I’ve got a bit of a mini running streak going. Yesterday, I ran for the 7th day in a row! Runs ranged from 3.5 miles to 10.1 miles, for a total of 37 miles this week (2.5 of them barefoot). This is not normal for me. Three days in a row is usually my max with the very occasional week of 4 in a row. I think ONCE I ran 5 days in a row LOL. I know this is nothing compared to Shelly, or even Jess, but it’s a pretty big deal for me. I have three more days before my life gets insane, so my goal is 10 days in a row. The key thing I’ve learned is to keep most of my miles are at my long run pace, with only an occasional faster run or hill workout. So far, so good.
Yesterday I went out for a Garminless four miles. I hadn’t planned it that way, but for some reason, Garmin did not charge. I even forgot to start the timer on my watch so I have no clue how long it took me to run the four miles. What a weird feeling to just run. Reminds me of the good old days before I started training for my first marathon and started blogging LOL.

Thank you to everyone who entered and who reads my blog. I’ve enjoyed “meeting” each and every one of you. We are ramping up into some crazy times here at the MCM Mama household, so running will be infrequent, posting will be erratic, and commenting will be extremely hit or miss. Gotta love summer. ;o)
