The Day After....
Tuesday, July 05, 2011
First I want to thank all of my wonderful Spark Friends for cheering me on yesterday as I ran my 10k! It was an awesome race, I wouldn't have made it through without all of your suppport, and I can't wait for next year.
I even challenged my Mom to make it her long range recovery goal (Just had her knee replaced) and told her I will walk it with her next year! I am going to try and get the whole family in on the action....all 9 of us!
Well - today is the day I am supposed to decide if I am going to undertake the Rock and Roll Half Marathon on August 7th....it all depended on how I felt with the 10K....and you know what....5 weeks is just not enough time to get me ready ----- If I had some 8 or 9 mile runs under my belt - it would not be a problem....but I don't -- so I might shoot for the one in October.....or wait until next August.
With the kids crazy schedules....running much longer than an hour is going to be a challenge unless I get up at 4:30 in the morning, and lets just face it - me and that hour of the morning only meet if I get a nature call.....we just don't get along.....
So - I am going to run like crazy with my kids on their mountain bike trails, and get good runs in to the ball field as well (I can increase that loop by 3/4 of a mile and up to 2 if I want)....and enjoy the kids and the Summer.
Keeping on with Pushups, BC, Quickfire and everything else to try and tone this old body up - so when 40 knocks on my door in the middle of September I can look it square in the face and say "What's the big deal.....I look better now than I did 10 years ago!"
