Don’t forget to honors those that gave all. How to Observe Memorial Day
This weeks was my best running week in quite a while. I covered over 18 miles; eventually I hope to be up to about 25 miles per week. I wanted to run more than 3 miles on the 26th, but thunderstorms put a halt to that, and then the hubby had dinner done after 3 miles…and of course I can’t let him down. 😉
On Saturday I ran with a the Columbus Eastside Running Club. I will run one more time with them to see if I really like it. If so, then I’ll join them and train with them for my full marathon. I was able to run 45 seconds per mile faster with the group than on my own. I take walk breaks on my own and that was not the case with the group. I am a much stronger runner than I give myself credit for, but can’t do it on my own. The only drawback is that the group meets about 50 minutes from my house, but I get to car pool with some running pees, so it might not be so bad.
I wanted to run 9 miles today, but I did not know the area we were running in and so I resigned myself to run whatever the pace group was running and will run my long run on Monday (Memorial Day).
