We're trying to get these weeks to start on Sundays!

I did 8.25 yesterday, a "short long run." After 103 miles on the bike Saturday it felt so short! My legs were a little tired, but "wow, am I done already?"

Hey Oak I am doing eight tonight... about how long did that take? I want to let the Mister know when I will be home!

Almost an hour and a half. Slow, I know.

I carry water for anything over 6, and gel when I'm going over 8.

Took me an hour and a half to do 7 miles yesterday. Molasses in January, that's me.

I am beginning to run again and yesterday I did 2 12min miles and am pleased as punch. Now I am having thoughts of signing up for the local half marathon in February.

No runs for me to post.

I am just over the heat and humidity. I need to re-find my joy of running. So I am just waiting til I go on my trip to CT. cool 50 AMs and some different scenery should do it. Goal...get a run in each day (but travel day) and go for 4 - 5 instead! It'll be slow w/ them there hills, but better than this muggy weather! it! I LOVE 1/2 marathons. You have plenty of time to get there by Feb.

Hee--and here I thought I was the only slow one. I'm doing 3.5 k regularly and feeling strong with the slightly longer distance (but still molasses slow). I'll do intervals again on Wednesday or Thursday and try to fit in an outdoor run on the weekend.

Well, tt ended up taking me an hour and a half to do the eight, which was mostly on dirt road and trail. It was a really nice run and I had a great time and felt like I could have kept going! My poor husband was not expecting me at 6:30 and did not have dinner ready! Bad husband!

I had two of those small water bottles in a fanny pack. I drank half from each. I probably should have drank more but I wasn't inclined to. I tried to drink at every mile but I just forgot.

One good thing is that I had no trouble running and sipping at the same time... I had a problem with that with the paper cups during races - but the bottles are pretty easy to sip from while running. So I didn't walk through my water breaks, I kept running, albeit a little more slowly.
