1. I am proud of myself for getting up at 5:33am to do some tempo miles on the 'mill, especially since it's my day off! Got almost 4 miles in total, with 2 tempo miles around 9:00min pace with a jog in between.
2. Last night I was browsing my own blog (so exciting I know) and saw that over HALF of my "Running Story" page was missing. I know I typed it all up. But somehow it was deleted before I published it. VERY bummed about that.
3. One of the reasons I love to register to for a race that requires training is because at least a few runs a week become "non-negotiable." Yesterday Bean was asking me about our schedule for Saturday and how many miles I had to do. I told him "12" to which he scuffawed, because he thinks I'm a lunatic even thought he supports my lunacy. But I appreciate that he knows how important it is for me to get my long run in and when I'm training for a race, those long runs are part of our family schedule. If I wasn't training for a race I'd be more likely to put it off or cancel it, if necessary. I DO work around our schedule and find the best time to run--but this is just one more reason why I decided to register to for a full marathon.
Hats off to my wonderful husband for supporting my lunacy!
