Last night I had planned to take my daughter to dance, then run 4-5 miles. My husband called me late in the afternoon saying he was going to go down shopping in the US. My daughter was going to skip dance and go too. Did I want to come??? Uhhh, yeah I did - but my plans!
No matter which way I looked I wouldn't be doing exactly what I planned. Now I could stay and exercise at home. But .....
Tricia at Endurance Isn't Only Physical posted pictures of her wearing the most adorable dress the other day.
Note: This is NOT Tricia
And, she was super kind and sent me the link to where I could purchase it - Kohls! I had looked at it online and almost went ahead and purchased it, but then thought if I could get the chance to go cross border, maybe they'd have it in stock and I could try it on.
So I agreed to go.
Turns out they didn't have it in stock .... and now it's not available online anymore either. Grrrr, the difference a couple days makes!
Anyhow, we didn't get home until almost 9:30. Kinda late to run. But ... I have a goal and I'm GOING to reach it! So as soon as we got home I laced up and headed downstairs. My husband said, "You're going to run at 9:30 at night????" YUP!
First, I can't really afford to take a rest day when I don't need it. I have alot of running days ahead of me to reach my goal this month. I'd rather take a rest day after a long run or a series of tough runs - when I really need it. Plus, I know that every little mile helps.
I didn't want to run for long, so I ran fast! I did 2.5 miles in 20 minutes - 8:00 min/mile. That's FAST for me! I can comfortably do that for 1 mile, but I haven't been able to do it for much more than that. WOOOHOOO. This makes me VERY pleased! I can't wait until I can run a 10K at that pace.
So ...as of yesterday I have:
20.3 miles completed
79.7 miles to go!
I'll be making a pretty good dent in those remaining miles today. The weather is GORGEOUS and I'm going to take full advantage of it!
Have a FABULOUS day!
