Thursday - 7 miles
Yesterday was my 7 mile, uneventful run. My goal - finish the thing before it got too dark, and quickly so we could take off to go over to our friend's house for a yummy Italian feast. I stayed and worked during lunch, so I didn't feel too guilty leaving at 4:00 to head home to start my run. Winds were low, traffic was light on the first 3.5 miles, that is. And, I got back in just enough time to stretch (really quick) and take my shower - then we were off. We had an excellent relaxing evening with our friends, talking about Italy while eating Italian food, drinking Italian wine - and both were delicious. We actually had adult-like conversations. So, so very nice! Very good peeps, they are! The kids had a blast too!
Grace was so beat, she passed out within seconds on the drive home.
This weekend, nothing much planned, but some Church activities, and some housework. I have an 8 mile run for the weekend and would like to get in some swimming for cross-training as well.
I am happy to say I had a good number of runs this month. They definitely weren't easy by any means. I know this is cake to some of you, but for me it's an improvement, that makes me smile. See:
Nov - 55 miles
Oct - 11
Sep - 0, Yes 0 miles.
Aug - 33
Jul - 69
The highest mileage month was Jan with 70, and that was while I was training for Myrtle Beach Half. While creeping up for the Half in Jan, I should log around 80 miles in Dec. It's just nice to be back out there on the road, no matter how slow I am. :-)
I straightened my hair this morning and here's a snapshot of it. It can get straight as a board with my awesome straightener, but it doesn't look as healthy as POM's recent pictures. I don't have all the right products, just yet - anyhow. ((wink))
Oh, and I thought a few of you would get a kick out of this. Grace climbed into bed the other night, and picked up my Running Times magazine and started looking at it. I quickly ran downstairs to get the camera to get this picture. She's reading about Marathoning "The Hanson Way".
Have a Fabulous weekend, All!
