Finally I did a normal tempo by myself without having to chase anyone down! Stephen and I got up at 4 this morning to run. I got dressed and even warmed up. I felt down right lousy so I decided to go back to bed and attempt (or skip) a later run. It's nice and cool today so I was able to run midday without too much heat. The wind is, of course, blowing but it didn't feel too bad. I didn't wear the garmin, I just used a timer and ran a well known 7 mile route. I ran easy for 2 miles, hard for 3 miles, then easy for the remaining 2. I was discouraged at 2 miles to look at the timer and see that I was at 20:44 for 2 miles of running. I didn't look again and feel pretty good about what I ended up with. This even includes a phone call from home requesting popcorn for lunch. I left the 10 year old in charge. No one died, but he only made lunch for himself. You can't win them all... I followed up with cannonball cooldown.

    Hey now! Your brain must have made up for the discouragement by telling your legs to MOVE MOVE MOVE. Fantastic tempo run! My 10 year old would have forgotten to even feed himself. :-)

    haha awesome and GREAT tempo! Wow I think you were going faster during those tempo miles than you will ever know. Sometimes ditching the dumb watch is the way to go. :)

    Your time is great, as usual. I don't know how you do it with kids. I don't know how anyone that has kids can run........ But I would think that going by yourself is fabulous. and I'm sure you deserve the break. way to go.......
