What's next?

Now that my marathon is done, I think I'm in love...

even though I am sore (more stiff than sore) I'm ready to hit the pavement! Gonna give myself a week or two off to recover. I pulled my groin right before the race, so recovery has been slow. Now I can rest to fully heal.but as soon as I'm better, I'm hittin the road.

I may have recruited a few people to run with me next year...with a year training, who can say no?

This time, I'm gonna train to run straight...trying not to walk much.

Food for thought

Salads. Must eat more salads.

And LESS bread. (not carbs completely.just bread)

But, salads!

Keep on rocking it baby

Feeling a little under the weather the past few days, but that's not stopping me from running. I'm glad too, cuz I'm a little sore today. I can't imagine how sore I would be if I didn't run at all today.

I was supposed to run 8 miles, but only did about 7. I lost the bike path and just started running down Burbank Blvd. It felt like forever cuz my new headphones don't work. I found a little path, which was only half a mile...hoped it was longer.

I was almost done when I started coughing. I walked most of the way once that started. It felt good though to get up and run on my own today. No little D to run in front of me.

Next week is my 10 mile mark. The race is getting closer and closer. I just hope I can finish in less than 3hrs.

B E A Utiful!

After taking a week off from running, I was very tired and couldn't run very well... Or so I thought. I ran only 1.75 miles- running 14 min mile. Not very impressive considering I've done better AND I didn't go far. After a few (36) hours of feeling sorry for my lazy ass, I realized it was an accomplishment running for a mile straight! It was a different style of training than I was used to & time of day.  14 was pretty damn good for first run straight in the morning.

I hit the ground running today!!!
{which mythbusters proved is actually harder to succeed}
I had some pasta 2 1/2 hours before running & I was last to leave the office today so I was already amped up after work. Changed my clothes and ran out the door.

I did 3.3 miles in 43 mins! That's better times than any 5k I've done before.

not sure if I should thank the pasta or the adrenalin... Either way, I feel great. Tomorrow is a day off and back on the road Wednesday. 5 miles is on the calender. Thinking I should run on the beach with the sunset.  :)
