Yesterday I had an awesome four mile run. I wasn’t in the mood to do it, but Jess managed to run in the heat, so felt like I needed to get out there. The temperature was actually reasonable here and there was a nice breeze. I wore my garmin, but only used it for mileage and to check in at each mile. The plan was to take it nice and easy after my horrible seven mile run the day before. My speed? 9:36, 9;17,9:08;8:49. That was a nice surprise. The only mile that I “pushed it” was the last one when I realized I was heading for progressively faster miles.
Tomorrow I have a 15 mile run (part of which will be my 08-08-08 8 miler for Nancy’s virtual race). The weather is supposed to be perfect. Unfortunately, I have the kids’ head cold now, so it may not be quite as enjoyable as I’d hoped.
Beer Geek is home and he took the boys to the park to give me a break. I took a quick walk up to the drugstore and got Zicam and gatorade (no shot blocks for me tomorrow LOL). Now I’m vegging in front of the computer, but really, I should be napping.
