Happy Thursday!

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and that the week has been going well.

After cleaning out my running shirt drawer on Saturday I headed over to Mr. SOTSS’ for the rest of the weekend. We hit up Road Runner Sports for some running sneakers and the grabbed a bite at Chipotle for dinner for a nice lil’ date. Yup, sneaker shopping and Chipotle most definitely is how we show our love. I bought the new Brooks Glycerin 13s to try.

Sunday was a gorgeous 60 degree, sunny day so we took the dogs on a hike. The only wrinkle was that there were a lot of people and dogs doing the same so we had to leash them for much of the time. But we found a quiet spot by this lake that was perfect for Chester to get some swimming in. And Duncan posed a bunch for me.

So this week has been quite impressive for me running-wise. I actually ran 3X during the week. I haven’t been able to say that’s happened in quite some time. Usually I manage to get one or at most, 2 runs in during the week.

I started off with two back to back 3 milers on Monday and Tuesday. Monday’s run felt great. I tried out the new kicks. They felt good. I was worried since I had issues with the Brooks Ghosts rubbing on the side of my foot but these seem good.

Monday!

Monday! Sorry about my pasty legs.

Tuesday’s run was the complete opposite. I felt so sluggish. In general I was just feeling low energy and my tooth was feeling weird above the gumline. It was actually feeling weird over the weekend but I kept trying to ignore it.

Yesterday I had a routine dental cleaning appointment and mentioned the weird sensation above my molar. The dentist came in to examine, poke around and took some x-rays as well. He came to the realization that I had an abscess. Yikes! That’s an infection in the tooth all the way up the canal that can form from decay. So within a few hours I was getting emergency root canal. Good news is that they were able to get to the infection and treat it and I should be just fine.

Thinking of making this my new profile pic. LOL!

Today I figured I’d go out for another run hoping my sore mouth wouldn’t be an issue. I wore the Glycerin’s again and still feeling good about them.

And that's a wrap on my weekday running. Next up is 8 miles on Saturday

I took Duncan for a few walks this week too. He’s been really into sticks lately.

How often do you run (or do any form of exercise) during the week? 

Have you ever had root canal?

  1. I usually manage 4-5 days of running every week. Most of the time, anyway.

    I’ve been really lucky and have never had a root canal. I didn’t even have any cavities until I was almost out of high school. I’m glad you got your tooth taken care of before it got worse! I know I’m definitely guilty of ignoring things when I should probably get them looked at – going to the dr/dentist is no fun at all.
