Days run in May: 18
Days left to run in May: 13
Days left to a 5 day weekend (AND the SATC movie premiere!)  9

This is no longer challenging.  Running every day is not so hard; either that or I just got use to it a lot quicker than I thought I would.  Oh hell, lets be honest.  I didn't ever think I would get use to it.  Oh well, 13 days to go.

Today was gym day.

4 miles - treadmill
weights - upper body.  Had to take it a bit easy on the back as I pulled something this morning simply reaching for something and at the same time a big sneeze.  Bamm!  Pulled something.
1 mile - treadmill

I broke up the 5 miles because honestly running on the treadmill has become something I just have a hard time staying focused on and it seems mundane.  Plus I have become one of those people that I use to get grossed out by; you know the ones that has sweat all over the machine when you're done...I use to wonder just how in the heck people sweat like that inside on a treadmill...now I know :o)  And yes, I wipe/clean it off after I'm done :o)

Good news is that for the past 2 days I have had ZERO pain in the left foot, so I think my plantar might be under control.  Still going to roll/ice it here in a bit.  Can't hurt right?

Hey, I'm from Houston too! Looking at your blog list, it looks like we read a lot of the same blogs :)

I have plantar in my left foot too or supposedly that's what it is.

I am the same way about the sweat. But I am one of those people who gushes on certain equipment, namely, Mr. Stairmill. If I forget my towel, it's even worse. I totally spray anything I use for cardio. Sweat grosses me out, especially when it collects or its not mine. Even though my gym is really clean, most everything still grosses me out and I clean before and after all cardio or stretching.

Mad props to you on the treadmill. I can usually only last 3 miles and that's with HIIT. I think it's 90% a mental problem for me, but I despise treadmill. I'd rather do run-trainer and just increase the resistance, hehe.
