June Totals:
Time: 7 hours and 37 minutes
Distance: 41.13 miles

Time: 40:01
Distance: 3.79 miles

First off, thanks to everyone who left me well wishes! I appreciated them tons!

It seems like the time I took off helped heal up the leg. This morning's run went pretty well. I could feel my legs were sluggish from having not run for an entire week, but they survived all 40 minutes of the run. My right calf (the one I think I pulled) was a little tight at the end so I stretched a little bit more than usual. My left shin had hurt a little bit too while I was running, so I made sure to stretch that really well too, and I think I will definitely be icing both legs down when I get home from work today as a precautionary measure.

The weather this morning was absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't have asked for a better day to start my running again. It was in the mid-60's when I went outside and it was sunny with a slight breeze. It rocked.

My legs right now feel really tired. I'm glad tomorrow is a cross training day. I'll try not to work them too much in kickboxing.

As far as a quick weekend update:
Saturday was my last day of softball :o( We lost both games, but they were both really close and more competitive than we had been for a lot of the season. As always, it was a blast and we all had a really good time. But I am super sad the season is over.

Then Saturday evening my roommate who had spent six months in Boston on an internship came back! I was so excited. She only stayed for about two hours to drop off her stuff, go out to dinner and then turn around and drive back to Cleveland. She'll be back for good in about two weeks though.

Sunday was another beautiful day. My friend and I hit the farmer's market for delicious summer fruits and veggies and then lounged on the mall reading because it was way too nice to be inside.

Other than that, nothing too fascinating going on around here. I'm looking forward to Wed. We're going to the Hill to watch the 4th of July concert and fireworks. The 4th in D.C.....should be a pretty good time.

And just a quick plug for my friend's new blog: Tart Reform. She's a great cook, and those bagels she wrote about in her first post.....delicious!
