Ok, so I may have been a mite dramatic yesterday.

After all my fussing last night I woke up this morning feeling pretty good. There was some minor tightness in my shin but it eased up throughout the day. By the time I got off work and headed for the gym, the pep was back in my step! I took it easy at first and warmed up with 12 minutes on the Stairmaster and when I still felt golden, my curiosity got the best of me and I hesitantly moved to the treadmill. I started out super slow, but didn’t have any issues and ended up completing the 5 mile tempo run I had bailed on yesterday. Success!!
How funny is it that last night I couldn’t even walk on it without a good deal of pain and today it’s perfectly ok? It must have been a spasm or something? Who knows, I’m just sooo glad I don’t have to bail on the race on Saturday. Though I must admit I was almost relieved when I saw the weather forecast … 92 degrees? Yikes!
In other news … I’m just dying to know who sent this little diva my way!
Miss Olivia’s unexpected arrival on my doorstep had me laughing so hard – which, if you recall my state of mind last night, was not an easy feat! She was delivered in a plain brown box with no return address and no card or packing slip and while I had a few guesses as to her anonymous sender, I’ve been shooting blanks all afternoon. Someone’s going to have to clue me in!
