Went out early to beat the heat and needed a headlamp. Yep, winter's a'comin' (yay)!

I did a 4.5 mile track interval workout today. Long run tomorrow. Then no more hard runs until IM.

Happy running everyone!

Just over four miles yesterday lunchtime, was going to aim for around a slow steady six but work threatened to get in the way so headed out for three. Felt so good extended it for a mile

, annoyingly the potential work conflict was delayed so I could've stayed out longer. Aiming for steady six (note to self, slow down) tomorrow and am continuing the stretching and strengthening.

LUCKY YOU!

Hey, is this a "M-Dot" IM that you are doing? We need your bib number when you get it so we can track you. I can't believe it's HERE!

Hill repeats this morning with tempo runs between sets. Hard stuff, but over quickly!

Just got back from a 7-mile trail run. Had planned on 8 but I started tripping on a lot on the roots so I walked the last mile. It was great. Saw about a dozen deer prancing around. Two eagle toddlers playing and a big momma eagle not too far away. A red fox. And a huge dragon fly flew with me for awhile.

Last run before Sunday's Iron Girl Triathlon

Iron Girl Route

3.25 miles / 34m 30s / 10m 37s/mile

forgot my watch so time is approximate (noted start and end times on my cell phone)

by far my best run on the route. I ran every freakin' step today for the very first time! Pushed it a bit harder and cut off about a minute from my previous best.

at the start of the run I was actually cool, very unusual for DC in August. I hope it's that way on Sunday.

Nice going!!! You're going to do great on Sunday!! We can't wait to hear all about it.

Limewave- sounds like such a nice run and some interesting wildlife spottings. That's why I like trail running more than road running- so many more interesting critters to watch.

I think I'm filing for divorce from my running shoes for a while. I'm getting slower instead of faster and my frustration has me hating to lace up my shoes and head out the door. Maybe if I stop doing it, I'll fall back in love.

Keep on running ladies- I'm living vicariously through your adventures (even tho I rarely post on this thread, I read it all the time).
