|The exact tape I am using. Yes, I have giant size 15 Green Feet!|
I don't know that much about KT tape, and I'm really not sure if I should be using it this way, so if anyone who reads this would like to offer up some good advise on what I should be using, please feel free to comment on this Blog!
I got up a little later than I would normally if I were going to the gym, but since I wasn't taking a class today, I thought that sleeping in until 5am would be a nice little treat. The 5k run to the State Capitol and back from the Y is mainly flat and even though it is through the city streets usually offers very little traffic at my normal run times. However I started about 45 mins. later, which meant that I would have to trade seeing the sunrise for more traffic. Today, it was a good deal because even though their was some cloud cover, I really enjoyed watching the sunrise over the downtown. The first mile of this morning's run was on of those where your body keeps asking you if you're really sure that this is what you want to be doing, but as I hit mile two and the sun came up everything seemed to come together. I found a good stride and on the way back came across another runner to pace myself against, which made things all the more pleasant. I kept finding myself staring up at the sky drifting around in my thoughts as I ran back to the Y. I wasn't really thinking about anything important or even memorable, but I just felt really relaxed. Only two things that took me out my mellow running trance: the smells wafting from the IHOP as I ran past -- uhhhh -- bacon grease, and the sight of two drunk college guys, still holding their beers, screaming into a cell phone to their lost taxi driver.
