Ok, not really a “law”, but the rules I learned at my coaching class. Both Wednesday and Thursday I ran faster than I was supposed to. One was a mid-week “long” run, the other was supposed to be an easy run. Both should have been done at a 10:30ish speed. Neither were.
Wednesday, I was just bubbling over with frustration. Seriously I did a brain dump on poor Bill as we ran. Thursday started with an absolutely crappy morning. Shoo woke me around 6am and then for the day at 7:30. I got an email that made me cranky (not bad news, just irritating news). Jones and I went head to head about homework. He had to finish his homework before he could have a friend over or use any screens. After two hours of fighting (and only about 30 minutes of actually doing the work), he was finally done and I was released to run. I was planning 3 easy miles. I ended up doing 4.5 faster miles and would have kept running if I didn’t need to get home. Oh well, sometimes you just have to say “screw the plan” and run what your body and mind need.
And a little back talk to my readers:
Jamoosh – donate money to my kid’s school and I’ll be happy to invite you. Wait, I’ve already had you over for beer and food…
Viper – If you’re ever in the DC area, you are welcome to bring the Enthusiast and come to dinner. Jamoosh can even vouch for my beer choices.
Indi – you are welcome any time.
Tortuga-runner – I’m happy to share my menus with you. Email me if you want more details.
In case you haven’t figured out, I love to entertain and I love beer. If you ever come to the DC area, consider yourselves invited to dinner. ;o)

Am I still invited if I don't drink beer? *ducks to avoid flying objects*
Yes-beer is Good! I have the hardest time sticking to my easy paces in my training. Unfortunately, this also makes for a hard time sticking to my speed paces…..I guess I will forever be a work in progress! Have a great weekend!
I don't usually drink a lot of beer, I actually wanted a Guinness stout this morning.
YAY for breaking the law.I'm all "for" it.
Sometimes "easy" runs are the hardest to do!
Sometimes you need to break the running laws :)If I'm ever in DC I'm for sure calling!
Why don't kids get that if they suck it up and work hard they'll be finished their homework in no time. I used to hate those afternoon battles.
Sometimes it's good to go off plan. Have fun with the beer dinner tomorrow!
