This past week, Amanda at RunToThe Finish hosted a virtual 3 mile race in honor of her 30th birthday (Happy Birthday, Amanda!) Of course I signed on early, thinking that 3 miles would be no problem for me. But if anyone has read my last training log or recovery post, three miles at anything more than a crawl suddenly was a problem for me.
Sunday was my first real run in 8 days (I had done one mile mid-week just to see where I was at). I was quite nervous about feeling like crap the whole three miles since that had been the theme of August's first week. I was pleasantly surprised to run under 10 minutes per mile for each of the three miles!
Now, I had some awesome pictures of my race bib, me pre-run, and my Garmin time post-run, but for some reason my iPhone no longer emails pictures as .jpg files? WTF???? I now have a camera on my phone that is a completely useless POS unless I can figure out how to fix this. (Any suggestions or just general commiseration would be welcome!) EDIT: I have determined that this is a problem with Yahoo's new mail. My new Gmail account sends and receives photos as .jpg just fine! Adding them to the end of this post pronto!
Happy 30th Birthday, Amanda! I hope this year is good to you!
