A Post About Nothing

I ran 46 miles last week.

This week will be around 54.

I have 7 weeks until the next marathon (will be #4).  

Tempo runs are going great.  They are on Thursdays. For the last 3 weeks I have done 8 miles at marathon pace.  Goal pace: 7:38

2 weeks ago splits:
7:34, 7:47, 7:48, 7:40, 7:42, 7:41, 7:42, 7:26 (not bad but some were a little slow)

1 week ago splits:
7:35, 7:37, 7:35, 7:35, 7:36, 7:33, 7:28, 7:31 (pretty nice....but all were too fast...I don't want to bonk)

Yesterday's splits:
7:39, 7:40, 7:38, 7:37, 7:39, 7:40, 7:39, 7:39 (YES....that's more like it)

I dropped a 5 gallon jug of water on my foot on Wednesday.  Hurt like crazy. Ryan informed me it hurt because they weigh 40 pounds.  I was balancing it on my bumper to close the hatch and it slipped...onto my foot.  It's ok though...luckily.

On Tuesday, Ryan and I ran at the track with my 3 nephews. I had to do speedwork. The 4-year old "O" (who is the cutest thing on Earth with giant blue eyes and has eyelashes like a camel) ran 2 laps with Ryan. One of them was completely without stopping.  Ryan and O were both wearing bright yellow.  Ryan helped O with his stride and they ran side-by-side. Cutest thing ever....this tiny runner with beautiful natural form looking up at Ryan in the beautiful NM sunshine chatting as they ran together.  A moment I will remember. SOOOOO wish I'd had my camera.

Run Happy Everyone!
