I know you are all just wondering how I am doing attempting to train with Hubbs working in another state and Army son; well in the Army. So to ease your mind, I have been running really well this week since last I updated you.
Wednesday ~ I did a double day a.m. 3.5 miles (27:09/7:45)
p.m. 6.5 miles (56:02/8:37) with the jogger
Thursday ~ Another double day a.m. 3.5 miles (27:41/7:55)
p.m. 6.5 miles (53:53/8:17) with jogger and biking sherpa
I must admit that my legs are feeling less than powerful but I know that I am getting stronger from simply pushing the jogger during my evening runs. When I run without it I feel very light.
Tonight I am struggling with hoping that the snow/sleet/freezing rain to continues and forces me to take a rest day. Which I was planning for Sunday since we are going to be out of town and I can not work out a bloggie meet up with my VA friends (next time!!).
I have 6 schedule for Friday and 12 for Saturday. I love long runs. They are so relaxing. It's nice to have 12 miles to clear my mind, to create amazing works of literary genius, to present my solutions to the health care crisis to the House and Senate, to obtain a peace treaty with Al-Qaedia through eloquent dialogue and cross a dozen imaginary finish lines in first place!!
What do you mentally amaze yourself with while on your long runs?
Did you know One More Mile is having a Slogan Contest? Go vote for me.
It's just one foot in front of the other...

Wondering just how far you chase those kiddos?
