    1/3 10.19 km 01:18 12:14 pace

    First run at 2pm; second at 8pm; went out this morning at 8am for run #3.

    Some runs just suck 4.21 km 00:33 12:43 pace

    And I'm glad my sucky run was just 4km long. Hopefully the next 3 will go OK.

    Tired legs that I didn't stretch last night meant I struggled right from the start. I ran 150 metres uphill... read more

      Your next run will be better. Still great for getting out there and pushing through it!

    The heatwave broke around 6 this morning (thank goodness) so it wasn't anywhere near as unpleasant to run today as it was last night. I actually felt like I could breathe. And that breathing w... read more

      Heat wave? It's hard to imagine since it's still in the 40s in Chicago. Good run Ruth, glad the shoes are promising. I hope the blister heals up quick as you rest.

      It's been miserable and wet and cold all day today. I haven't left the house at all. Blister feels better already, but I don't like ADD weather.

    6-8km 7.01 km 00:46 10:37 pace

    5k 5.21 km 00:40 12:21 pace

    Passover starting at the end of this week means an interrupted schedule this and next week. Krav maga on Sundays means that I don't usually run, so I scheduled a short 5k today.

      It's nice when more than a 5K is just a "short run" isn't it? Keep on going Ruth.

      It's the second-shortest I have scheduled until the end of April. The only shorter one is next week, as due to Passover I won't be running Friday, and so I have to run on Sunday, immediately after krav maga. I scheduled in 5 for then.

      I reember the first time I ran 6km, it was so long and I felt such an achievement. Funny to think of it as being such a short run these days!
