Short and Sweet!
Hello fellow blogger friends! Yes, I am still alive! I have been crazy busy with life in general:) Also, I have been kicked off of our computer so many times due to Kay's homework and my hubby's fantasy sports stuff. Anyhow, I am back. I promise that tomorrow I will play catch up on everyone's blogs! I feel so bad because you all know how much I love to leave you comments! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments that I have received from my last post.....I really appreciate them and they always make me smile:) They also make me feel so loved!! I took Sunday off from running but still managed to do my push-up challenge homework! Jeff, I promise you that I will post my stats on Saturday! I have been very faithful to my plan and have been doing my daily workouts! Monday evening I went on a six mile run and it felt terrible. My legs felt like they weighed one-hundred pounds and my mojo was no show for the night. I managed to keep a nine minute mile pace. Like I said, it was crap! I really wanted to keep a 8:30 pace but I just couldn't do it. Tuesday evening I went out again and took a different running route. I only ran four miles but this run was felt so much better than Monday's. I attempted to focus on my speed and I felt like I was doing a much better job at keeping my breathing slow and regulated. Tonight was gorgeous and I was so excited for this run. I headed out to the Rice Lake Trails and ran around the lake. It was so beautiful. I think so many other runners had the same idea....tons of runners out tonight:)
After I ran around the lake I ran a two mile cool down, making my total for the evening seven miles:) My plan for the rest of the week is to basically run every night. Saturday morning I will drive to St. Cloud to run with the running group:) I have one more week before my next 10k....I have some work to do.I hope that everyone enjoys the rest of their week!! Congrats to Jill, Glenn, Georgia Snail, LMC, Jennifer, Ajh, Jon, JF, Colin, Sarah; Johann and Rick for doing so well at weekend races!! Woo hoo for all of you who PRd!! I enjoyed reading all of the race recaps:) Cheers and happy running!!
