I'm so in love with running right now. I'm so happy to be back at it. I'm not a religious person, but I pray daily that I continue to improve, that I stay healthy, and that I continue to train smart. (being surrounded by Capital Area Runners helps with the training smart part)
Last weeks miles: 28.5 land
This weeks miles: 34.2 land
7 miles with Maria Sherwell.
She was strong, I was still sweating out alcohol from my Atlantic City trip. I said last week that I plan to minimize my drinking while marathon training, and this run was my reason. It's awful to feel how alcohol really effects your body. I'll still drink the occasional beer or glass of wine, but no more crazy nights for me, at least not until 10/10/11. (With my job, and drug reps taking our office out all the time for FREE happy hours, you start to find yourself in a bad habit...no more!)
Track. Repeat 400's. HOT 6.5 miles total.
2 mile warm up
400-dropped. Couldn't breath problem again.

Considering it was a million degrees today, I'm okay with the workout.

Saturday: LET MARATHON TRAINING BEGIN!!
Long run: 10 miles.
I miss my running pals. I ran alone. I may need to find another running group for my long runs. Running 10 miles alone is okay, but 20 miles, no thank you. Does anyone know of other groups that long run Saturday mornings?
