Shorts Weather

Last night I made my official first run in shorts this year. It was a bit cooler than normally I would like for wearing them, but I just couldn't resist. Tights and pants for so long I wanted shorts!! I think the temps were mid-50s when I ran. Today and tomorrow it's going to be 60!! So wish I didn't have to work tonight, but thankfully I don't have to work at all tomorrow. I am planning to finally get a higher mileage run in tomorrow of 15-17 (maybe on Sunday instead but we'll see what happens) possibly around my lovely lakes, I'm sure they will be packed!!
Workouts for the week I have so far managed 27 miles and 2 strenth sessions. I should be doing strength today as well, but might just run instead. The running hasn't included the speed I'm supposed to be, but I'm getting the miles and it's feeling good. Although I've had a little weird foot issue the last couple of days. Not sure what the problem is or what I should do for it. It's the area by my 2-3 smallest toes on my left foot, the toes themselves along with a little but of the foot. No idea what is causing it, although I think I noticed it a little bit wearing the shoes I did for my race (they are lighter and less support than my normal distance and training shoes). I've worn them before though and didn't have this. I still also have a very tight hamstring/ITB on my left side. A massage I think is the only thing going to work that out. It hasn't stopped the running though and seems to feel better while running. I managed 10 in a light misty/foggy weather on Wednesday, just headed out with no real plans for how far I was going to go, 10 miles later my frustrations of the day were gone and I was feeling so much better than I had on Tuesday!! Running is a great thing. I'm encouraging some friends to do it too.
