Soaking up the sun :)


Today, I ran 4 miles on the track…I warmed up for a mile and then really wanted to speed it up, intermittently, and I did, TWICE.  Yes, twice.  If I weren’t so grateful for what life has given me, I would be embarrassed.  But I’m not.  Twice is better than none, right?  Anywho, I’m trying to figure out how to get faster – obviously to run faster, one has to run faster…I get that.  I’m starting to think it may be food-related.  I usually eat breakfast pretty early and by the time I get to run, on a day like today, it was mid-morning.  I’m wondering if I would have felt the same had I eaten something in the interim…or, possibly, I just am not used to speedwork.  The speedwork I did in the last training program was mainly done on the treadmill, in air conditioning, due to blisteringly hot summers we have down here in South Louisiana.   I feel like a vampire many a day in August because I don’t want to go outside till the sun goes down!  Anywho, that’s what’s on my running mind today.  I managed to get 4 miles in, so that was good.  There was this BIG guy running – and he had a nice pace going – who was pretty inspirational to watch while I stretched on the side of the track.  I caught up to him a little later when he stopped and asked him about his running and he told me he ran a mile and a half & was going to do some SPRINTS!!!  More power to you, dude.  That’s awesome.  For me, not completing a run the way I would like weighs on my mind till the next meeting with the asphalt!  I actually considered getting out there again today, just to expend some energy, but then I realized my new pedi would not like it. ; 0  My feet are beaten up and the day I get a pedi is a great foot-day.  I don’t want to mess with that! 

Yay for the coming weekend!  Confirmation tomorrow night for my 16-year old son, 2 soccer games, and a baseball tournament AND a great weather forecast!  I might even feel the pool!!!
