I ran on the treadmill today. I've never done that before. I was suppose to be doing intervals today and I had fun messing around with how fast I could go. I did 30 seconds of 8mph.

Quickly followed by a minute of 5.3 mph.

I ended up with 48 minutes and 4.5 miles.

2.9 miles running in 35 minutes, and then a 5 minute cool down. Total: 3.2miles on the treadmill.

I might have done some hill work (walking fast) if my ipod hadn't died. I'm nothing without my music.

So far today I've walked to the car, in the park, and to the car, and to the house. WHEW, what a workout!

I'm looking forward to testing the muscles later this week with some light jogging

Colby, I think that is totally allowed considering your weekend activities. I'd probably still be laying in coma on my couch.

I bought new shoes for myself and daughter today and we are going to get up and run at 0530 . We are 9 weeks from our half mary. My longest run has been 8.25 last Friday. I downloaded a whole lot of oldies and some new stuff on the ipod so I am ready. How come it so hard to get the mojo going again?? I have been getting short runs in but have not been in the training mode but I MUST GET IT GOING!

Maybe a little Springsteen, Mellencamp, Mary J and ZZ Top will help??? I'll report tomorrow a let you know.

Nice job on all your runs ladies! You inspire me!

No running for me until later this week. It's a light rest week so I'm only doing 2x 3-mile maintenance runs before going back into Half Marathon training. I may do a 5K race on Thursday, I won't push it too hard though because I have quite a bit of soreness/stiffness in my left glute muscle from the race on Sunday. Hopefully it'll be gone by Thursday.

Our air quality is still crummy so I did another session on the treadmill today.

My daughter and I ran 1 mile warm up and 4 miles at tempo pace and 1 mile cool down for a total of 6 okay miles. The new shoes felt pretty good. I cleaned up and went to a pilates / yoga class which was excellent. I really think I could get into that.

Here's is something that I experienced this morning, a question or thought for the ladies with grown daughters or sons.... I was running at a faster pace than my daughter but would run ahead and than circle around until my daughter (25 years old) would catch up, but I had a moment where I couldn't see her and I knew she should be right behind me. Of course she was there within a minute but I felt this panic as if she was still a small toddler or child and thought she was lost or missing. She is a mature grown beautiful women but at that moment in time she was my little girl. Shouldn't I be over this by now? It will probably always be this way. Once a mother always a mother.
