Go Phillies!

by - Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Wheeee the Phillies won the NLDS last night beating the Rockies 5-4. It was getting to be a little bit of a nail biter at the end. The Rockie's had two on with two outs and were only trailing by one when the Phils made a pitching change and brought in Brad Lidge.

If you follow the Phils, you know Lidge hasn't been as awesome this year as last year. But in the clutch he brought back his 2008 form and striking out the last batter for the third out the victory!

Bring on the Dodgers in the NLCS on Thursday!

In running news, I got in a nice 5.2 mile run yesterday afternoon. It was chilly and windy out and I probably would have been comfortable in my running capris, but I wore long sleeves and shorts. The coldness was totally going to make my legs move faster right haha?

I had actually been hoping to get in a 10K yesterday, but I didn't spend the time mapping out a route before hand. I threw a couple extra turns in during the run, hoping maybe it'd be enough to add the distance I needed, but I knew when I was getting close to home that I had fallen about a mile short.

Oh well. It's not really that big of a deal. I knocked out the 5.2 and averaged 9:34 minutes per mile.

I forgot to stretch though because I was chilly and wanted to get in a warm shower quickly. My left calf muscle is reminding me of that major FAIL this morning.

  7. As the cooler temps stick around you just want to get inside. My stretching lags when it is cold out. Hope your calf is feeling better.
