it’s now 11:38pm just took a cool shower from the 3 mile run …

it was a rough one ugggg hard to keep going did

it in 50 minutes … which is faster for me … but it just was hard to do…

i did some speed work ( a little) … then finished up the last bit of the 3rd mile outside

cause the gym was closing …. thanks Becca for putting up with me …. somedays are better than others….

glad i had a partner!!!! we are on week 5 of our training 🙂 YEA!!!!!

A warm day indeed, and not much accomplished at home, but I did get this run in for the day… Becca my daughter and running partner had told me earlier that we would be doing our long run separate due to schedule issues, so i decided to run late right before the sun went down… i did text her when i went out and she decided to join me .. though we never ran together we did pass each other twice on the trail and ended up at the house for lots of water! My first mile was difficult, the right ankle was bothering me, and getting myself to want to run was another issue …so it was run walk run walk run walk for the first two miles then i picked up pace a little for 1/2 mile then did the last 2 1/2 running and walking for 10 second counts and running for 20 second counts …does that make any sense for the reader? just wandering…:-)  but it helped me to keep going and not to walk long in between running …i saw two sunks on the trail…. tried to pass them without getting noticed 🙂 there were bikers, and walkers, and runners out there tonight…. one man even  stopped me to ask about bites ….if I had been bitten much this summer…nope i replied and kept running ….oh and did I mention that had a small small small stone in my right shoe that decided to jump in my shoe and be apart of the run…. i did not want to stop and take my shoe off, so i just tried to ignore it … when i got done, i figured out my pace it was a 17.29 pace …. slow but that is ok – the main thing is that i did it and even by myself 🙂  after i got home my daughter came in the door next she did a 10…ish pace, then my husband came in the door, he did a 9 something pace … we all were pretty drenched from the heat … good job to all of us … glad my running partner made it out after all 🙂

Running at Zip …. on a treadmill…. it’s one of those things that i love and hate …tonight Becca and I did three and a little better running pace …really trying hard not to walk, Becca had to count with me on that last lap – i really wanted to stop!!! but yea i did it..and it’s not a good idea to eat dinner before a run….need to get that down better… we had really hot weather so that’s why we hit the treadmill today…yesterday it was about the same …was suppose to do 4 but ran out of time cause i had to leave to get my mother in law over to the cancer treatment center for her blood work and hydration for the day … had planned on doing another mile that evening but did not get it in…did a little bit of yard work instead …oh something cool – my daughter bought me some new shorts, 2 running tops and a pink sports/running bra – pretty cool of her i think!  🙂  she does like the shorts that i was running in they were teal with black dots all over them…ah ah, i really did not like them either but it’s what i have ….well this 51 year old is tired and needs to get some sleep … happy dreaming of running 🙂

 

we went out for a night run, on the bike trail….it was a cool evening … at first i thought i would get cold, but i was wrong about that… just trying hard to stay running and not too much walking …tried to pick up my slow pace and find a better running stride …mmmm that’s hard fro me …but got through it … i got two misqitoe bites for sure… knee did start to hurt a little when we turned on toDeWoody Rd…but it was not tooo bad… lots of trying to keep my breathing under control did not want to pass out while running…. jesse walked beside me while i ran …ah …..that;s a slow pace but thats about all i can do …. i keep telling myself i am in high school, those were the days when running was a breeze and sooooo easy!!! now that i am over well 50 it is a challenge to get myself out the door …. but after i am done i am glad that i did….soo we did our 3 miles in 51.24 that’s a a 15.46 average pace not bad for this wanna be faster mom….so how’s that for my blog – my kids tell me i need to write different tell more…but my feet hurt right now so it’s off to bed i go, …tomorrow we have 4 miles to do…..

one step at a time…

Saturday at 7:50 pm  my daughter came over and we ventured out our front door  . . .

1.58 (so close to 2 hours) why don’t I just say 2 hours . . .  to get through  our first 7 miles!

So what do I write about, the right knee pain, the left leg pain, the ankles, and a toe ….notta

I like it when my daughter runs ahead of me then I tell myself I can do this . . .

We went south first on the bike trail, passed someone we knew … oh wait he passed us …..that’s another story.

The night was good – the summer heat was not as bad as it has been…

We saw a deer …

a biker,  trying to get around my daughter ~ she had her headphones on  and I could hear him say ” Woooo get over Wooo”  ….something like that.

It’s nice not to be out there alone, even though there are times we have to run alone…

We are training together….

I just gotta figure out how to run more than I walk tonight was not one of those time.

Good job daughter ~ thanks for waiting on me to catch up with you every mile or so 🙂

It’s 6:16 pm waiting for my daughter … we are going out to do 7 tonight…

For me it’s a walk/run time . . .

I have a long way to go to be able to run run and run and keep running … one step at a time 🙂
