Let’s just get right to business, shall we?
Yesterday our morning started slightly earlier than I would prefer, but it’s okay. It was for a good reason. Chris and I decided last night that we would get up early and go for our run. The alarm went off at 6:30 and we finally rolled out of bed around 7am.
I’m really not a morning runner. My bones are creaky, and I’m just tired. It takes me forever to get up and get moving around. But, Chris worked down in Tampa yesterday , and our friends were coming over later in the evening so the morning was the only chance we had.
Chris said he wanted to do 3 miles Sunday morning. Honestly, I was hoping after we started running he would cut it back to 2 miles. No such luck. Bleh. My knees were stiff and it took me about 3/4mi to get warmed up and into my groove. I still wanted to quit at 2 so I asked him again how many he wanted to go… He stuck with 3. punk. — Thankfully it was a cool morning in our area, so it wasn’t to dreadful. Our miles weren’t fast, but we got them done and that’s what counts.
Obviously we were still waking up in mile 1, and miles 2 & 3 were not to much more successful, speed wise.
This was actually a pretty successful week in regards to running. The most successful week I’ve had in months. Hallelujah !!
Tuesday: 3mi 28:59
Wednesday: 4mi 37:58
Thursday: 3mi 31:01
Friday: 2mi 17:41
Sunday: 3mi 29:36
Total: 15 miles
The fact that I ran 15 miles last week is pretty awesome! I haven’t run 15 miles in one week since April, folks, April. I feel like things are on the up & up. I definitely think it helps that Chris is running with me. It is so much better running with someone than solo. We don’t really even talk when we run, but just the fact that he is there makes it easier. It’s the push out the door that I’ve been needing.
Total mileage: 40 miles (highest mileage since March!)
Days worked out: 18
Rest days: 12
It’s really ironic that Casey Anthony’s freedom could possibly be taken away (for good) on Independence Day. … All she wanted was her freedom, right? oy vey. What a mess.
One last thing before I stop talking: Check out Sam’s view of Independence Day on her blog! She is also discounting her raffle tickets today!! Check it out!
Hope you are enjoying your long weekend.
