Muddy Post

UGH...so just lost my post so now you get the QUICK verison.

HAPPY SATURDAY! Woke up to balmy temps (41 degrees) and decided to hit the road running. It was muddy and messy but felt so good. I tried to focus on my surroundings and not my pace or time. I spotted two hawks, some horses and enjoyed the smell of fresh hay and wet dirt as I inched along. This distraction didn't last long and I was again worried about my time and pace. I am worried that I won't be FAST enough or STRONG enough to pull off the 26.2 miles I am hoping for? I know I know....I need to take a CHILL PILL. Considering getting a t-shirt with that saying on it just as a BIG REMINDER!
My shoulders were tired and burning a bit as well...I tried to relax and let them dangle...so something to work on I guess!

But overall I ran hard and enjoyed myself!
Miles 5.8
Time: 49:45
Ave. Pace 8:34


jogged the last .20
TOTAL 6.0

Only one more day until TRAINING begins...can't wait to start crossing of some runs and rebuilding my endurance!

On another note...KADIE and There She Runs, tagged me with the Stylish Blogger Award!
Thank you so much!! Made my day!

So here are my 7 random things about ME!
1. I have a hard time letting my kids hang out in their jammies on stay home days.

2. I can't stand cotton balls...don't even bring one near my toes to take off polish.

3. I am one of 6 kiddos. (no, not Mormon or Catholic)

4. I tend to be tender hearted and get my feelings hurt easily.

5. I LOVE LOVE LOVE having 3 kiddos. It's just right!

6. I can water ski. Grew up in Florida. (kind of sorta)

7. I don't like beans. (just the green ones)

OK hope those were random enough for you! I tag the first seven people who respond!
Have fun!!

Nice job on your run!!

Oh, how you wouldn't approve of my house then :) I see no point in getting out of jammies if we're just staying home... Yes. I'm that bad!

Great sixer H love!! I'll take mud over the snow anyday!

Michelle said...

no cotton balls? I've never heard of someone not liking those!

Eryn said...

I agree with Meredith, to me, staying in jammies when we're home means one less outfit in my dirty laundry pile...I mean, if no one's gonna see it, why not? :)

Great job on your run...that is a killer pace!

Karen said...

Is there a reason you have to go "fast enough"?? I'm trying to work on running for pleasure, and not killing myself on pace. Sometimes I win the battle, and sometimes I don't. I'm a work in progress :)

Loved your 7 things :) Cotton balls, huh? Guess you had a hard time in arts and crafts in kindergarten! We made these cute little cotton ball chicks in empty egg cartons for Easter. Ok, that was random :P

Angie said...

Excited to hear about your training! I'm sure you are going to love it!

YOu have loads of time to teach your legs race pace. Do not stress, stress causes your body to slow...the best thing you can do is relax and let the run come to you..
