Virtual Run....

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

It is in the record books. I ran with Jicasmom this morning. I was out the door at 5:58....and yes that is AM....who would have thought little old me would be running in the morning, and at the hour that starts with 5???? CRAZY I tell ya!!!!!!

I had decided on a 4 mile loop, that I can extend by 1.5 if I am feeling pretty off I went, on my Galloway path. I have started increasing my first segments by quite a bit - today I did 15/1, 10/1, 8/1 before I felt the need to shorten them up to 4/1's....when I rounded the corner to home, I realized I had been running for 40ish I had to decide if I am going to keep going or stop.....I was torn....if this was tomorrow, I would have kept going - but it is today - and it is babysitting day with my niece, who arrives anywhere between 7 and 7:30....I thought to myself - if they are early today - I may have actually stopped sweating horribly by the time I go - if I keep running, I may run down the street and see them, and then I don't get any cool down/ stretch time.....

So - I stopped at the 4.1 miles.....I wasn't psyched, because I felt good....but it's a good thing, because they arrived early today - and it would have been nasty being fresh off of a run and needing to tend to a 13 month old....

Bad news is - the shower is going to have to wait until nap time this after noon......

Thanks Janelle - I had a great run today - I hope you did too!!!!!!

    Hey! The puppies and I could have waved at you! We were out there at 5:45 so surely we passed you along the way... LOL

    I'll watch the 13 month old so you can shower. I'm baby crazy!

    Way to go on the run. I'm proud of you!!!

    Here's a emoticon for all your hard work!
