Run, run, run away... Week of Mar 11th

I just want to say to Limewave, you keep on going, Girl! There will always be idiots trying to bring you down to their level. Just smile and wave and know that you're getting healthy and that you're going to outlive them all.

Yesterday I did a 1 hour trail run, the first of the season. Just before I got to my turn around point I thought I heard something growling in the bushes. Stupid me, I stopped to be sure. Then I thought to myself that if it was something growling what the h*ll was I stopping for??? So I hotfooted it out of there. So, count that 1 hour with a short sprint.

I never did see anything, btw...

Mar 11?

I didn't know we can turn back time on this thread.

Did 8 miles trail run this morning before the storm hit, with half way stop.

Happy Mother's Day!

I also got in 8 miles Sunday... longest run yet since starting up again. Yippee! Avg about 9.5 minute miles thru most (that includes a couple 30 sec walks). The sun even shown while I was out, but the wind didn't stop. Starting to think about being spring here, I think!

Finally!

woohoo - first brick of the year.

40k bike (crappy average below 22 kph) - but there were 2 major and 2 not so major hills in it and I really pumped it - and then out the door for maybe 3K with also a hill.

is it perverse if I say I actually like bricks? It's like my motor is already warmed up so I feel better...

And then I dunked my legs into the river before strolling home.

yay...

I put down the date before I was fully caffinated.

I'm lucky I got the month right.

You must still not be fully caffeinated

- the month was the part you didn't get right!

May 11th. Got it.

5-11-08: I ran 13 miles with a 11:30 minute mile. I did a 5 minute walk/2 minute run combo. I would walk around a 12:30 minute mile and run a 9-10 minute mile.

I started out with a walking group I decided to join for their workout for the first time. We were walking a 14 minute mile and I couldn't run at all. I knew that wasn't going to fly for very long. So I took off and one of the people came with me. He got pretty fatigued and said he couldn't keep up with me anymore at mile 3... so I went on my own and started running too.

It was funny, I passed some guys who were running/walking (resting) on the path at one point at mile 4. At mile 9 one of the guys comes up and says, "I finally caught up to you! I couldn't let someone walking the whole way beat me." It was all said in a very nice and joking tone... and I thought it was funny that he was running the entire way and it took him that long to catch me. I let him know that I walk pretty fast.

Overall a great half marathon for me.

I have another half marathon to do in training next weekend. I might actually sign up for a half marathon for my training run. It's $50 which is pretty pricey, but it will be my only half stand-alone marathon and there aren't anymore in the area until my Ironman. I would get a medal! But it's on paths I could run for free that same day. So I'm still thinking on it.

Oh crap!

I should never do anything before my second pot of coffee.
