  1. RUN
    Recovery run 4.2 mi 00:54 12:51 pace

    Nothing much to say about this. Just a simple and slow run in the muggy night air. Legs were sore from my 9 miler yesterday.

    If I wear this, do you think hubby will let me run where I want?

  3. RUN
    good Weeken long run 9 mi 01:46 11:48 pace

    Had to call for physical and emotional backup on this run. Almost ran out of water so I had to call home. Then at mile 5 I was struggling and received a nice "Good morning!" text and resp... read more

  4. RUN
    Tempo 5.03 mi 00:55 10:54 pace

    Went to the track for this one since it was a tempo and I needed to start while it was still dark. I ran one mile slow, then was shooting for 30 minutes race pace, one mile slow. After my second ... read more

    Warm up and cool down 1.02 mi 00:20 19:36 pace

    Nice stroll to the black top before my run and from the black top to my house after the run. I enjoy this part of my routine very much.

  6. RUN
    Midweek easy 5.23 mi 01:02 11:50 pace

    Everything felt easy about this run except for the heat. I am hoping that fall brings me speed. Still using heart monitor. Tried to keep heart rate below 150. Not very easy.

  8. RUN
    Recovery run 3.84 mi 00:50 13:01 pace

    Super slow. Trying to keep the heart rate down. My son went with me for this and when he finished his run, he walked beside me while I "ran". He was still able to go faster than me. I w... read more

  9. RUN
    Weekend long run 8.18 mi 01:35 11:36 pace

    Planned to run 1 hour 35 minutes and that's what I did. This week was a step back week before adding more time on my feet. The run went well but last mile was tough. I had to ration my water.... read more

    5:30 run 4.5 mi 00:50 11:06 pace

    Planned to walk more than this but I couldn't stop running.

  14. RUN
    Recovery run 3.85 mi 00:47 12:11 pace

    This was slow and easy. I planned to stop after 40 minutes but decided to keep going until I was closer to home. I love these slow runs while watching the sun rise.

  15. RUN
    Early morning run 8.5 mi 01:41 11:52 pace

    Still ramping up the miles. Trying to decide if I need to back off this week or not. It was a bit of a struggle to get these miles today. I was struggling at mile 5 and my virtual running buddy he... read more

    Tempo run 5 mi 00:55 10:57 pace
