What running last week?!

I have over laid my half training plan with my buckeye account again. I think it really kept me motivated. Last week my weekly mileage was 5.81, only two runs. Ew. I need to try a little harder I think. The last two runs were awful. I can't figure out my deal. Maybe seeing my goal for the day will get me to do the miles. We'll see.

In other news, I've been gardening! Yay. I'm addicted. I spend my days off trolling garden centers and nurseries.

Friday, May 9

I just read my results from the Maverick Stampede 4K last Sunday. 25:16.1 was my official time. 48th place overall. 11/38 in my age group. NICE! I'm happy!
Ran 6mi yesterday! Took about 1:04:10. I learned that the treadmill stops you after an hour. I felt strong, like I could have run more. But I didn't. I'm in love with my inhaler. Taking a break today. Packing and going to work tonight. Be in Chitown tomorrow.

Tuesday, May 6

Ran two miles today. AP 9:49! I felt slow the middle 0.25mi but picked it back up again towards the end. Once again, thank you inhaler. Whoo!

I think I'm not going to join the distance club with ORC. I just would miss too many of the long runs. Like these next two-three weeks I'd miss every single run they offered. That's not good. I hope to take a break tomorrow and then try for my long (maybe 6mi) run on Thursday or Friday. Yikes. Wish me luck.

Asthma

I think I've been in denial about my asthma. Brushed it off, said that I out grew it as a child. I fessed up at my phyiscal last week and my kind doctor wrote me a script for Proventil. I tried two puffs before my run today...wow. I'm in love. Is this how it's supposed to feel? No hot prickly feelings throughout my body, no huffing and puffing, no chest tightness. I didn't have the run of my life or anything. I hadn't run in about 4 days and only ran 4miles today when I was hoping to run an hour, who am I kidding? Oh well. There's always tomorrow. Yay for drugs!
