Thursday September 30, 2010

Distance Ran = 3.2 miles
Length of Run 35 minutes
Route = 5k backwards

Ran with L today, It was cold and I wore shorts.  Bad idea.  Also, I think I may be getting a cold because I was so phlegmy and found it hard to breathe.  Otherwise a good run.
I am planning on running 9 miles this Saturday, I can't wait for the challenge!

Distance Ran = 3.5 miles???
Time of Run = Anywhere from 35 to 45 minutes, stopped tracking - need a watch!
Route = 5k plus loop

I ran with L again today, as always we had some great conversation.  Lately I have been having a hard time getting up to run, I blame the dark.  Knowing that L is waiting for me is great motivation and I NEVER regret how I feel once we start.  It's just a great way to start a day, especially when I know it will be a busy one.  L, if you are reading this, you are a great running partner - thanks!

Well, I did it again.  I have completely psyched myself out for tomorrow's race!  At 10:40 tomorrow morning me and my team "Kiss my pass" will start the Dirty Dash!  I just looked at some pictures from the Boise race on facebook...AHHHHH!   What did I get myself into?!?

I don't really like to get dirty, I hate being cold, and basically I am a giant baby.  What did I get myself into?!?

Distance Ran = 8 miles
Length of Run = 1 hour and 9 minutes (Just about 9 minutes per mile)
Route = running trail nearby

Today I ran with a very driven and focused runner buddy of mine.  I tried to run with her about 4 months ago, it was actually my first run in about a year and she kicked my butt.  We "ran" 6 miles, but I had to stop and walk quite a bit.  Since that run I have been determined to get to a point where I could comfortably run with her again, and I am proud to say that I did it!  This is also my furthest run to date, and of course the time is great!  Basically I am proud of myself, I ran the entire thing and I felt good afterward and I could walk the day after.  Those are all great things and I think that I can officially call myself a runner now.  DIRTY DASH is this Saturday and I can't wait!

Distance Ran = 3.5 miles
Time of Run = unsure (anywhere from 35-40 minutes)
Route - 5k plus to church

I have a new running buddy!  Good friend L and I ran together this morning and it was great!  A couple of women have been attacked in broad daylight near my home so from now on I vow to always run with someone.  Anyway, we had a good run and a good conversation.  We are planning on running together on Thursday too.

Less than two weeks until the dirty dash and I am so excited!  The only thing I am not looking forward to is driving home with mud everywhere.  I'll have to figure that one out...

Distance Ran = 5k
Length of Run = 28.17 minutes (8.81 per mile...PR!!!)
Route = 5k route

It was crazy windy this morning, it seemed to always be changing directions and so I felt I was mostly running into the wind.  It was nice and cool though, and no mosquito's.  I pushed it this morning and am happy with my results!  I would really like to shave off another minute or so on my 5k time.  That is my goal for next week's Tues and Thurs runs.

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Distance Ran = ?  Maybe 1.5 to 2 miles?
Length of run = Wasn't keeping track
Route = Round a bout way to get mail for friend and back.

I had a really late night last night so I slept in this morning.  Later on I borrowed my neighbors double jogging stroller and went for a run with a boys.  Why don't I have a jogging stroller!?!  Oh yeah, they are pricey.  Anyway, it was  a lot of fun to have them along, I just let them pick which direction we ran each time we got to an intersection.  They were comfortable and quiet and enjoyed it as well.  Plus, it was hard to run pushing 60 pounds of kid, good training for the dirty dash I think. 

Saturday, September 4th 2010

Distance Ran = 6 miles
Time of Run = 1 hour
Route = trail behind house

I ran with another runner today who is also preparing for the "dirty dash".  She is a good friend from high school that happens to live two blocks away from me.  We ran into each other on Thursday while we were both out running, got to talking and found that we were both preparing for the same race.  We are going to do Saturday runs together for the next little while.  It was a lot of fun!
