10 @ home (11:54)

Comments: This was a much better run than last weeks 6 miler. I did watch what I ate before-hand and eliminated any heavy foods. The run overall was good, I did not feel exausted at mile 9 (I was worried about that), rather just tired. Saw the hubby and kids around mile 8 coming back from town, he honked and made them wave! That was a lift in itself.

The book I was listening too was very interesting and did a good job of keeping my mind of the running. I did delevop a blister on my right foot in the arch, which became noticable around mile 5. About the same time my left foot/middle toe started to hurt. But neither ever got to the point where I could not continue. Guess I am just getting tougher! haha

Overall the run was not as fast as I had hoped, but I was not totally spent at the end and felt like I could have continued, that’s just what I wanted.

6 miles @ home (11:33)

Comments: They can’t all be great runs, now can they? This one was a bit painful, BUT it was self inflicted in some way. The hubby made these KILLER blueberry pancakes for breakfast…boy, did they sit heavy during the run! Lesson learned: Do not eat too many pancakes before a long run. 🙂

Other than the stomach cramping between mile 2 and 3 the run went fine. It was a beautiful day to run!

4 miles @ work (10:59)

Comments: My youngest daughter has been sick the last few days with strep throat so I have not been able to run. Amazing how getting up all night long to cater to a sick kid can wear you out. But today, back at work, I was about to get out and had a very strong run. I felt strong even during mile 3. Wish they could all be like that.

My boss, who is suppose to be on a skiing trip in Colorado, called. He broke his leg out there, had to undergo surgery and all. Now he is now back at home. I told him that’s one hell of a way to get out of running a 1/2 marathon. lol

8 miles @ home (11:25)

Comments: What a difference a week makes…but then the weather conditions were much better this time around! 😉

I enjoyed the run. It was great getting out. I had been bitchy all weekend long and the long run made it all go away (for the most part at least). After the run I really took the time to stretch. It seems to make me less sore.

Blister, in the arch of my right foot! Urgh…perhaps when I get of my lazy tuff and buy new shoes I should get a few pair of new running socks as well.

4 miles @ work (11:20)

Comments: With the new Garmin in hand I went out. I set it to beep at me every 5 and then 1 minute. Run 5, walk 1. I am pretty sure I can do that with my old Garmin too, but never tried it. Other than it had problems picking up a signal (downtown), like the old one, it worked really well and doesn’t feel as bulky as the other one did. Regular wrist strap or velco strap, I am not sure which one I like better yet. The old Garmin had the velco strap and I miss it. Perhaps that’s only because I am so used to it.

The run overall went well…I only had minor issues with snow, the sun was out, I was listening to a new book (on tape), and I think the new Garmin made me push myself a little bit. I am looking forward to my long run on Saturday/Sunday (not sure which day I’ll do it yet). I’ll try to get some weightlifting in tomorrow, but I have to run to the PO at lunch, so we’ll see.
