Still loving it!
Ran 4x 6 miles last week and then a "long" run of 12 miles on Saturday AM. It took my legs a little while to warm up, but over the second half, I averaged my marathon goal pace, so that made me feel pretty confident.
Sunday I ran 4 easy miles and I was NOT feeling it! It definitely takes me a while to warm up, so short runs are usually disappointing to me. But, it did leave me with a lot of free time for the rest of the day! I spent it staining this wooden console that came with the house. We were considering tossing it, but I found a can of dark stain and it really brought it to life!
Anyway, the highlight of the weekend was meeting Spaker Patty - SEEHOLZ! She and her hubby Dan were having a little anniversary weekend away and chose Miami. I was so thrilled to finally meet her - she was one of my first Spark friends and she remains one of my favorites! It was like meeting an old friend - she and Dan (who is totally awesome, BTW!) drove over from their hotel and we took a long walk along the beach, just chatting like old friends. I know that if I lived in Ohio or she lived here, we would be doing that on a regular basis. Of course, now that I typed all that, I am hoping that she and Dan didn't think I'm a complete idiotic weirdo! HA!
Other than that, Larry was really sick from Friday through today. He had a fever, but no other symptoms, so I am hoping I don't catch whatever he had. We slept in separate rooms and I avoided him as much as possible, other than to deliver Gatorade and Tylenol to him! Wearing rubber gloves! LOL!
Just a few more days till the marathon! Cannot wait!
