Great results!
It took me months to get over my fear of falling.

Awesome!!

Catherine, sounds like you are well on your way to defeating those memories. The first time back can be a tough one.

WEDNESDAY
Easy Run
Distance: 4 miles (5 miles total)
Intervals: :30/:20
Location: Gym Track
Enjoyment Level: 3 (out of 3)

Mile Splits: 9:54 / 9:46 / 9:52 / 9:32

Notes: First time running on the track since my fall and broken arm. I've found myself surprisingly reluctant to go back to the track. But, of course, once I actually got myself there and started running, I was fine. During my warm up, I did make myself do the side shuffle that I was doing when I fell, including around the curve where the accident happened. Just to replace that memory with a more successful one.

I kept the pace easy and it felt good, although I was tired going into the run from all that has been going on outside of running. But by mile 4, I had shaken that off and was quite relaxed.

Why did you run outside?
Way to stick it out - I wouldn't have managed it.

Catherine, it looks like you had a difficult run today, but you proved you are one tough running lady. I say good job, for overcoming all of the obstacles you had to face.

We had a slightly cool front come through and the forecast showed temps below 80 until late morning. They were wrong, as it turns out. It was already 80 at 9:00 am. So yes, I should have been at the gym. But you know what they say about hind sight.

It's silly, I know, but I had my accident on that gym track.

Not at all surprised you had some issues with the water bottle.

With the heat why did you decide on outside, you've mostly done inside running and I'd think the heat would be even more bothersome in that circumstance

SUNDAY
Long Run
Distance: 16 miles
Intervals:
:30/:30 (5)
:15/:30 (6 - 13)
Freeform (14 - 16)
Location: West Rim, Ledge Mtn, Mesa
Enjoyment Level: 3 , 2, 1 (from start to finish)

Mile Splits: 18:50 / 19:31 / 19:21 / 19:14 / 12:40 / 12:48 / 12:48 / 12:51 / 12:32 / 12:26 / 12:15 / 13:19 / 12:13 / 13:05 / 11:51 / 11:25

Notes: This turned into a very challenging run, mostly because of the heat. It was a lovely morning at first, around 70. But the temps rose much faster than predicted over the course of the morning.

By the time I had finished the first 4 miles, which I walked, it was already 80. I started out with :30/:30 for the run, but it was immediately apparent that that was too aggressive for today. So I switched to :15/:30 and that worked well for the middle part of the run. It's interesting to note that my mile pace barely slowed down with this lower ratio. It was definitely more comfortable and my run segment pace must have picked up.

I had originally planned on doing 6 mile loops, after the first 4 mile walking loop. But I discovered that my (broken) left arm did not like carrying my hand-held water bottle -- too much weight, I guess. And I have never been able to carry it comfortably in my right hand. So I shifted the run to my 1 mile loop spot (Ledge Mtn) so that I didn't have to carry anything. Even though the temps were higher than I like, there was still plenty of shade for the first half of the run, so I wasn't that uncomfortable.

But around mile 8 or 9, I started losing my shade on this route, and by mile 11, it was gone. Running in the full sun was wearing me down, and I decided that if I wanted to do the full 16, I needed to find some shade. So I drove up to Mesa and found a stretch that was still fairly shady and allowed for about a 1 mile out and back to my car. It was amazing what a difference it made running in and out of shade. Those sunny stretches were very draining.

It was in the upper 80's by this time. After about mile 13, I decided to ditch the Gymboss and run/walk by shade/sun. I.e. I ran whenever I had shade and I walked when I had sun. During mile 14, my self talk was really about walking out the rest of the run. When I got to my car after 14 for the water stop, I got in and turned on the air conditioning for a couple of minutes with the fan on high and all the vents pointed at me. It made quite a difference, as you can see from the last two mile splits.

I was very glad when this run was over. I was pretty miserable by the end, but I did do the distance.
