Technically today was supposed to be my track day. But I just wasn't feeling speedwork. In fact, I wasn't sure during that first mile I was even going to do 4 - holy cow my legs were tired that first mile. But then they warmed up, thank goodness. This ended up being a really good run.

Oh, and @Sarah, you were totally right - Footloose is a great running song!

4 days = 20 miles. Nice.

I need to hit the laundromat today, though. Wore one of my shirts for a second time and was pretty grossed out. :)

    lol... I have a couple of sports bras that need to just be thrown out already. Way to get that 4 miler in even though you weren't feeling it. Funny how sometimes runs like that can turn out pretty good!

    Glad it ended better than it started! There is no way I could wear any running gear twice. I have to let it air dry before I can even throw it in the hamper - I made that mistake one time only!
