Leaving on a jet plane...eventually

I woke again this morning before my alarm. I was just too physically exhausted to get up for my run and contemplated switching my Friday REST day for today. I woke with no surprise a bit of soreness in my upper body, especially arms, mostly likely from the combination of my swim and rock climbing yesterday. I decided to pack my bag with the thought that if I felt that I had the umph in me, I could do my run after school. I thought I did, but the success (or lack there of) with my run said otherwise. I started out quite strong thinking 4 miles was feasable. Not too long there after it felt as if each step was pulling on my arch causing some slight pain. With a lot of walking in the last half mile, it slowed down my run quite a bit. 2 miles was all I had in me.

I got online today to look at flights for my trip that I am taking with my sister in April. We were initially looking at a thursday to monday trip, but when I looked at a friday to tuesday trip I was able to find a nonstop flight that was cheaper. That means no 3 hour layovers! I called my Sis, and before I knew it I was paying for our tickets! (She will pay me back.) It's been almost 2 years since I have last traveled via airplane! Where to, you ask??? Warmer temps for sure. This may give you a hint...
ORN: 2 miles
25:12
12:36 min/mile
Avg. HR: 148
Max HR: 177

February is coming to a close. That only means March is just around the corner, as well as warmer temps and longer days.

Yea, I though AZ too. I mean I'm sure there are trees like that elsewhere, but it does look like the desert. Maybe vegas? Take me.... pls.

Very smart to stop running when you're having pain, no matter what it is. Otherwise, it would possibly get worse.

I wish I had your early morning dedication to workouts.

What a beautiful evening sky! Looks like a lovely trip. The Power of Two meme I did was a Boston variation of this very meme you had tagged me with. I'll ponder this one a bit before I decide to do it or not. OK?
