Did a short run today (Wednesday) mostly because Blackie the dog needed it! My son and I went to the Capitol and back. He biked and I ran. Despite my cough, I got to the Capitol 30 seconds faster than I ever had. I walked back, though.
If I feel up to it tomorrow, I'm going to do the same run with Blackie. I'm trying to push myself just a little bit harder on my runs. One thing I learned in my DNF is that I can currently run 10 miles at a consistent 12-minute/mile pace. Not bad for being 20-30 pounds overweight and only training three months, I think. Especially since my brother got all the running talent in the family and at this point, I'm just grateful I CAN run! But I do need to push it a bit more on some of my runs.
My toe doesn't hurt any more, although it's many attractive shades of black and gray. I just want it to hang in there until after Green Bay!
