Reduced mileage week

7 miles

TM speedwork. 6 x 400 meters a little faster than 5K pace with roughly 200 meters jog in between. Then one 1600 meters at 5K pace.

For whatever reason, the song Scenario by A Tribe Called Quest (I know this is dating me) seemed to have the perfect beat today. I must have replayed it a dozen of times. Funny!

Happy Monday!! :)

10.5 easy miles on the TM (it was too dark and windy outside and I wanted to finish watching The Biggest Loser).

I found myself itching to run faster ... that's a good sign. :)

(I did throw in a couple of 400s just for the taste of it.)

Just kind of ...ish again. Not awesome, but certainly not bad. :)

A few mishaps: gun went off while I was in the POP; dropped my inhaler twice and had to run back to get it each time; and I got lazy around mile 9. I had it in my head that I wanted to run a sub 1:40 (hard-hard but not max out) and once I knew I had that my umph kinda disappeared. I know I didn't run as hard as I should have because once I saw Andy (whom btw, did AWESOME) with about a mile left and he told me to pick up the pace, I realized I had plenty left in the tank. Oh well, at least there won't be any recovery time involved! :) I didn't think about running this race until a couple of weeks ago when my SIL asked me to pace her the last 10K of the full marathon. That is where my heart was, and that was by far the best part of the day (that and seeing Brooke so many times during my half -- I just love her and was grateful to toss my inhaler to her at mile 7ish so I wouldn't have to worry about that dang thing dropping again)!!!!

A HUGE congrats to my SIL, Annie http://andrea27.fastrunningblog.com/ for finishing her first full marathon!!!!! :) :) :)

Fun day!!! :)
