Picking up where I left off

Ok, it has been almost a week since I last ran. I had a tooth extraced and took some time off. Today, I ran 4 miles and was able to keep my pace at sub 12 minute miles. I feel greast knowing thatI can keep this pace. I have been doing research on dietary restrictions and types of derink to have before,during, and after the runs and I still have not decided on a certain brand or to continue to mix my own. I cannot wait to push up the mileage this week in preperation for the ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run 10K on Feb. 26.

Good run finished with heavy legs and a STRONG HEADWIND. Feel great after the run and no pain except in my lower back. I might nee this looked at for longer distances.

Bad Week

Ok, this week I had so manyintentions to run on 4 days and well, I did not. I have been carpooling to work with a coworker an have not brought my clothes to run while at work. I have been getting home late and not to mention it is cold. I know these are excuses and I will make up for this and of course have to suffer for this in the form of the lactic acid after my next run.

Great day for a run! I missed my turn and did 3.5 not 4 and had a cramp at mile 3. This post is a few days late, but better late than never.

Well it is the new year and I am back on schedule for training for the MCM in October. I did 3.5 miles and feel great. I overdressed fo r today's run and might not wear the long sleeve shirt if it gets above 60 degrees. I am looking into running events around the city for me to partake in to help me to train and network. I will have more to come.
