Hello all in Sparkland!!!
This morning was a 30 minute run on rolling hills.
Program: 1/2 Marathon, Galloway week 4
Distance 2.61 miles
time 31 minutes
average pace 10.30
course rolling hills
temp 60 degrees
Run was okay. Still a little sore from all the gardening an the 5 mile run from the weekend. Still do not like the lower calorie burn especially when other work outs have to be postponed.
I suppose today is okay though as I am meeting w/ the Personal Trainer to go over a game plan tonight instead of going to Curves. Will let everyone know how that turns out.
Dancing is also slowing down now. No more lessons till fall, so now every other Wed is free...YIPPY.. Think I'll add this a horse day!
Found out my great place for the lilies cannot be as that is how the bob cat gets into the beech. so now I have to find someplace else to plant 10 lilies and FAST!

I did this Sunday and I am still stoked over it!
I mapped it out in the car on Saturday. I had a few ways to go, the flat way w/ a bit of a large hill, but divided up into three large steps.. ends up being just as high as the big kahuna hill!
Avoid the hill but run a bit up hill around BLIND corners.. uh don't like that one!
Run the big kahuna hill and then go right or left for a short distance and back.
I chose the one w/ the three steps.
Program: 1/2 Marathon, Galloway week 3
Distance 5.18 miles
time 66 minutes
average pace 10.30
course flat w/ 3 stepped tiered huge hill
temp 65 degrees
WOW. I admit when I drove it out, I was like I can't do this, this is a huge jump. Normally my mileage increases in 1/3 of a mile, this was more than 3/4 of a mile from my furthest run. It was misty and 99% humidity and I didn't feel good, so I decided to run Sunday vs Saturday.
Sunday shows up to be a gorgeous sunny day, 65 and humidity at 57% and I felt great and had the attitude that
I CAN SO DO THIS.
and I did!! I don't like the work out I designed though. I was playing w/ the runkeeper and ran 1/2 miles, walked 1/4, ran 1/4, walked a 1/4 and then repeated. I'll change the work out for the next long run to be run 5-7 minutes, recover 1 minute and repeat till done.
I did so much gardening this weekend!! 4 hours on Saturday pulling weeds, raking. Then after the run Sunday, I did 2 or more hours weeding and planting flowers. Adding a lily section to the pond area and got 6 peonies! Love peonies!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

and I like it!
I finally got to stop playing phone tag w/ the PT and we talked today. She had notes on me already and said 'hmm, let me see, oh yes, from Deb (Zumba instructor) she is a little keg of dynamite'
Please hold on while I bask in my infamous glory
okay, I think I'm done, oh wait.. here it comes again...
Admit it, I made you all LOL didn't I?
This running yesterday instead of Friday has me all thrown for a loop... today is a run day but I ran yesterday... augh. I need to DO something... I checked the temps and it was 63 at 1:15 but at 2 is supposed to be 69, so as soon as I am done with this blog, I'll at least get in a power walk.
Then I'll have to gather up my nutritional print outs (thanks SP for providing that!) and my work outs and average calories burned during the week. I'm going to meet the PT for a sit down at Starbucks (gag me) on Tuesday evening.
and (that's drumroll, did you get it? Crazydogladybo did I'm sure) This weekend will be my longest ever run using the Galloway 1/2 plan, will be doing my 5 mile run. Longest to date is 4.16.
Have a fabulous weekend all!!!

I got guilted into not running this morning last night. My BF was not as stern as the night before but did approach the subject very carefully and very concerned.
First he asked if I was planning on running, then said he wished I would reconsider or at least cut back and only do 1/2 of what I was planning. Then kept saying it's not normal to be this hot this time of year, you haven't built up to the heat yet, etc. It was 86 degrees at 9 p.m.
I made a comment my bike tires were flat and needed the compressor. He asked if I could wait til the weekend, I said I could. I bet if I said no, he would have gone out right then and there and filled the tires!
At 6 a.m. it was 78 degrees. Yuk. My BF left at 3 a.m. to go to work out of state and at that point was not sure if he'd be back tonight or not, and I figured god if anything DID happen, I so wouldn't hear the end of it.
So I plan on going to Curves tonight, so I have something to do. I'll run tomorrow if it's not a torrential downpour. It's supposed to be 58, that's more like it!
SO.... I finally called the personal trainer number I was given and right now we are playing phone tag. I am impressed with her msg back to me, very up beat and motivational! This is a good sign!
ooh, another reason to take one for the relationship... I'm thinking of getting a kitty!!!! He is more of a dog lover, but I've always wanted a cat. Taite was already tested with the kitten. We should be good!
