral for one of our church members, then I worked out at lunch, got stuck at Walmart for an hour trying to get David’s prescriptions that I ordered refills on three days ago, went to see Jodi (she had her gallbladder removed today), ran home to get changed, then on to church to teach the Cubbies, and before going home we stopped at Ms. Charlsie’s so I could get her medicine sorted. Whew!
I got so tickled at Jodi today when she said that she told Gary that he better think before deciding to trade her in on a newer model because the next one may have all her parts and he’ll have to pay for all this stuff over again. Haha! She is so funny!
