Friday night some friends came over for a church “meeting” after the kids went to bed and we ended up just eating and talking while celebrating my birthday. Cake and Cafe Rio. Yum! I was up way too late (for me).
My plan was to get up at 5am and run 10, so I could be done by 7am and hopefully showered and ready before the kids got up. HA! 5 came and went. I could not drag myself out of bed. I must have slept funny, because my hip and leg hurt and I did not want to run. I had a really bad attitude. Finally around 7:30 I decided to get my butt out of bed and get going. I could always shoot for 5 and call it good.
I watched 2 and a quarter of some FNL (friday night lights). I ran and ran and ran. I finally finished with a decent time. 1:49.
10:55 average pace.
Monday I like to run 5. I set out to run five. It was a bad day. I could barely make 3.
Tuesday I cross trained.
Wednesday night I ran 8.
Thursday morning I did 3
Friday I took off.
He got me the Garmin Forerunner 10 watch that I’ve been wanting for so long!
I always take Sunday off from running. It’s a great day of rest and day for family and church. But I just couldn’t help it when I saw this watch! At the end of our road is a cul de sac that they built when blocked the train tracks because of the Front Runner Commuter train….I just had to try it so I did a quick little run to the train tracks and back just to see how it worked.
I am so excited for this! Can I say that enough? Really….I love Map My Run. It’s free and it’s been a good motivation to me to log workouts, and see what others run and do as well as get comments and comment on others as well. I love it socially. And I found out that it syncs with my Garmin! YAY! I can still do both! I am really excited to see the new stats! Really – how many times can I saw how excited I am over this?
I am looking forward to this week. I am hoping to do some cross training and taking it a little easy.
I have a 5K race on Saturday. I have a time goal in mind. I’m hoping for a PR.
