The best ice packs EVER!

After today's sprints my shins and calves were a little tight and sore. I went to find some Ziploc bags to put ice in, but we were out, so I improvised. :) 2 bags of butterscotch morsels work PERFECTLY! They're the perfect temp to put right on your skin and they do a good job of icing you down for a good 15-20 min. You pop it into the freezer for 20 min and it'll work again for another 20. Cause you're supposed to do 20 on 20 off right?
My run was good today. I kept a constant pace for the first 3 miles and did my .06mile sprints. I did pretty good. I felt good. I got to the house (.12 miles away from the end) when Caleb's bus pulled up. So, I got him and took him to the house and finished up my run. The bus driver said I looked good running down the street. :) I'm glad I look good, like a runner, ya know. I ran at a comfortable pace and didn't look at my watch, but after I plugged it in it said that I ran at a pretty constant pace of 11.12 min mile. NICE! I'm amazed that my time has gone down so much. A year ago my comfortable pace was a 14 min mile. Wow...
So, I found my big post marathon race! Women's Running Magazine 1/2 Marathon. It's gonna be FUN! I figure if I register for it now, than it'll be something really exciting to look forward to when the marathon's over.
