Catch up!

It as been a while since I posted on my training, there's not enough hours in the day!

My last long run was one week ago, it went pretty well and now I am tapering down until the race.

So far, this week, I have ran 17 miles and feel stronger every day.

Today, I changed it up by running 5 miles at a good pace then slowed down to race pace for 3 miles. I then finished with a mile cool down and felt strong all the way.

Now it's off to bed..that made me tired looking at the miles I have run!

Thursday's Run..The Ugly

Today my legs felt like dead weights!    Normally,  I like to wake up early,  get my run over with and have the rest of the day to catch up on errands.

Today, I had to change my schedule because this morning was the first meeting of the Lifelight Groups at Church and I did not get home until eleven, then changed and hit the trail about a half hour later.  I am a creature of habit and usually have a tough time when my schedule changes from the norm.

Today was not my best run but I have chalked that one in the books, now on to the next!

Start of a new week and Happy Labor Day!

Just a quick note to update my training. I logged 30miles last week because of my long run on Thursday. My legs were still tired on Saturday morning but was able to get a nice 6 miles completed. Actually, the longer I ran the better my legs felt.

This morning I ran 5 miles in Loveland before I drove down to the city to get ready for the work week. Oh, my working just gets in the way of my training!

Have a Wonderful week!

It has been awhile since I posted my runs! Today was another long run and my feet are feeling it at this very moment.

This post will be in three parts because at one point I decided to play in a sprinkler to cool off and my GPS stopped working and it took a while to get my darn watch back on track!

Now here is where the GPS was not working and I lost at least a mile if not a little more. Grrrrrrr!

When I discovered I was not going to get the bezel working, I turned off the Garmin and did not turn on again until I found a place where I knew the exact mileage, just in case it stopped working again.

So there you have it for today!

My legs are sore but not miserable.  I decided to not follow my training plan exactly,  I needed to increase my mileage from what it suggested and I think that is why I had a better run today!

I hope you have a wonderful week!
