Let's recap shall we...

So, its been a couple of days since I last let's recap quickly. Wasn't able to go to training on Tuesday since I was home sick (and when I say sick, I mean really sick - it takes a lot for me not to go to work). Lost a couple of days of training because of it. But got a really good run in on Saturday - 10 miles and felt good doing it. Last night was more tempo training, which was ok. I wasn't feeling good (didn't eat a big enough lunch) and took it easy. Gonna get up and go for a run tomorrow mornign.

Park to Park 10k

Ran the Park to Park 10k this weekend (that's 6.2 miles for those of you who don't know). Woke up Saturday morning feeling sick - no voice, stuffy nose and slightly nauseous. Because of that, I wasn't able to eat a good breakfast (a no, no before races). For the obvious reasons, I didn't have the best race, but still finished in 1 hour, averaging 9:48 min/miles. I'll post splits tomorrow.

Running in the Rain...

So training on Wednesday was not one of my best ones. It was pouring and for some reason, I had the worst side stitch. Still got about a 5.5 mile run in, which is good. Also got up on Thursday morning and went for a run. Park to Park 10k this weekend.

Disney is less then 6 months away! We just booked our dinner reservations. Can you tell we're excited?

Training tonight

Tuesday night training was moved to tonight. Luckily, it is much cooler today then it was yesterday, except there is a chance of run tonight. I remembered to bring a dry shirt in case it rains. No buying a new outfit! Can't do that everytime it rains. Tonight we are running by race, not by level. So all the Chi-towners will run together!

Got up yesterday and went for a 3 mile run, so I feel good. Gonna try and get up tomorrow morning and go for a run as well, since Helena is having a fundraiser tomorrow night and I know I won't be able to run then.

Back into the swing of things...back from Florida and ready to get back into training. Feeling a little behind, but nothing I can't catch up on. Hoping to get in some cross-training tonight.

This weekend we will be running the Naples - NYC Park to Park 10k. Should be a good run. Let's hope its not to hot!
