This run powered by carbs

I got in a most glorious run last night. It was 3.8 miles in 38 minutes and change and I finished with some lunges, squats and agility drills that I learned in PT.

And I felt great.

Probably because I ate the bread bowl at Panera that my soup came in during lunch. My muscles were singing the praises of carbs and were so glad to have them back after the little hiatus I took from them during the last week of PT.

This is my longest run to date since I've been injured and I was really pleased with it.

I know I'm supposed to be going to the gym to lift, but I just haven't yet. It's been so nice out that I don't want to spend time in the gym. That's bad, I know, and I need to get back to it and I will. But for now I'm OK with sticking with some of the exercises they showed me that don't require the weight machines.
