Home for Now

I am now home from Canada. No more goose attacks. And no more running. We got up early Friday and planned to run, but it was about 35 degrees and raining hard. So we opted to stay in. Two of my coworkers had the treadmills claimed, so I didn't have an opportunity to run.

I made up for it today, though, with a five mile run. I am tired and sore now, but it went very well. Half mile run, stretch, 1.5 mile run, .1 walk, 1 mile run, .1 walk, 1 mile run, .1 walk, 1 mile run. Every mile was under 10 minutes, with the last being right about 9:30. Kristin has been doing the similar routine on track. Alternating between one-tenth walks and half-mile runs.

I also got caught up with Kristin's activity over the last week. She has put in 10.85 miles this week, including two 3-milers.

I plan to go to the running store (Second Sole) tomorrow to see about getting a new pair of shoes. I've not been to a running store before. The shoes I'm in now are $50 Asics that I got at Famous Footwear. The long run today definitely proved to me that I need a new pair.

At this point I am planning to run a 5k on April 26. Kristin's work schedule doesn't work out at all for her to get to one of these early runs. So it looks like she won't get a race in during April. We'll see what we can do moving forward.

I leave for Denver tomorrow and I won't have internet access. So this blog won't get updated until next weekend.
