Running Week - December 10th - 16th 2007

Wow I am realizing this is the third-to-last week of 2007. Already...

Had a relatively gentle 6 km this morning. It was really dark when I started at 7:15, so depressing. The good news is that after next week it will start to get better again.

Legs were kinda heavy, but fine. I had to run alone, my partners seemingly having fallen victim to late-night, end-of-term grading frenzy.

On my next run I will go past my 850 km objective for the year (really recently set, I must admit). One of the girls I run with asked me what I do as a reward, and... well, I hadn't thought of that. I am just happy to make it there. I think new shoes are in order, though, so that will have to be the reward! Suggestions?

Have a good week ladies!

Grog, new shoes at a minimum! How about some really nice running sox too??!! And a cute new running hat! And...

I had no idea how far I'd run this year and didn't have any sort of goal mileage/kilometerage (is that a word?) but just looked at my journal. I've still cycled more this year, but not by much!

I definitely was more focused on running. Right now I'm at about 1800 km running (which is 1119 mi). Seems like a whole lot more than that, though! I don't know if that will change in 2008 or not. I'm a more comfortable runner than I am cyclist, I think.

I'm due some new road/dreadmill shoes. Ran 5 on the dreadmill this evening and could really tell that these shoes are done. Guess I'll be shopping for some new shoes too!

I didn't get to run today. Too much work.

Maybe tomorrow.

Great job on all your mileage ladies!!

4 miles, nice and slow, with my dog. But other people and THEIR dogs... I swear...

Bitter cold, snow and ice forced me to join the rec center tonight. I'd never ever run on a treadmill before....and now I know why. It felt great to have gotten in a good workout after several day absence, but indoor exercise just isn't my thing.

Oh and my shins were killing me after 30min on the treadmill. Any ideas? I've not had shin pain for over 20 years, since high school track!

Oh my! That IS a lot of mileage, if you keep going like that you'll hit 2000 by the end of 2007!

(Round numbers and what they do to us.)

Congrats Yellow!

I am surprised that I'm so comfortable running, and so disinterested in cycling right now. But the weather is aligned with that. (Or my feelings are aligned with the weather?) So whatever...

I will go shoe shopping, and will point the running belt I'm interested in to my Dear, Sweet Life Partner. So that way he'll take care of the reward!

Two weeks of awful weather back in Ohio - (did get in a few gym workouts), two days travel, two days of crushing on-the-couch depression after the autumn I've been through, finally dragged myself out for a run today. It turned into a beautiful day in Florida after storms this morning. 4.58 and I wasn't too awfully slow (compared to my normal snail's pace anyway

), which was a surprise.
