Running into July 6/29-7/5

What, Wednesday and I'm first?! C'mon ladies, I need these threads for motivation.

15 minute tempo run between raindrops, plus warmup and recovery jog. Felt pretty good.

So I'm walking my cooldown and having a recovery snack (aka picking black raspberries as fast as I can shove them into my mouth while still sort of walking ), when I hear this rustling in the woods. It's too slow and sustained to be the usual squirrels, chipmunks or birds. I move around, trying to see what it is without spooking the critter. It takes me a couple of minutes before I finally see the black back and white stripe.

Don't let me bother you, dude. I moved on.

Nice slow trail run. I love the woods.

Glad I didn't run into any skunks on the way . . .

I admit I was waiting for someone to start the thread and I can FINALLY join it again. I really have not been running at all. I actually have been barely working out/training for the past few months. But have my first Tri coming up. It is hot as hades in FL and humid. So I did the TM thingy. 5 min walk (WU) and then 20 minute run...worked up to 5.5--which is normally where I like to hang out on long runs. It was a bit fast considering I really haven't run. When I don't run for a while and finally get back to it, I realize how much I miss it. Oh yeah, I did a 5 min walk CD. (No black berries or skunks on my CD walk).

Oh yeah, I am sure I'll be VERY intermittant on running. My tri is a sprint, I can easily (but slowly) do the bike and run distance, my main training is in the swim. Cuz I just started that.

But just maybe I'll slip in another run this week.

Just finished an interval workout at the track. I was so tired this evening I was planning no vegetating on the couch. But DH came home and kicked me out with my running shoes in hand. So off I went . . .

I am posting. That's right. 1/2 mile on a real (not the underwater) treadmill. I am starting to get excited. I know I have to continue to be patient, but I RAN! Yippie! And there was not even any pain! Ok, well that's all I have here! I am going to go cheer for the tens of thousands that will run the peachtree 10K right past my house in the morning (and not be bitter about not running, because I am slowly back on track).

That would really stink!

Yay Kacie! Take it slow now....

Heart rate intervals on the track, before my haircut this morning.

Nothing to do with running, but right now I'm watching a mother red-bellied woodpecker feed her baby with seeds and suet from my feeder.

They're so cute!
