So Far

So far it's been a good year for Willie.
My running looks like this:
Sunday - Yoga
Monday - I think I ran but can't remember, i.e. I'm FREAKIN OLD!
Tuesday - 5 miles on some good hills
Wednesday - 4 miles around my neighborhood
Thursday - 4 VERY COLD miles in the morning and Yoga in the afternoon
Friday- Rested
Saturday - 8 EXTREMELY COLD miles with the marathon training group

I'm hoping to get out later today and add some to that. Running is enjoyable and I'm actually looking forward to the miles. I've been trying to run the weekend training group runs hard (sub 8 minute pace) and use the weekly miles to recover and get some time on my legs.

In other news, things have settled into a routine pace again. I'm learning how to do this life and what I mean by that is that I'm really not good at it but I may be able to see where I'm going now at least. I have some wonderful people around me that are patiently teaching me. Couple this with 2 wonderfully understanding children and there is a bit of light shining through. Running is my therapy

Congrats to Southbay girl for running a great race today. Also congrats to RBR for finding the courage to register for another one of those swim-ride-run things. You gals are keeping me going and I can't wait to read all about your adventures.

Glad to hear that you're out there having fun and working that long run-hard! We are blessed to have great kids...I can't believe how nice it is to grow older in that respect!!

Glad to hear you're settling in, Willie. And yes, Penny did awesome, I can't wait to see her race report. I know she wanted a 2:30 but it sounds like it was pretty hot out there today!

Glad to hear you are also injury free, too. Keep working those weekend runs! Is this for the OCK Memorial marathon again?
