Between Hanna and the upcoming 20 miler on Friday, I decided I need to skip the rest day today and run. A friend and I trade of little kids while the big ones are at school and today was my kid free day. I hit the road around 9 am and it was starting to get a bit hot and humid already. The first five went great (slightly faster than a 10 minute pace, even with hitting every darn stoplight red). I decided to throw in one extra mile and that was a bit much. It took me about 13 minutes to do 1.2 miles, but I had to do it to get back to my house. :o)
Shoo starts preschool tomorrow, so if that goes well, I’ll get in another five to six miles and then take two rest days before the 20 miler. Shoo was a preschool dropout last fall, so we’ll see how he does.
While Shoo-free, I also picked up some new running shoes (Asics Cumulus, I think) because the Mizunos are just killing my toes, ordered 23 pounds of pulled pork for our party, and ordered the three small kegs (this year may be the biggest yet with 70+ people ACK!). Tomorrow after I run I have to pick up an eighth of a cow for the freezer, as well as about 5000 other errands. Fall is just insane around here!
