I took them for a spin on the treadmill last night and they felt pretty good. Well, two spins actually. I ran a quick 2 miles, hopped off to do some weight training, and then ran another slower two miles (because squats make my legs angry!). I was very happy with the way my leg felt during both runs. I'm hoping this is a long and loving marriage for the next 300-500 miles.
I think the answer to my leg issue is to run outside more. I went for a run with my dad over the weekend and felt really, really good! The best part about it all was the I was too busy focusing on the not tripping over roots and rocks that I wasn't over thinking my stride/gait/whatever. My leg never bothered me or crossed my mind once! I tend to focus on how I am feeling and try to make too many adjustments in my stride when I am running on the treadmill...and I don't think that is a good thing.
Anyway, after my workout, Julia and I enjoyed a delicious, peach-strawberry smoothie :) Alex had gone out for the night to a Hokie event so it was just a girls night in. I have to admit some of my favorite moments are the ones where it's just the two of us. What can I say? I'm selfish and love having her all to myself (when she is behaving, happy, and quiet) ;)
