Today was our Sunday 10 mile run – I haven’t actually put together a workout plan for the marathon yet, but I’m sure it should involve adding more miles sooner or later. February will be here before I know it. Today’s average pace was 9:46 min miles – and thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s with an eight minute break after mile five. Ahhh, we do love nature. Time 1:36:42.
Yesterday it was a sunny 85 degrees and I was washing my car in flip flops and shorts. This morning it was a windy and a chilly 28 degrees. Got to love Texas weather. I froze my butt off the entire time – but, overall it was a good run. Miles three through seven did involve several tweeny* hills. Those would be the rolling hills that are not large enough to slow you down, but irritating enough to hasten the respiratory system.
Great to have you back Karrie – you ran really strong and your first 5 miles rocked, it was a striking come back from your recent illness. Richard, thanks for being tall and wearing the blinking light – you ran really well today.
*In popular culture it has been used to describe children in the age range of 8 to 12 years old – also known as the stage when children begin the slow torment of their parents with clever and often imperceptible degrees of skill. I use this term to describe things that are evil.
