I don’t know why the turtledash picture isn’t showing up on my sidebar, I thought perhaps I had changed the permissions to private in flickr but I checked and not so much. The complexity of my blog eludes me yet again.
On to the Rundown. Only three weeks till the 2007 Turtledash!
Tuesday’s run was pushing the boys in the chariot..eh. Two miles of running in gravel. Double Eh.
Thursday Lady J and I tried something new. We drug ourselves from our cozy, warm beds at 4:45am to meet up for an early morning run 5:15am. We spilled out of our cars into the inky darkness of what time is it anyway?
5:15am. Right. Now I’m no stranger to 5:15, but I haven’t left the house for awhile at that hour.
We grumbled and groaned and ran 3.5 miles sans strollers. It was over before the day began. My favorite kind of run!
I got home with an hour to spare ( I should have run 5miles…but was nervous about ETA and Scott’s departure) showered, and sewed a bit. Perfect. I love those runs!
Today’s run was supposed to be Eleven miles according Hal, but since I totally and completely died on last weeks run at the 8.5 mile mark (it was a ten mile run…Legolas actually drove back to pick me up……I’d like to say I refused the ride but that would be a lie) I opted for ten instead.
I ran the first 6.5 by myself and then looped back around so that I could meet up with Legolas for th last 3.5. I knew I would need help. And I did. I’m struggled through mile 7 and 8 but had come back by mile 9. I ended the ten miler feeling strong (and tired).
I was worried because after last weeks run I craved fruity pebbles all day (sugar) which is a major sign to me that I’m under training, and my body is upset. Today’s run ended on a high note and…
Hurray I’m back to my pre vacation weight…phew that only took two weeks. Or is it three?
I may be ready for the Turtledash after all!
